Website Encryption SSL/TLS Service Google HTTPS Rankings Boost Advisory Launched

Hosted In Canada has launched a new advisory focusing on the importance of secure websites online in today’s climate. Sites that don’t have SSL/TLS are in danger of being left behind.

Calgary, Canada - October 12, 2017 /PressCable/ —

A new security advisory has been launched by Hosted In Canada, the friendly web host that helps people to find their ideal domain. It explains that 97% of sites online are not secure, and that they run the risk of being left behind. Every site working with Hosted in Canada will be secured for free.

More information can be found at: https://www.hostedincanada.com/google-ssl-requirements.

The advisory indicates that there are changes coming to Google’s HTTPS requirements, which will have a big impact on sites around the world. Hosted In Canada explains that HTTP will soon be a thing of the past, and that it’s time for people to start preparing for a totally encrypted web.

According to a February 2016 Netcraft report, only 3% of websites today’s make use of SSL/TLS encryption. This is a basic level of security that every website should have, and is something that every customer working with Hosted In Canada will enjoy.

In an era where 90% of large organizations have been hacked, it’s controversial that so many websites online simply aren’t as secure as they could be. Google is now changing its settings, and websites that don’t feature this kind of encryption are likely to get left behind.

New HTTPS incentives will include warning visitors when they visit a website that doesn’t have SSL/TSL configured. This is to ensure that awareness is spread, and to display more initiative, allowing people to realize when they are landing on a site that has no data security.

As part of the new initiative, Google Chrome will show a red “X” beside the domain name of any site that doesn’t comply. Further to this, Google already gives an SEO rankings boost to sites with SSL/TLS. After its announcement in 2014, it implemented these changes, and the effects are starting to be felt.

Websites with SSL are now experiencing up to 5% more in search visibility simply through their security options. Full details can be found on the URL above, which breaks down a number of other areas pertinent to the issue.

Pro-EU protesters march in London, demand new vote on Brexit

Jun 24, 2018

LONDON — Tens of thousands of anti-Brexit protesters marched Saturday in London to demand a new referendum on leaving the European Union, as a divided Britain marked the second anniversary of its vote to quit the bloc. Leading Brexit supporters, meanwhile, warned the British government not to delay or water down the divorce from the 28-nation bloc. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Prime Minister Theresa May must deliver the "full British Brexit" that voters were seeking. Britain voted 52 percent to 48 percent on June 23, 2016 to quit the EU, and its official exit is slated for March 29,...

2 years on, Brexit vote has taken a toll on UK economy

Jun 24, 2018

LONDON — While it's still unclear what Brexit will look like when it happens next year, the decision to leave has already had a clear effect on the economy: households are poorer, companies are more cautious about investing, and the property market has cooled. In the two years since the vote to leave the European Union, Britain has gone from being a pace-setter among the world's big economies to falling into the slow lane. And the uncertainty over what relations with the EU will be when Brexit becomes official on March 29, 2019 could make matters worse. Prime Minister Theresa...

LONDON — It's been two years since the shoppers and traders of London's Romford market voted by a wide margin for their country to leave the European Union. Enthusiasm for Brexit in this working-class district on the British capital's eastern edge hasn't dimmed. But with Britain still not out the EU exit door and negotiations slowed to a crawl, impatience is growing. "I think most people are just fed up," said fishmonger Dave Crosbie. "It seems that you take two steps forward and all of a sudden you've got to take a step back." A mere 20 miles (32 kilometers)...

Airbus threatens to leave Britain in case of no-deal Brexit

Jun 24, 2018

LONDON — Aviation giant Airbus is threatening to leave Britain if the country exits the European Union without an agreement on trade relations, underscoring the concerns of business leaders who say the government is moving too slowly. Airbus, which employs about 14,000 people at 25 sites in the U.K., said it needs to know by the end of the summer what rules will govern its operations or the company will "reconsider its long-term footprint in the country." Airbus also says a proposed transition deal that runs through December 2020 is too short for the company to reorganize its supply chain....
