Starting in July, Google Chrome will mark all HTTP sites as “Not Secure”. Chrome currently displays a neutral information icon, but starting with version 68, the browser will warn users with an extra notification in the address bar. Chrome currently marks HTTPS-encrypted sites with a green lock icon and “Secure” sign.  In order secure your site an SSL certificate must be purchased to update to SSL.

Google has been nudging users away from unencrypted sites for years, but this is the most forceful nudge yet. Google search began down-ranking unencrypted sites in 2015.

To ensure Chrome does not dissuade users from visiting your website site, we are offering a one year SSL subscription for only $65 for a single website and $80 for up to 5 websites.  This is an annual subscription and must be renewed each year.  Please let us know which option your business requires and we will begin the security certificate installation.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask one of our engineers to help your business update to SSL.
