In January 2017, browsers will begin flagging non-secure sites that accept passwords or payment information with a security alert - informing people that their data is not protected as part of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure.
Site owners who want to avoid having their HTTP sites labelled as non-secure have roughly three months to secure their sites.
Sign up or upgrade your account to one of our cPanel + SSL Hosting Plans. All our new hosting plans include one-click SSL to enable as many SSL certificates as you need for all of your domains and subdomains individually. More Information.
Ultimately, all non-https websites will include a ‘Not Secure’ alert in the browser that will:
- Erode user satisfaction and trust
- Reduce search engine ranking value
- Undermine website performance and ROI

If you have any questions or need help to upgrading your account, please reach out and let us know.
