Encrypt your website for free

Tuesday, 31 January 2017 12:24

Keep your website secure and protect sensitive data using Let’s Encrypt.

There has been a push for all websites to use encryption (https).  This will make your website more secure and protect the privacy of visitors to your site.  It is also likely to increase your search engine ranking

The good news is that you can encrypt your website and get a security certificate using a free service called Let’s Encrypt.  Even better, some website hosting companies are now offering this as part of their standard packages.  So you may be able to encrypt your website at the click of a button.  Get in touch with your web developer to see if they can do this for your website.

We recommend that all of our customers encrypt their websites to protect their visitors.  We will set up encryption for any new websites we build.  Security is particularly important if you store personal or sensitive information, or if you sell anything through your website. 

If you want to know more about website encryption and security certificates, read our article: Should you encrypt your website?

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to discuss this further.
