All websites must move to HTTPS: Hereís the reasons why
« on: April 09, 2017, 09:11:15 AM »
The World Wide Web is a great place to be, but itís not always safe due to hackers and attackers. Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) powers most websites today, but thatís no longer good enough. The requirement is Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS), but as it stands, webmasters are not moving quick enough to adopt the more secure protocol.

The design of HTTPS was all about securing websites that deal with money. For example, if your back [bank] has its own website, and from there itís possible to check your balance and do transactions, it needs to run on a secure protocol.

Now, due to the problems the web is facing, every website will need to move over from the regular HTTP to HTTPS in the near future. The reason itís taking so long is due to the cost of having HTTPS attached to each website.

On top of the cost of hosting, SEO impact and other key elements to having a web page up and running, HTTPS is just another added price tag.
