Securing Your Website

What happens when I secure my website?

Securing your website makes it appear secure with a padlock to the left of the web address in your browser. Secure (HTTPS) websites ensure the information sent or received is encrypted in transit.

HTTPS Example

Let’s Encrypt is a free service enabling you to generate ssl certificates to secure your website - We provide you with functionality in the control panel to generate these.
