Will I Lose My Google Ranking If I switch?

Switching web hosting providers will not change your ranking. When we change your domain's DNS by pointing it from one server to our server, there is a proliferation period before the new changes take effect. We would not bring the old website down until you are 100% sure that search engine crawlers are already indexing your website on the new server. Therefore we would migrate your website along with all the content and data to the new server and change the primary domain name's DNS to point to the new server. Once the search engine crawlers are actively indexing the website on the new server, it is safe to bring the old one down.

What is an SSL Certificate and how does it work?

SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization's details. They encrypt sensitive information sent over the Internet ensuring its receipt to the correct destination server. Do I need one for my website? Yes you do. Undoubtedly, Google loves its users and therefore, is coming up with every possible way to make us feel secure here on the internet. Google will flag all the unencrypted internet by the end of 2018 and flag 2/3rd of the web as unsafe. This means if your website doesn't have an SSL certificate, it will display a "Not Secure" in the URL bar.
