Is Your Website Secure?
Do you know whether your site has SSL?
There are a few ways to tell whether your website (or any website) has SSL.
If you don’t use Google Chrome:
All you have to do is look at a website’s URL once you’ve entered it into the URL bar. Does it contain “https://” with that added “s,” or does it contain “http://” without an “s”? Websites that have SSL contain that extra “s.” You can also enter any URL into this SSL Checker from HubSpot and it’ll tell you whether it’s secure without having to actually visit that site.

You can click on the padlock to read more about the website and the company that provided the SSL certificate.
Using one of the methods above, go ahead and check to see if your business’ website is secure.
