Not long ago, Google told webmasters to upgrade their websites from HTTP to HTTPS, and Google already incorporates HTTPS as one of the signal in its algorithm. In order to protect the privacy of users, and increasing security of the web, Chrome browser now also has the corresponding measure. If after July of this year, the webpage still does not have HTTPS, a warning signal will appear, informing the user that the website is not safe, and it is recommended that the user do not browse such a website. So how to deal with it? Before I explain into details, let me tell you waht does HTTPS mean:

HTTP vs HTTPS

Normally, web server will send content to and receive data from users (such as email forms) through the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). And HTTPs basically adds a security layer on top of the HTTP existing framework, which encrypts the web page and the user’s channel before sending or receiving data. The advantage is to prevent third parties from intercepting data and malicious attacks. To use HTTPS, the web domain must first have a valid SSL security certificate installed and configured on the web server to be used.

Install a free SSL security certificate on the server

Many web hosting companies in the market provide SSL security certificates, but in general, you need to pay for them, but there is a free SSL security certificate called Let’s Encrypt on the market. Let’s encrypt was born because of the cost of having a security certificate is somewhat expensive. Therefore one group launched Let’s Encrypt to make the web more secure and provides a SSL certificate for free. To install the security certificate on the server, generally require some IT knowledge. Therefore, I do not intend to list in detail here, if readers are interested, you are welcomed to leave a message, leave enough words, it will write relevant knowledge to the reader for reference.
