SSL Everywhere
If your hotel's website is hosted by OpenHotel, then your entire website is covered by an SSL. What is an SSL and why is this important.
An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. Simply put this encrypts the data connection between the hotel's website and your website visitors and in your admin area.

In 2017 Google and Firefox and Chrome began flagging all websites that were not covered by SSL. Can you imagine your potential hotel guests going to a website and receiving a huge warning that the site was not secure? There went that reservation! Also, Google has announced that it will begin taking in HTTPS as a factor in ranking your website.

With the OpenHotel SSL Everywhere policy, you won't experience any warnings, your visitors will have a better experience, and it can even give you an advantage over your competition.
