SSL security is becoming a must-have for all websites. At Zibster, we are approaching the final stages of implementing sitewide SSL, which represents a big upgrade for your site security and scalability.
With the implementation of universal SSL across your entire website (including forms, marketing, communications, and proofing galleries), your online presence will be more secure, agile, and positioned to grow well into the future with enhanced technologies supporting your business!
Here is a breakdown of what is coming:
SSL Fast Facts
Time: Full implementation is on track to be completed by mid-November.
Price:There is no additional cost for SSL security.
Procedure: New Zibster Builder users will be able to easily enable SSL through the control panel.
Timeline and details
Thanks to many months of planning and preparation by our development teams, we have nearly completed the testing that is necessary before implementing SSL. After we clear the final tests in the coming weeks, we will be able to begin implementing SSL encryption on our customer’s live websites. Barring any unforeseen challenges, we expect this upgrade to take place in early November.
Once SSL is available, you will be able to “turn on” SSL very simply in your control panel. Before turning on SSL, you may want to check that any third-party embedded widgets will function correctly using HTTPS or reconfigure your sitemap in Google Search Console to recognize the new HTTPS version of your website.
