Why migrate your website to HTTPS?
HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Product Protocol. It is a system which enables the transfer of information on the internet. This system is unprotected and is susceptible to manipulation and data theft.
In response of the growing concern over internet security, the protocol called SSL or Secure Socket Layer was invented. SSL protects information travelling on the internet. When HTTP is protected by SSL, the website become secure and reads as HTTPS.
HTTPS keeps the information secure by encrypting your data and by certifying the authenticity of your website. Encrypting the data means nobody can listen in, follow the user activities or steal any information.
Google and other search engines are also now encouraging the use of HTTPS.
