NARSA Rolls Out HTTPS Makes Website More Secure

We’re happy to announce that we’re rolling out HTTPS for the NARSA website!

What is HTTPS?

HTTPS is an extension of HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) which is used to secure Internet connections.

What are the benefits of this change?

Connections to your NARSA website will be more secure. Starting in July, the Google Chrome browser will complain that HTTP sites are “Not Secure”. This update will ensure that all browsers, including Chrome, will see your NARSA site as secure and will lend confidence to site visitors. In Google search rankings, sites that offer secure connections are preferred over sites that do not. Website traffic will be routed through CloudFlare, a Content Delivery Network (CDN), which means the NARSA website will load faster.

This change will take place in June, early July. With the Internet moving towards HTTPS as the standard, we are making this change as part of our ongoing product improvement cadence.

No action is required on your part. The NARSA team is taking care of these updates on your behalf.
