With Google's announcement that HTTPS is now a ranking measure, everyone is compelled to change over. But what are the real benefits? Read our detailed article here -

1. Does your site really need HTTPS?

2. Introduction • Secure form of HTTP • All data to and from your website will be encrypted • Indicated by the lock symbol on the address bar

3. Why HTTPS? Login Protection • Until now, HTTPS was usually restricted to parts of a site that involved financial transactions like credit card payment • Growing popularity of WordPress has resulted in a steep increase on the attacks • Attackers always looking to crack your login credentials • With regular HTTP in place, user information is exchanged in clear text • Can easily be snooped by third party • With HTTPS enabled, login information is encrypted

4. Why HTTPS? Prevents intercepting of data • Data can be tampered with during transit • End users will be completely unaware • Attackers can easily modify the status code to error even if the connection went through successfully - DoS attack Better SEO rankings • Google uses HTTPS as a ranking measure • Enabling HTTPS will lead to better rankings

5. Conclusion • HTTPS makes your site more secure • Login is protected and so is the data to and from your site • Sites should not only be fast but also secure
