Great news! Today Google has officially announced that using HTTPS (HyperText Transfer Protocol) is a must-have for websites.
Why HTTPS Matters for SEO
In addition to an SEO-friendly website structure, unique content, quality internal and external links and site speed optimization, establishing HTTPS with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) now also increases your site’s search engine ranking.
We are happy to announce that you are now able to purchase SSL certificates using Bitcoin on SSLs.com
Our Bitcoin capability is powered by Stripe, one of the world’s most progressive and frictionless payment processors. SSLs.com is the first SSL shop to take advantage of Stripe’s support for Bitcoin payments. Bitcoin is one of the most widely used virtual currency based on a peer-to-peer payment network that does not exist in physical form, as it is not affiliated to any financial institutions or governments and controlled by all Bitcoin users.
Hacking is an epidemic. In 2013, Twitter, Facebook, Adobe, Target and NBC were all the victims of high-profile security breaches – and they weren't alone.
It’s estimated that 30,000 websites are hacked every single day, ranging from small company blogs to social media behemoths. However, hacking wasn’t always the premise of criminals seeking to defraud companies. Hacking originally emerged in the 50s and 60s, and the earliest hacks were typically shortcuts invented to bypass or improve computer systems.
