Announcing SSL protection for all Yola users

Web security is more important than ever. With this in mind, The Yola Team is excited to announce our newest feature: SSL Protection for all users.

What is SSL protection and why does it matter?

SSL establishes an encrypted link between a web server and a browser, ensuring that all data transferred remains private. It allows you to protect site visitors’ data from monitoring and tampering while they browse your website, purchase products and fill out contact forms.

While site security is a huge proponent of SSL, the additional benefits come two-fold:

Customer trust: In having an SSL certificate, the domain name of your business website will display with “HTTPS” rather than “HTTP” as well as a lock icon. This gives your customers peace of mind while browsing your website. It also shows that you value their security, boosting your credibility.

Search engine ranking: The Yola Team isn’t the only one aiming for a secure web. Google released an algorithm which gives secure sites an additional boost in search engine rankings.

How do I add SSL protection to my website?

We find site security so important, we’ve enabled them for all of our users with Yola domains and sub-domains. And we’ve made activation simple:

Within Yola Sitebuilder, navigate to Settings > Publishing. From there, click the switch to “Enable SSL.”

*Note, users with sub-domains can choose to Enable SSL or “Include www Prefix.” Users with a custom domain name have no restrictions.

And with one click, your site is secure.
