Continuing to resurface for all websites is having your site be HTTPS, through having an SSL Certificate installed on your website’s domain name.
Google Chrome has pressed this, for 4 years.
Chrome has made it a priority to let all website visitors know when a website is NOT SECURE & doesn’t have an SSL Certificate installed.
There has never been a more pivotal time, to install an SSL Certificate, to be HTTPS.
Without an SSL Certificate the website visitors experience & overall time on site are cut short.
We understand after many years of having a website online, for business we haven’t had to have an SSL Certificate and it feels forced.
It is by Google Chrome who accounts for 78% of internet browsing daily.
An SSL Certificate elevates the level of your website’s overall security directly affecting the website visitors or browser’s experience.
More website visitors are leaving websites within seconds if it shows its UNSECURE.
This increases the bounce rate which negatively impacts everything that follows.
The full price, for purchasing and installing an SSL is

In the most recent of years, there has been several great tools and services in the web development era. Content Management Systems (CMS) like WordPress allow owners to efficiently and quickly build an online presence. Their plugins, architectures, modules and extensions have made it so much easier than ever to get a website up and running without years of experience.
Unfortunately, there are negative side effects in regards to how do we keep our websites safe and secure? Here are some tips and tricks to keep your website secure.
- Update – We cannot stress enough that you need to update your website’s CMS. So many websites are being compromised due to outdated and unsecure software and plugins. It is vital to update your CMS as soon as a new plugin comes out.
- Backups – Just like anything else, everything can be lost in any sort of catastrophic event that can randomly occur. Sometimes, we just do not back our websites up enough, thinking it will not really matter. You will thank yourself in the long run when you take the time to consider backing up your websites files.
- Installing SSL – When you install an SSL on your website, it encrypts the communication between one point to the other, which is the server and the browser. This is very important for one specific reason, which is the SSL prevents anyone from being able to intercept that traffic. SSL is most especially important for E-Commerce website security.

Making sure your web site is designed to be responsive is one of the most important characteristics for any business. We will go through the importance of that decision throughout this blog post, but first let’s spend a bit of time explaining what exactly it means when a web page is “responsive.”
What Makes a Responsive Web Site?
First of all, let’s think about the different customers, clients, potential leads, or visitors might visit your company’s page on a daily basis. Sure, many of them will be using a desktop based computer, running various browsers including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or others. But increasingly, the majority of web traffic is not coming through on mobile devices. Think iPhones, Androids, iPads and other tablets – some people even use Blackberry believe it or not! Think about how time consuming and expensive it would be if your company’s web site, including each and every page, needed a separate design to display correctly on the visitor’s device! Having a responsive web site eliminates the need for this: the web design allows your page to detect which device/screen size the using is employing, and ‘respond’ with the correct layout.
What that means, is that whatever device someone comes to your web site, whatever screen size they are using, and whichever direction (up and down, or sideways) they employ, your page will display correctly, making it easy to navigate, and less troublesome. People browse around the web quickly, so if the page loads in a manner that makes it hard to read or get around – most people will just click off the page. That is a potential lost sale for you, as the business owner! Make sure your website is responsive, to make it easy on your visitors, and ultimately bring you more sales and future business.

IMPORTANCE OF THE SSL CERTIFICATE
Although it is true that an SSL Certificate alone will not secure your entire website, the critical importance of one cannot be overstated. It is a very important piece of overall web security. What the certificate does basically is encrypt data while it is in transit. When someone visits your company’s website, a connection is made between their computer/server and the server that your website is hosted on. Third parties could potentially intercept this data. So the SSL Certificate encrypts this data to protect both sides from having their information compromised. The details are somewhat more complex, but for the purpose of this blog the above description should suffice.
Website Maintenance: What You Don’t Know Could Hurt Your Website
As a company who has undergone website projects both large and small for several years, we at Web312 have been through different phases of web development and website trends. A couple of years ago, Web312 saw a huge shift in the amount of websites that went from being managed by developers to being managed by content writers with the assistance of Content Management Platforms and tools such as WordPress. Giving content writers the ability to publish his or her own content is a wonderful gift but with all of the power in the hands of the content developers is quite easy to forget that websites still need continuing maintenance. In fact, content managed websites need even much more than your old school static websites due to the technology that allows you to make those content changes such as with text, images and videos.
