HSTS implementation : For increasing website security!

Looking forward to accomplish HSTS implementation? Here’s how we do it. 

HSTS is abbreviated as HTTP Strict Transport Security which is a web security policy mechanism. This helps to protect websites against protocol downgrade attacks and cookie hijacking.

At Bobcares, we often get requests from our customers to implement HSTS as part of our Server Management Services.

Today, let’s get into the details on how our Support Engineers implement HSTS for ensuring website security


What is HSTS and HSTS implementation?

HSTS is HTTP Strict Transport Security. It always compel web browsers to only use secure HTTPS connections for all future requests when communicating with the website.

This helps to improve website security. Also, it prevents SSL protocol attacks, SSL stripping, cookie hijacking, and other attempts to circumvent SSL protection.

HSTS automatically redirect any assets (images, CSS, javascript) that are referenced in the HTML generated by the user’s website to be called via https:// rather than HTTP:/.

If the website is being protected by Strict Transport Security presents an invalid SSL certificate. As a result, the browser removes the ability for a visitor to override the certificate warning, preventing access to the website.

Let’s now see how our Support Engineers help our customers to enable HSTS.


How we secure the website via HSTS

At Bobcares, where we have more than a decade of expertise in managing servers, we see many customers requested to implement HSTS.

Now, let’s see how our Support Engineers enable it.

Frequently, many customers approach us to implement the HSTS to the website for securing the site.

Initially, we logged in to the server which is hosting the website.

We then added the following code in the .htaccess file of the domain which has an SSL certificate.
