What is HTTPS://

HTTPS is Security For Customers

The ‘s’ in https:// stands for SECURITY and provides an encrypted security environment between a browser and a website with a valid security certificate installed.

HTTPS provides additional encrypted security for sensitive information like credit card details or contact information – name, email address etc.  If you collect email addresses for newsletters or subscription forms,  then we highly recommend installing a secure certificate on your hosting server.
