Site Updated with HTTPS Protocol

Your webmaster has just relocated the site to new hosting Siteground.com) and along with that we are now using the Google-encouraged HTTPS protocol. What is important about this?

As initiative to make a web more secure, on September 8, 2016 Google announced that Chrome would start to explicitly label HTTP connections as “Not Secure”. The idea is that then you know the information is going over the internet unencrypted.

Beginning in January 2017, Chrome marked HTTP pages (meaning pages without an SLL certificate) that collect passwords or credit cards as non-secure, as part of a long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure. Going forward this will become much more explicit with any sites lacking an SSL certificate labelled “NOT SECURE”.

Eventually all sites without SSL certificates will also have the explicit labeling. No doubt this will have a profound impact on user experience. No one wants to go to a site labelled not secure.

In a nutshell, HTTPS provide more trust and security to the website.
