SAGE has added full-site Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) support to its website offerings. SAGE is adding this new security feature at no extra charge to subscribers.

Google and other search engines have begun boosting or promoting sites that have full-site SSL encryption, so having full-site SSL is an important part of optimizing search engine optimization (SEO), says the industry business services company in its news release. In addition, it says some of the most popular browsers will soon start showing warnings for sites that do not have a full-site SSL certificate.

Full-site SSL support is available now for SAGE WebExpress Pro, SAGE Website Professional and SAGE Website Professional Plus. To activate full-site SSL, users should visit and click “WebExpress” in the menu and then click “Access & Security.” After just a few minutes, users can refresh their site and it will be loaded with the SSL padlock in the address bar and fully secure. Complete instructions are provided in the help area for the new option.
