SSL encryption is a crucial security feature we provide for every community website—whether free or paid. Don't let others fool you into believing SSL is optional, a personal preference, or should cost extra. Without SSL, your members' personal details, passwords, and private information are not safe. It's why major website browsers have started issuing warnings for websites without SSL.

Not providing SSL is reckless, yet we're still one of the only community website providers to protect every website 100% with SSL encryption, completely free. And we've been doing it for years.

Plus, we don't stop there. We use a modern technique called HSTS to instruct browsers to never access the website without SSL encryption. This protects against even highly sophisticated attacks.

You can verify that your connection to a website is encrypted with SSL by checking if the URL contains "https://" instead of "http://" (note the 's').

Benefits of SSL encryption

SSL encrypts all data traveling between users and our platform. This prevents people and organizations from viewing data while it's in transit, something that even a novice attacker can easily do.
