SSL Implemented Site-Wide

Posted

We have successfully implemented Secure Socket Layer (SSL) in our main web site and online store.

Encrypted web pages are marked with a padlock icon with ‘https’ as part of the web site address (see inset image).

The traditional implementation of SSL is to use it only on web pages used for entering passwords or credit card information, keeping everything else non-secure.  But beginning 2017, most web browsers (Chrome, Edge, Mozilla, Safari, etc) flag non-secure web pages regardless of content.  From the perspective of the browsers, non-secure web pages are less trustworthy, hence users should be careful in accessing them.  Browsers warn users that sensitive data could be stolen from non-secure web sites.  Google News, YouTube and even Wikipedia, all of which are not traditional use cases of SSL (because no commercial transactions are made on these web sites anyway) have switched using SSL on all web pages.  So as you can see, the trend is to use SSL on web sites non-selectively.

There is even more pressure on e-commerce web site owners to start implementing SSL nowadays.  Committed to safeguard your data, we as an e-commerce company have responded to such call.  All our web pages have now switched to full encryption, not only on web pages used for entering passwords and financial information but all web pages, hence there is no likelihood of somebody eavesdropping over your data.  Whether you are merely browsing our web page or actually purchasing from our store, your data travel in the internet super highway in encrypted form.
