Hovershotz move website to HTTPS secure SSL server

By | UK Drone Legalities, Uncategorised | No Comments

In preparation for some significant upgrades and enhancements to our website, Hovershotz aerial photography video and inspections Cumbria, have migrated our website to a secure SSL server and implemented a https version of our site. This will be necessary when we implement a live booking system and a stock image and video shop to allow clients to purchase stock footage directly from our website. Quite simply, all data on our website is encrypted, protecting our clients data.

We have chosen to implement SLL now, due to the fact that our contact form requires customers to enter data and with the introduction of by Google of Chrome 62 in October 2017, it will be mandatory to implement HTPPS  for our contact form to avoid falling foul new requirements, which would have resulted in our old http site showing up as not secure.

One unexpected benefit, is our website is significantly faster since implementing SSL, which enriches our visitors web experience while using our site.

The move went without hitch but it may take some time for Google to reindex our new HTTPS pages.
