In today’s issue, we are going to talk about website security. While I won't go too in depth with technical details, I want to discuss two major bases you need covered.

  1. SSL certificate
  2. Website backups

These two play a major role in the success of your website.

🔖 SSL certificate

The SSL certificate is a way for the web browser to verify your website is safe. It’s a connection that happens when the browser hits your website.

If you don’t have an SSL certificate, your browser gets flagged as being dangerous. One of the primary goals of every website is to build credibility. When you don’t have an SSL certificate, you are giving your potential customer a reason not to trust you. This is harmful for your brand, and that first impression has now left a negative taste in their mouth.

To convert more website visitors into customers, you must leave a postive first impression.

🛡️ Website backups

While you don’t plan for your website to go down, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Backing up regularly helps to ensure that your website can be restored if something goes wrong. This is one of the reasons I use Webflow. Webflow performs automatic backups on every 50th auto-save, ensuring that you will never lose changes made to your website.

Don’t forget to have backups in place in case of an emergency.

🔑 Summary

There are many tips to ensure your website is secure, but these are the two most important ones. If you are unsure if your website is taking regular backups or if you have an SSL certificate, reply to this email.

It would be my pleasure to help make sure your website is protected and secure.

To recap:

  • Your website needs an SSL certificate
  • It’s important to have regular backups of your website
