Is your school website secure?
If your school website begins with http:// you should know about Secure Sockets Layer. Perhaps you have noticed that a lot of sites you visit now start with https:// and you may have noticed a padlock symbol. So what does that extra ‘s’ mean?
The extra ‘s’ means your connection to that website is secure and encrypted, so any data you enter is safely shared with that website. The technology that powers that little ‘s’ is called SSL, which stands for Secure Sockets Layer. You will particularly come across https:// sites when you were browsing websites that require giving over sensitive information such as paying bills online.
SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remain private.
This is vitally important if your website has a form as it means that when a user completes the form and presses submit it will be sent over a secure, encrypted connection.
If your school website is insecure and uses http rather than https then you really need to speak to your web host. You may not be aware that we offer very competitive web hosting starting at just £125 a year which includes WordPress and of course secure SSL so that parents and other visitors to your site will be protected.
