Free SSL - Using https To View your Site

All hosting accounts at WiserHosting include a free SSL certifictate for your hosted domains (URL) provided by Let's Encypt, which allows visitors to your site to view your web pages via a 256 bit SSL encrypted connection. In other words they can view your website using https://www.yourdomain.com instead of the standard un-encrypted http://www.yourdomain.com. This is useful for any area of your site which handles sensitive data e.g. login areas, contact details etc. and has also become a requirement by most web browser software in order to avoid the 'Not Secure' label appearing beside the web address (URL). When the https:// address is used it displays the padlock icon in web browser applications such as FireFox, Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer etc. indicating the page is secured.
