Official HTTPS feature for Custom Domain in Blogger Platform

Formerly HTTPS was used on few websites that contains very sensitive information. But now more and more sites are switching to HTTPS because it becomes easier to switch. Do you want to provide secured connections to your visitors then switch to HTTPS? 

HTTPS is an edition of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol for secure communication over a computer network, and is widely used on websites. Through HTTPS connection an encrypt information can be send between a browser and web server. This is protecting any website and blog users from miscellaneous online attack. 


Earlier Blogger platform users were unable to use HTTPS on custom domain and this was a great regret for them but now Blogger has made this feature available for Blogger blogs with custom domain users. However all blogger hosted domain (like bloggerspice.blogspot.com) has got this facility couple of months ago and custom domain users were waiting for long time for using HTTPS feature that provides secured communication. But not this is the most pleasing time for blogger platform users with custom domain, because now they will able to activate HTTPS feature on blogger platform. 

We know HTTP site is not secured and in the past massively used it in all non-secured blogs and websites. When you visit a non-https site then it will display a warning message like below: 

“Your connection to this site is not private. Information you submit could be viewed by others (like passwords, messages, credit cards, etc.).” 

But after activating https on a site it will become more secured and your site will be treated as trusted site in the digital world. 


Benefits of HTTPS 

There are several benefits for activating HTTPS in your website but among them there are 7 (Seven) main benefits to using HTTPS instead of HTTP to access your blog and websites. Such as- 

  • Your Blog or website visitors will open the correct website and from your site your visitors aren’t being redirected to a malicious site. 
  • It will help to identify the hacker if they try to change any data from Blogger and sent to the visitor. 
  • HTTPS will add extra security measures which will make it harder for other people to listen to your visitors’ conversations, track their activities, or steal their any information. 
  • Search engine will favor your Blog or website with HTTPS. So your site will get priority over HTTP sites. 
  • It will increase the Google ranking because of secured connection. 
  • HTTPS will improve the security of your site. 
  • It will increase the Increase the Customer Confidence in e-commerce site. Because they can provide their credit card password without any fear. 
So there are many benefits of using HTTPS instead of HTTP for both blogger and visitors. I hope you have already got a clear idea.
