Google secures its users and has recently switched more services to https://. After Gmail and Picasa Web Albums, encrypted connections will work on YouTube.
YouTube already encrypt sensitive data during the account login process. Now the service will expand the SSL encryption across other aspects. The first place users will see the https:// protocol is various embed codes.
Internet giants popularize the encryption around the information traveling between computer and a web server to show that they are aware of the hackers. The most popular services install the SSL certificates to secure its users' sensitive data. About month ago, Facebook switched its service to https:// protocol too.
If you run a online business, you are sure to use Google AdWords. Perhaps this is one of the main traffic sources on your site, so the last message you want to see is "Your account has been suspended ...". And yet, you can expect it if your site is not SSL-secured.
Starting 1st of August 2016, Comodo and DomenySSL will no longer offer SGC variants of certificates. As your account has a valid SGC certificate which will be up for renewal in the future, the company has prepared a list of recommended alternatives.
Thawte is only one of the few vendors outside of the United States. As the main competitor of American vendors quickly gained a 40 % share of the market SSL certificates.
