We are going full HTTPS

| News & Knowledge | No Comments

In order to meet the requirement in this competitive digital age, we finally decide to go full https on our website. Some of you might wonder, why do we need that? are you telling me the previous code is not secure? or will this affect anything on our side ?. Allow me to answer these questions.

HTTPS (also called HTTP over TLS, HTTP over SSL, and HTTP Secure) is a protocol for secure communication over a computer network which is widely used on the Internet. HTTPS consists of communication over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) within a connection encrypted by Transport Layer Security or its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer. The main motivation for HTTPS is authentication of the visited website and protection of the privacy and integrity of the exchanged data.

Now that quotes from all knowing Wikipedia should satisfy the first question. The main idea is to increase our website security. We don’t want any impostor claiming to be us, or some weird ads popping up in our client’s website. Besides, having secure certificate will create a piece of mind right ?

Are you telling me the previous code we gave is not secure ?

Nope, it is secure. Our IT team dedicated their time to make sure our server secure. In fact we already use https for our back end server long time ago. We just couldn’t decide whether our clients need it or not since most of the doesn’t use https anyway. But now, we decide it is a must.

Will this affect anything to client website ?

Apart from the increase security and peace of mind, there is nothing else worth to mention. It doesn’t change our super fast server. Our virtual tours will still mesmerizing like it supposed to be.

Okay, what we as your clients should do ?

Just wait for our emails. Our IT team will help the process and it will only take 5 minutes in the process.
