Online security continues to escalate in importance, and for website owners, the onus is on you.

It’s an unfortunate fact of the internet, that attackers are constantly snooping for important information such as form submissions, shop orders, and, well, pretty much everything that happens on your website. Adding layers of protection is key to safeguard you and your customers.

One popular method commonly used by e-commerce websites is to encrypt the messages sent between the web site (where it lives on the hosting server) and the users’ web browser. A layer of protection known as ‘HTTPS’, or ‘SSL’*. When this method is in place, users will see the padlock icon in the web browser, providing reassurance and confidence in using the website.

SSL is often considered to be expensive and complicated to set up, but at Lingo we’ll take care of it for you providing you with the tools to secure your website.

It all starts when you get in touch

 

*Bust the jargon: HTTPS stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Security. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. TSL is for Transport Layer Security. They are abbreviations most commonly by server engineers and website developers.
