    The HTTPS/SSL update refers to the process of transferring websites from the non-secure 'HTTP' protocol to the secure 'HTTPS' protocol. This migration is performed by installing an SSL Certificate on a website server.

    Hello Friends,

    The HTTPS/SSL update refers to the process of transferring websites from the non-secure ‘HTTP’ protocol to the secure ‘HTTPS’ protocol. This migration is performed by installing an SSL Certificate on a website server.

    The HTTPS/SSL update became a crucial movement thanks to Google’s ‘HTTPS Everywhere’ initiative which started in 2014. Since then, Google encourages website owners to make their sites more secure by installing SSL Certificates and adopting HTTPS.

    Therefore, there are 3 main reasons why you should perform an HTTPS/SSL update if you haven’t done it yet:

    Security – an SSL Certificate ensures web connections’ security and protects them from third party interventions, like Man-in-the-Middle attacks.
    SEO – HTTPS encryption has become mandatory for all the websites. If your site doesn’t use an SSL certificate, it won’t appear in SERP (Search Engine Results Pages)
    Trust - securing the connection between your website and your visitors’ browsers will make the last ones feel safe and trust you more. An Extended Validation SSL Certificate is recommended for assuring the highest level of trust.

    After the HTTPS/SSL update Google will warn visitors that your website is not secure. Google gives priority to websites that have an SSL certificate. Some search engines want all sites to be secure and use it from now on.

    Chrome, Firefox and other browsers now show that the site is unsecure without it

    Hello,

    Firstly, HTTPS stands for the HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure whereas SSL stands for the Secure Sockets Layer which is known as standard security technology. It gives a boost in the search engine ranking as per this update. You can move your websites from HTTP to HTTPS by using the SSL certificate.
