SSL Certificates

Protect Your Website

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates have been available for use for over 20 years. SSL aims to provide privacy and data integrity between two or more communicating computer applications. Having an SSL certificate ensures that any sensitive data from a website’s visitor will be transferred over a secure network.

In the past, the price and difficult implementation prevented many organizations from getting an SSL certificate. Today, cheaper options and simpler installation methods have made the process much easier. At Beyond Spots & Dots, we feel it is important that your website be as up-to-date and secure as possible. 

Therefore, we will work with your organization in the purchasing of an SSL certificate in the following ways:

  1. Research preferred vendors
  2. Purchase SSL certificate
  3. Install change on the web server
  4. Renew SSL certificate prior to expiration date

Any HTTP site accessed via Google Chrome is now marked “Not Secure.”


  • Increased Site Security:
    SSL certificates protect the sensitive data transmitted from and to your website. Specific encryptions within the connection will help protect data from being obtained by attackers.
  • Customer Trust:
    Having an SSL certificate will enable your website to display a security padlock in the address bar of the browser. This added feature helps to gain visitors’ trust and show that your take their privacy seriously.
  • Faster Site Performance:
    An SSL certificate migrates your site to HTTPS, which runs faster and performs better than traditional HTTP. It also blocks ISPs from injecting ads on your website.

  • Google has announced that it will give your site a ranking boost if you have adopted an SSL certificate. This was done in an effort to keep everyone safe on the web and encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS.
  • Based on their test results, Google has determined that the HTTPS signal showed positive results in terms of relevancy and ranking in Google’s search results.
  • With this added boost, having an SSL certificate will give you an advantage over your competitors who don’t have certificates yet.
