The time has come where all websites need to be encrypted with security technologies such as SSL certificates. It is no longer acceptable to just host a website using the standard HTTP protocol. In fact, in the latest algorithm updates and Chrome updates, Google has started to block insecure websites to protect peoples information from being leaked through an unencrypted connection.
Here at Dynamic Servers Limited, we provide free SSL certificates to all of our clients to ensure that their websites and emails are encrypted at all times. From the moment your domain is pointed to our servers, we will enable the SSL certificate to ensure that you are secured right from the word go. We will make sure that everything is in place for a smooth transition.
If your website is not secure, you are at risk of being penalised under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR calls for all website owners to ensure that all communication and access through their website is encrypted using an SSL certificate. If website owners fail to acknowledge this they are at the risk of being landed with a fine.
All of our free SSL certificates come with automatic renewal. They renew every three months. This ensures that they remain compliant with any algorithm updates or legislation changes regarding privacy. We regularly check the installed SSL certificates to make sure that they are working as we expect them to. Content that you upload to your website once the certificate has been activated will automatically use HTTPs if your website is set to use HTTPS. If your website is set to use HTTP users will see a browser warning and may navigate away from your website altogether.
Email encryption is vital. All emails now need to be sent using SSL/TLS encryption. This prevents hackers and scammers from intercepting the email whilst it is in transit. This could have to potential to cause a data leak if you are sending confidential information.
If you are unsure if your website is using SSL encryption, simply look for the green padlock in the address bar. If your website is not secure, please contact our team either by phone or by a support ticket.
