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.

HONOLULU — A former Honolulu police chief, his deputy city prosecutor wife, and current and former officers conspired to frame the couple's relative for stealing a mailbox to discredit him in a family financial dispute, according to an indictment released Friday after a U.S. investigation into department-wide corruption. Louis Kealoha, who retired earlier this year, and four former and current officers misused resources from a special police unit to intimidate the uncle of Katherine Kealoha, the indictment said.

Goretzka scores again as Schalke beats Mainz in Bundesliga

Oct 20, 2017

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany — Leon Goretzka scored again to lead Schalke to a 2-0 win over Mainz and fourth place in the Bundesliga on Friday.

Deputies: Man had arsenal, note promising 'bloody revenge'

Oct 20, 2017

DUNEDIN, Fla. — Sheriff's deputies conducting a child porn raid on a Florida home Wednesday found an arsenal of guns and explosives and a homemade silencer, along with a note promising "bloody revenge." Investigators found the weapons — including an AK-47 assault rifle, a 50-caliber pistol, a baseball bat with nails jutting out and 2,300 rounds of ammunition — in a locked closet in the Dunedin, Florida, home where 24-year-old Randall Drake lived with his parents, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said. During a news conference on Thursday night, Gaultieri said that even more "troubling" is that investigators found aerial...

Breaking tradition, former presidents sparring with Trump

Oct 20, 2017

WASHINGTON — Former presidents are shedding a traditional reluctance to criticize their successors, unleashing pointed attacks on the Trump White House and the commander in chief — but without mentioning him by name. Remarks on the same day by former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama raise the prospect that more dissenters will follow in defiance of President Donald Trump and his policies. "What they are doing is laying down a marker for acceptable public discourse," said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, a professor of political communication and rhetorical theory at the University of Pennsylvania. "They're saying, 'We don't stand for...

AP FACT CHECK: Kelly distorts congresswoman's actions

Oct 20, 2017

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — President Donald Trump's chief of staff distorted the facts when he accused a "selfish" Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson of grandstanding at a building dedication in the memory of two slain FBI agents in 2015. John Kelly said she stunned the audience at the somber ceremony by recounting how she had been the driving force behind raising money for the building, the FBI's South Florida headquarters. But a video of her remarks at the dedication shows she never took credit for getting the government to come up with the money for the project. Indeed, the building was...
