Website security - https

Chrome marking all HTTP sites as 'not secure'

Published on 24th July 2018

The latest version of Google Chrome (v68) has started to display a warning to anyone browsing a website that is using HTTP instead of HTTPS, showing that website as being 'not secure'.

HTTPS encryption protects the connection between your browser and the website you are visiting, to make sure that no one can interfere with the traffic or spy on what you are browsing. Without that encryption, someone with access to your router or internet connection provider could intercept information sent to websites or even inject malware into otherwise clean web pages. Basically, the difference is like sending some information on a postcard which can be read and altered by anyone having access to it (HTTP) and putting the information in a sealed envelope  (HTTPS).

The 'S' in HTTPS is added when the domain makes use of a SSL certificate which encrypts the connection so that it cannot be read by a third party.

Google has published more information on the subject at 

If you are a client of Besthost and would like to have a SSL certificate installed for your hosting account, please go to or open a support ticket.
