Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/16/2018 -- Titan Web Agency is currently offering free website security upgrades.
"We are offering to take business websites from an HTTP setting to an HTTPS setting. The 'S' on the end means Secure Sockets Layer. It is another step to making a website secure against hackers and outside attacks," said Tyson Downs, owner of Titan Web Agency. "In most browsers you can see a little padlock icon in the browser's website bar. This is another way to tell you that the website is secure."
The $250-value service is available on a first-come, first served basis. Those interested should sign up at TitanWebAgency.com/ssl. Mr. Downs said he expects a very high demand for this service.
The website owner just pays the cost of the SSL certificate. Titan Web Agency handles the remainder of the work.
The cost of the SSL certificate will vary based on the website host company's fees.
SSL is very important for business websites.
"If you do not have the SSL, you are very much a sitting duck waiting for a hunter to come along. You have little to no protection. Even a beginning hacker can open your website and start making all kinds of changes to it. SSL means instead of sitting, the duck is flying at maximum speed and dodging all over the place," he said. "Your host company may provide some level of security, but that is minimal."
SSL is critical for businesses that gather customer information and process online sales through the website, Mr. Downs said.
"SSL provides a layer of encryption, a way of hiding and scrambling information. Internet-savvy customers will not do business with a website that does not have SSL or the SSL is expired. If you want to take online payments, you must have SSL," he said. "Most SSL certificates also come with a claims policy so if something does happen, the insurance steps in to cover damages and costs. If you do not have SSL, you are liable for all the expense and damages your customers may have."
Titan Web Agency is an SSL website. Mr. Downs said he will not run a website without that layer of protection.
Another reason for the SSL certificate is Google. The Internet search giant is pushing hard for all websites to have SSL. Businesses without this security will find their ranking pushed down in the results.
