Coming this Summer, July 2018 to be exact, Google is scheduled to make a major release of their Chrome web browser. This is a very important release because they will be making insecure (http) websites appear with a strong notification that they are not secure, discouraging users from visiting these websites.
"Chrome's new interface will help users understand that all HTTP sites are not secure, and continue to move the web towards a secure HTTPS web by default," Google said in a statement. Chrome 68 is scheduled to be released in July.
Security has become an important part of our every day lives since we are so widely connected to the Internet. Everyone should be concerned about protecting their own websites and their visitors from any transactions or interaction with the website.
The process of purchasing an SSL certificate and installing it has become easier and SSL certificates are more affordable now. If you are already hosting your website with Evolve Web Hosting, you can easily complete the checkout process and install your certificate within minutes* using our AutoInstall plugin found in your cPanel account.
* Business(OV) and Extended Validation (EV) certificates take longer to process.
