Website Encryption SSL/TLS Service Google HTTPS Rankings Boost Advisory Launched

Hosted In Canada has launched a new advisory focusing on the importance of secure websites online in today’s climate. Sites that don’t have SSL/TLS are in danger of being left behind.

Calgary, Canada - October 12, 2017 /PressCable/ —

A new security advisory has been launched by Hosted In Canada, the friendly web host that helps people to find their ideal domain. It explains that 97% of sites online are not secure, and that they run the risk of being left behind. Every site working with Hosted in Canada will be secured for free.

More information can be found at: https://www.hostedincanada.com/google-ssl-requirements.

The advisory indicates that there are changes coming to Google’s HTTPS requirements, which will have a big impact on sites around the world. Hosted In Canada explains that HTTP will soon be a thing of the past, and that it’s time for people to start preparing for a totally encrypted web.

According to a February 2016 Netcraft report, only 3% of websites today’s make use of SSL/TLS encryption. This is a basic level of security that every website should have, and is something that every customer working with Hosted In Canada will enjoy.

In an era where 90% of large organizations have been hacked, it’s controversial that so many websites online simply aren’t as secure as they could be. Google is now changing its settings, and websites that don’t feature this kind of encryption are likely to get left behind.

New HTTPS incentives will include warning visitors when they visit a website that doesn’t have SSL/TSL configured. This is to ensure that awareness is spread, and to display more initiative, allowing people to realize when they are landing on a site that has no data security.

As part of the new initiative, Google Chrome will show a red “X” beside the domain name of any site that doesn’t comply. Further to this, Google already gives an SEO rankings boost to sites with SSL/TLS. After its announcement in 2014, it implemented these changes, and the effects are starting to be felt.

Websites with SSL are now experiencing up to 5% more in search visibility simply through their security options. Full details can be found on the URL above, which breaks down a number of other areas pertinent to the issue.

A fire alarm sounds, then gunfire erupts: Stay or flee?

Feb 17, 2018

Students and teachers responded as trained when the fire alarm sounded, streaming out of the school and toward exits only to run into deadly gunfire. Two boys with stolen guns took aim from a wooded hill, waiting for people to evacuate after one of the boys had triggered a false fire alarm. They killed four children and a teacher. That was 20 years ago at Arkansas' Westside Middle School, before active-shooter drills became part of the routine for schools across America. Students today are taught to evacuate during fire alarms but lock down during school shootings. So there was confusion...

Are female-led companies the answer to sexual misconduct?

Feb 17, 2018

NEW YORK — The Weinstein Co. thought it had found a path to survival. A group of investors led by a respected businesswoman offered to acquire the company, rebrand it and install a female-led board of directors. It was an eye-catching idea in a country where men dominate corporate boards in almost every industry. Unmoved, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman threw a wrench in the deal, filing a lawsuit against the company partly out of concern that executives who failed to protect Harvey Weinstein's accusers would continue to run the operation. Swiftly, the Weinstein Co. fired its president and...

Once near death, Tropicana now No. 2 casino in Atlantic City

Feb 17, 2018

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Ten years ago, Atlantic City's Tropicana casino was on the verge of death, having been stripped of its casino license after its then-owners laid off vast swaths of the workforce, leading to filthy rooms, insect infestations, hourlong waits for slot machine payouts and food and drink orders that often never arrived. Now, after years of reinvesting in and renovating the casino floor, hotel rooms and eateries, the Tropicana has become the No. 2 casino in the city in terms of gambling revenue — a position it will need to fight to retain as two additional casinos...

Film showcases historically black colleges and universities

Feb 17, 2018

NEW YORK — Filmmaker Stanley Nelson knew he wanted to tell a story about the nation's historically black colleges and universities — not just about individual HBCUs, many of which have their own celebrated histories, but about what they collectively have meant to black people. And in making the documentary "Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities," Nelson said, something quickly became clear: HBCUs never were just about learning what was in books. From their beginnings in the years after the Civil War, the nation's HBCUs have been driving forces for African-American economic and political...

Even as markets shook, many investors held steady

Feb 17, 2018

NEW YORK — This month's sell-off for stocks marked the first big test of investors' mettle in years. And many ended up doing exactly what the experts were recommending: hold steady. Even as stock markets tumbled around the world, putting a halt to an unusually calm and strong ride upward, many investors resisted the urge to sell in a panic and lock in the losses. Others plugged even more cash into their trading accounts after seeing prices for S&P 500 index funds drop by 10 percent within a couple weeks. At Fidelity's retail brokerage, for example, customers continued to put...
