Machine guns firing on fixed lines, Claymore AP charges.. High voltage fences!! and that's just to get into the car park..I am Sorry AB,.....Just couldn't resist...:).. What's the actual answer you are looking for..Are you talking about the security of their servers from cyber attack, the build programme itself, your website, SSL certificates..???   I am sure the techs can give you all the information you need if you ask the right question.

What do you mean by security provisions? I am not sure I understand the question.

Related question, the sites I've maintained through WordPress/SiteGround are https, meaning padlocked secured.  It's been said Google favors these sites in their crawl algorithm.  Does Homestead have plans to give Website Builder & domains https status?

Adding SSL to websites is not a feature that is available, however I will definitely share this concern with development.

Its a good point Todd as AB has said, any web test I run always throws up I don't have an SSL cert, not that I sell through my site or ask for any personal information so I don't see why the website would need one..

It is not required Brian. Google has begun ranking https higher than not https, but this is a very tiny factor in ranking. Google estimates that the ranking affects fewer than 1% of global queries. Basically if all other ranking factors on 2 sites are identical(very rare) then the https will be listed higher than the http. We will keep on watch on this if they decide to make this a more important factor.

Many thanks for the clarification Drew...I have seen a few "advice lines" that I should "Buy" an SSL cert...for the website..I will wait on you and Homestead.
