SSL is NOT Enough for HTTPS
This is a common misconception I hear almost every day. Site owners get a notice that their host has issued a free SSL certificate for their site. And then they wonder why their site is not suddenly HTTPS.
Were it that easy!!!!!
There’s WAY more to it. And you need to be super duper extra careful about how you get your site converted.
That 1-click easy way the host offers is crap! Trust me!
I’ve drawn the line on helping clean up that mess too.
In this case, free can be one of the most expensive mistakes you make with your site.
I’ll have a post out soon for it.
WPTavern has a nice post on this huge news. Definitely worth reading for more details, well, as much as we have of them.
One huge point in all this is that GoDaddy does not allow full security measures on their hosting. They are not the only host where that is so either.
You can see more about that in THE hosting benchmark tests from Kevin Ohashi. He has been doing these for years, and is the main person I go to for advice about hosting.
Here’s the big takeaway.
More hosts are suddenly partnering with security services.
That should tell you something – pay attention!!!!!!!
I got my own sites on a paid WAF (Web Application Firewall) with the paid version of CloudFlare.
Sure, it’s an extra cost. I’m not any happier about it than you are.
But think of it like car insurance. It’s just something you have to have, just like you have to pay for a domain and hosting.
See yesterday’s Tips Tuesday for Google’s #NoHack Report on the severe increase in hacked sites in 2016 and how that trend is only going to increase.
Today I’m checking into all-inclusive solutions that me and Matt Mullenweg (co founder of WP) discussed in our recent chat. Some of them are very affordable.
But, there is no doubt that you WILL need to make a change to how your site is secured. It’s not IF your site is in danger of being hacked. It’s WHEN will it happen.
A site security and performance audit can help plug all those security holes and get your site running fast.
