Tammy’s Tech Tip!
Do you have a purchased domain you use for your website?
If not, please read the small print
Website security has had many changes over the past year and one of those changes has been moving to more secure sites, with SSL security. You may have noticed that instead of seeing the old standard url in the address bar of a website starting with “http://” most now start with “https://” The added “s” designating a more secure site. Thankfully Placester websites have taken the step along with most others to upgrade to the use of the added layer of security.
How does this affect you? Previously you could go to your KW Placester website by typing in the traditional “www” prior to the domain name. Now, you cannot. For example, my KW Placester website is by default tammybunk.kw.com. If I type in a browser address bar http://www.tammybunk.kw.com I will get an error/security alert. If I type in tammybunk.kw.com in the address bar, this will work and will access my website.
With this new information, you need to make sure your business cards and advertising are not putting the “www” in front of your domain, if you are using only the standard default website url that is given to you. If you are using the default domain given to you, you would put on your advertising either one of these options:
“https://yourinfo.kw.com” or “yourinfo.kw.com”
The best solution is to purchase your own domain. This is the best option for several reasons. It is not required; however, it provides these benefits:
- No confusion about the security
- It will work with or without the “www”
- It is yours and can point to any website you desire now or in the future
- It is a low-cost way to start to brand yourself
Many people use GoDaddy or Google and there are many options available to you that are $12 or less per year. I have no preference on the companies to choose from, however I do think it is a valuable addition to your business for a low cost.
If you purchase a domain, and need assistance connecting it to your website, let me know at TammyBunk@kw.com
