Mostaco.PH is now SSL enabled. SSL is short for Secure Sockets Layers. Simply put, having SSL means that your website is secure. And Mostaco.PH now has SSL! Goodbye HTTP, hello HTTPS!
This is a long time coming. Securing our website was one of our goals for 2017 and with a little help from Kinsta and CloudFlare we were able to install our SSL certificate with ease. Configuring WordPress for SSL is another story. Reading through the forums, we chanced upon 2 plugins which made the transition to HTTPS very easy.
Now with the green padlock and HTTPS
Every time you go to our website, a green padlock icon should now appear on your browser’s address bar. If you are using Google Chrome, aside from the green padlock you should also see a “Secure” identifier in the address bar.
Moreover, instead of HTTP, Mostaco.PH should always display HTTPS. It means that your browsing session is protected and encrypted. You will be glad to know that every information you fill out is encrypted. This applies when you fill out our contact form or checkout from the shop.
What it means for our customers
Securing a website is very important. You always here about phishing and hacking and a lot of people have been victimized. There are a lot of fake websites out there and having SSL gives you the comfort knowing all information you filled out are encrypted. Having SSL also gives our company an advantage in establishing trust with our customers. In the business that we are in, trust is very important. We value our customer’s data, privacy and we want all information to be safe.
This a great step in the right direction for us. Securing our website via SSL and HTTPS, gives our business authenticity and legitimacy. Our customers and future customers can be assured that they are dealing with the right folks!
