I am finally doing a little reading on all this grat computer stuff.I was reading about secure and safe sites,etc. Well,I learned a secure site always uses https instead of http.Viruses ca get in any site wuth just http. So im just wondering why all web sites dont use these features?I mean,does it cost more, more work,what?MyLot doesnt use it,and you would thik site would want to keep everyone safe if they could. Now, as you all know,I am not at all smart when it comes to computers, so if it is something simple,dont laugh at me!!LOL!!

I don't think it is necessary for all websites to be secure. By being secure it means that they encrypt their information. I can see where this makes sense on sites that deal with financials (like credit cards, banks, and even paypal). However, there are a lot of sites that aren't dealing with something like this and the time to program the encryptment and the cost involved with it wouldn't be cost beneficial to them. That is the reason that I believe not all sites are secure.

Not every website needs to be secured with an incription code. Websites that hold sencitive information often not meant for public eyes such as finical information, need to be a bit more secured then say a public site that people can explore. The only pages that contain information that may require incription and encoding are the log-in page, and your settings page where you have your adress and other information. And, those are only visable when a user is logged in. Plus mylot also has a "public computer" option when logging in so cookies and session information isn't stored. Its deleted when the browser is closed.
