New Secure Website program, a service designed to provide secure hosting for law firms.
Allentown, PA, April 4, 2017 (Newswire.com) - BusinessCreator, Inc./dba ForLawFirmsOnly, an established leader in digital marketing for attorneys, today announced the launch of a new Secure Website program, a service designed to provide secure hosting for law firms.
According to BusinessCreator, Inc./dba ForLawFirmsOnly President Edward Kundahl, the Secure Website service will be available for purchase immediately and will be available by calling 855-943-8736 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
"Google Is Shaming Your Website And Telling Your Visitors Not To Trust You," said Kundahl. "Google wants to make the Internet safer, and it won't be shy about pointing fingers at sites that don't meet its standards."
In an announcement published to the Google Security Blog on September 8, 2016 and updated on 12/5/16, the search giant said users of its Chrome browser will be warned when accessing non-secure websites, starting January 2017.
Guess what? Firefox and Internet Explorer are also warning site visitors as well.
Users won't be blocked from accessing non-secure sites, but they will be alerted when visiting an address that doesn't use an encrypted connection.
Websites with a "HTTPS" added before the URL indicate an added level of security to normal web browsing, compared to visiting a non-secure "HTTP" connection. This guarantees users are reaching the website they intend to visit, and the extra security protects them against hackers.
"When you load a website over HTTP, someone else on the network can look at or modify the site before it gets to you," Google explained in the statement.
Kundahl continued, “We have spent the last year developing a low cost, highly secure technology for WordPress sites with the goal of ensuring our WordPress clients have a secure site. Our program will provide 100% Google compliance for WordPress sites and html sites. Don't let your site get "slapped" by Google's "Not Secure" warning. You won't need to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars yearly on SSL certificates and labor costs to install the SSL. Visitors will trust your site and that leads to increased conversions.”
Kundahl continued, “You need to ask yourself, how secure is my website? 51% of websites were hacked via a security issue. You don't want to be banned by Google when it detects malaware on your site. However, it takes more than an SSL to be secure. Our secure hosting program adds 57 layers to secure you website. Your website content can be permanently deleted from the search engines when you get hacked. Hackers can inject viruses or other malware into your website, saddling you with expensive and time-consuming cleanup tasks, not to mention the stress of having your website down. Google can ban your website forever. Hackers can steal your contacts and shower them with spam. Whether your website has 100's or 1,000's of subscribers, a hacker will have access to all of them with just a few click of a mouse button.”
“How much would you lose if your law firm website shut down RIGHT NOW? It is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity to secure your site and incidentally increase your Google rankings (remember, Google wants secure sites-which we believe is a ranking factor or soon will be). An added benefit and cost savings come from a greater ROI from you marketing dollars.”
“The vast majority of law firm websites that I’ve looked at lately did not have an SSL certificate installed. So why should you? Clearly you are not required to have one, so why does it matter? Most firms probably don’t have an SSL certificate for one of several reasons. They may not even know what SSL is, They may not know the benefits of having an SSL certificate, SSL certificates will increase the costs of having a website, law firm websites are mostly non-transactional in nature (most law firms do not conduct e-commerce or accept credit cards through their websites, and encrypting these types of transactions is more of a necessity).”
“However, despite those factors, there are some very good reasons why you should consider purchasing an SSL certificate to secure your website. Here are the three biggest ones: Protecting client data from hackers. A common way that hackers steal data is during transmission. When someone fills out a form on a website, their data moves from the browser on their device to the web server via an http or https request. Hackers have been known to set up scripts or other programs to intercept the data along the way. With SSL, the data is encrypted during transmission, meaning it is not decipherable to a human. So even if a hacker did manage to steal it, they could not get any useful information from it that was comprehensible. As an attorney, you owe a duty to protect the confidentiality of your clients’ personal information. Even if there is not yet an attorney-client relationship established, information submitted via a website contact form is likely to be sensitive and something that the prospective client would like to keep private. Therefore, utilizing SSL to protect this data during submission on your website is a wise decision, even if not technically required, and it sets the appropriate tone for the relationship moving forward. Improving SEO rankings. As you may know about law firm SEO, there are a many factors that impact how well your website performs in Google search results. Everything from your domain name, to the content on the pages, to the website structure, to the number of inbound links, to the page load speed and much more is incorporated into Google’s algorithms to determine which websites should show up first on the list of search results. According to a study of the 10,000 biggest domains on the internet, using SSL is one of the factors Google uses in its search algorithm, and it has been shown to favor secure websites over their insecure counterparts. The presence of an SSL certificate is probably not as important as things like the actual content on your website, which is a much stronger indicator of relevancy to a search query. But it’s a factor to consider nonetheless, and another reason why you should consider purchasing an SSL certificate for your law firm website. Establishing trustworthiness. Having a high quality, well-designed law firm website is key for creating a good first impression. So, perhaps the biggest reason why you should secure your site with an SSL certificate is to create a sense of trust with prospective clients when they find you online.”
“It may be subtle, and some people may not even notice it, but a little detail like seeing the word “Secure” at the top of the web browser can really create a perception of trustworthiness. It makes you look more reliable and gives people reassurance about submitting their contact information to your site. As you know, trust is probably the single most important aspect of a relationship with a potential client that leads them to hire you. They are facing a scary, complicated, or difficult situation, and they need help from an expert. They surely won’t hire you if they don’t trust you, so you should strive to do anything possible to create trust. Having a secure website is one small factor in a prospective client’s overall perception of you and your law firm, but it’s just another thing can help establish trust, and therefore it’s a wise move that is worth the cost in our opinion.”
“Our Secure Website program includes hosting on the Amazon cloud with nightly backups. It is a low cost program that saves law firms the high annual cost of purchasing and installing an SSL. We do all the work for you and securely host your site for a small setup fee and small monthly hosting fee. Attorneys need to ask what the consequences are for not securing their website,” concluded Kundahl.
