It’s wild, the internet. And your website is connected to all of it. It’s a good thing! It’s also a not-secure thing. Not-secure websites send and receive unencrypted data which can be watched, altered or stolen.

SSL certificates.

When people try to visit a not-secure site, their browsers will warn them: This connection is not secure. It looks bad. It erodes trust. It’s supposed to. Those websites are not guaranteed to be safe. They don’t have an SSL certificate.

An SSL certificate is what gives trusted sites the secure padlock in the address bar. That lock icon is proof to visitors that you care about their data. You look safe, and it’s making the internet safer.

In addition to the secure padlock, an SSL certificate ensures that all data going to and from your site is encrypted so it can’t be altered or misused. But there’s more than one way to disrupt websites.

Website Security and backup.

Luckily, hacks, unexpected downtime and worse can be avoided. Website Security scans your site for malicious activity and alerts you when something (or someone) is attempting to mess with your stuff.

If something does happen, Website Security Express will clean the infected site ASAP. The best thing you can do to protect a secure site is to back it up, daily. With automatic Website Backup, you can set it and forget it, knowing a secure version is at your fingertips when you need it. It’s a safety net.

That’s what adding security to your website is — a safety net, an insurance policy and an investment. Invest in your business, brand, storefront and social gathering place with the complete protection of website security tools. It’s the easiest way to get secure and stay secure.

Online security is a major challenge
with small business owners.
Online Security Challenge

Website security gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list, if it’s considered at all. Unfortunately, that means many small-business sites become easy targets. There’s good news though. It’s no longer as complex, time consuming or expensive as you might think.

GoDaddy Website Security products offer a simple, cost-effective way to protect your assets (aka your data and the sensitive information of your visitors).
