I received an email yesterday afternoon from GoDaddy that reminded me I have two websites that I’ve not transitioned to HTTPS.
In the last few years, there has been an uptick in the number of websites that have transitioned from HTTP to strictly HTTPS.

It was a simple oversight that could happen. In fact, this oversight is likely to happen to us or someone we know operating a company as some point.
Just due to the shear nature of the business I’m in, search marketing and domain investing and consulting, I see more often than most.
In truth, it’s an everyday experience that is as normal as breathing for me to encounter as I sift through daily lists of expired domains in auction.
And so, what is this “it” that I speak of that is supposedly the most simple, yet costly process for businesses to overlook? Continue reading
