An SSL certificate encrypts information that is sent between a web server and a browser to protect it from interception. In order to get an SSL certificate on your website, it must be installed on your server by someone with technical experience. Once installed and configured, there will be a green padlock next to the browser’s address bar which provides a sense of trust and safety for your customers. Without an SSL certificate, information is sent in plain text which can be easily intercepted and therefore private data, like credit card numbers and login credentials, are not protected.
Security procedures are constantly evolving as the technologies that hackers use are becoming more intelligent too. We make sure your website is protected to the highest level using a forever-learning Web Application Firewall that protects your website against hacks and attacks. We monitor all activity on your website and will act fast to block suspicious behaviours. In the unlikely event that your website is compromised we provide a full cleanup service to get your website back to full health in no time. That’s not all though, by reducing spam traffic and the benefit of an included content delivery network (CDN), you should notice a big improvement in site speed.
Our learning always on approach when it comes to security means we are never caught off guard.

Yes – most of it. Each website Cariad Marketing creates comes with a CMS (content management system). This means you can edit the text on the pages as often as you like and change things like special offers, photos, prices etc. You will be given full training on the use of the simple CMS (content management system) and this is included in your website package.
