SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and how it works
Every internet user has an idea about HTTP:// and https://prefix. Difference between both is alphabet ‘S’. It is just an alphabet, you may think, but it makes the huge impact on Internet security. HTTP:// prefix depict that it is a non-secure website whereas https:// implies a secure connection. It is also known as SSL (Secure Socket Layer). ‘S’ alphabet ensures that the data going to and from your webpage or website is automatically encrypted. This encrypted data is in an unreadable form, which saves it from being manipulated but any other third party before reaching its destination.
If your website is secured with SSL, it will provide a sense of confidence toyour customer while sharing their personal information with you over the net. This will not only earn your customer’s loyalty but also help you gain new customers. ‘The more confident the customer feels, the more business you will get’, this is how it works. Now if you are worried to get a new website for your business and think about how much it’s going to cost you, let me give you a good news. You do not need a new website. All you need to do is install SSL certificate and set up URL (to redirect all HTTP:// links to https://).
Need of SSL for your restaurant
Let us discuss this point wise:
It builds customer trust: As discussed, https:// prefix gives the sense of security to the internet user. Itis normal to collect your customer’s information for the record but it is far moreimportant to make the customer comfortable with sharing his/her personal details. In case if you have not secured your restaurant website with SSL, on opening your webpage, a warning message will trigger about non-secure connection/page. In such a situation, there are high chances that the customer will leave the page and search for a secure website rather. You will lose a customer for sure but the ranking of your business will also be affected, no matter how good your services are and how tasty your food is.
