What is HTTPS?
If you see that little padlock in the address bar of your web browser, that means you are visiting a secure HTTPS website. This means the data you’re sending to or receiving from that site is encrypted and protected.
HTTPS helps prevent intruders from tampering with the data that goes in and out of your website to your users' browsers. Intruders that may target your website, such as intentionally malicious attackers, and legitimate but intrusive companies, such as ISPs or hotels may inject unwanted ads into pages that may cause your website to slow down, malfunction, crash or in worse cases, totally shut down.
One of the main benefits of HTTPS is that it adds a layer of security and trust for your website. It protects users against attacks that can be launched from compromised or insecure networks. Intruders can use such techniques to steal your customer’s sensitive data and information.
The HTTPS website security included in your $14.99/mo subscription includes an additional layer of security for your website at no additional cost.
