Web Hosting Updates – July 2018

Site Security – SSL Certificates

Google Rules The World!

Yes, today Google dictates most of the Internet world and coming in July 2018 they will begin to mark all websites without a website Security Certificate as “not secure”.

Google Site Security SSL - Atlanta Website Design

  • Why is Google doing this? All of the security hype and the recent Facebook fiasco has prompted Google to take the lead and force website owners to verify their website via a Security Certificate and SSL (secure sockets layers).
  • Is this a good move? Yes, the end result will be that all “secure” websites will have been verified that they are “who they say they are” and will give website visitors more security assurance.
  • What will this cost? There is an annual fee for your Security Certificate. Also, there is a fee for installation and configuration of all your web pages and website content.

Annual Fee for Security Certificate – $100
Installation & Website Configuration – $150 (one-time fee)

Total Cost – $250

  1. Existing Website / Re-design – We can re-design your existing website and ensure the new site is mobile-friendly
  2. Existing Website / Addition of Mobile Website – We can build a Mobile Website to compliment your Desktop Website
