HTTPS Images

Recommended Posts



bidorbuy will be moving to HTTPS to improve online security and boost rankings in Google. Webmasters are encouraged to get SSL certificates for their websites. In June 2017, tradefeeds that provide non-HTTPS references and Bulk-Uploaders where 3rd party non-HTTPS image links are used will be disabled.



What is SSL?



SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between the website and the browser. SSL allows for sensitive information such as credit card number and login credentials to be transmitted securely.Normally, information sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text, leaving you vulnerable to online attackers.


As a result of making use of SSL, websites making use of HTTPS will be given a boost in rankings on Google. Thus, webmasters are encouraged to implement security certificates in order to provide the best user experience possible and retain search rankings on Google.



How do I get an SSL certificate?


You will need a certificate from a Certificate Authority in order to enable HTTPS on your website. We recommend making use of Let’s Encrypt. It is a free, automated and open Certificate Authority.
