We have waited and analysed our website performance before migrating our website to a secure web server.
In the past this can impact your website performance as your website needs to be decoded at the clients computer.
However as technology advances, smartphones and computers are becoming ever more powerful. The slight drop in performance, more than makes up for your secure website browsing on public internet connections ie free WiFi.
From an SEO perspective, Google considers site security to be a ranking signal and will favour websites with HTTPS. Although it is currently only a ‘lightweight’ ranking signal and will therefore only affect a very small number of search queries, we expect this to evolve.
All our new websites can offer this new facility upon request as part of our quotation.
