Reason #1 : NO Flexibility, Ownership or Ability to Negotiate Price With PIGO Multimedia you get priority customer support. And the website you paid for is owned by you.

With this upcoming change in Chrome, Google makes it clear that the web of the future should all be encrypted, and all sites should be served over HTTPS, which is essentially a secure layer on top of the usual HTTP web protocol.

Currently, Chrome displays only an icon of a white page when the website you’re accessing is not secured with HTTPS, a green locked padlock when ...
