While going thru my design archives I ran across this fun t-shirt I did for Streamline Fire Protection. This design was for their annual fishing trip to Mexico. Utilizing entirely royalty free clip art I was able to turn this design around for them in a matter of hours so we could it to the printer.
If you find yourself looking for a t-shirt design, remember Michael Winchester Design. I have quick turn around on jobs and also have a great relationship with a local screen printer. We can ensure you get the best deal and a quality product.Contact Michael
Because of scoundrels and con-men Google is asking for HTTPS compliance. HTTPS stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure and is the secure version of HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol), the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The ‘S’ at the end of HTTP stands for ‘Secure’.
All this means is that communications between your browser and the website you are viewing is encrypted. This is especially needed on e commerce websites where credit card and other personal data is sent between the browser and the web server. You achieve this layer of security by purchasing and installing and SSL Certificate. For now we will concentrate on the HTTPS aspect of the protocol.
Most noteworthy is the indicator that Google is using to distinguish between so called “safe” and “unsafe” webpages. A green lock is secure, and a grey lock with a red slash is not.
Not Secure Example
What does this mean in regards your website? Well, because when someone visits your site their browser may display the dreaded lock icon with a red slash thru it (examples above) representing your unsecure connection. Because HTTP was not intended for online activities like shopping, making payments, and transferring personal data, the entire web is now moving towards the secure standard. Google is even making HTTP unattractive by penalizing websites for using it. Google plans to flag websites that don’t use HTTPS wants to prioritize websites that use HTTPS in their search results. As a result, this is a strong incentive for webmasters to migrate to the HTTPS standard.
Consequently Michael Winchester Design is well versed in the setup and maintenance of HTTPS. Contact him today and learn more about how cheap and easy HTTPS can be to implement. We can have your website running the Secure Protocol within the week.
