Do I need a secure certificate (SSL) on my websites

Short answer, Yes.

SSL certificates are what enable websites to move from HTTP to HTTPS, which is more secure. An SSL certificate is a data file hosted in a website’s origin server. SSL certificates make SSL/TLS encryption possible, and they contain the website’s public key and the website’s identity, along with related information. Devices attempting to communicate with the origin server will reference this file to obtain the public key and verify the server’s identity. The private key is kept secret and secure.

You may have noticed some websites you visit start with HTTPS and others are just HTTP. The extra S means the site is secured by a SSL certificate. At one time this was just something needed for sites with stores selling products or those that collected extra personal information. While that’s still the case, Browsers are Google are starting to make it mandatory. Google will give a slight page boost in the search results for it browsers are doing a pretty good job at making your site look secure and shady if you don’t.  As a matter of fact there are settings in some browsers that are forcing your visit from HTTP to HTTPS and then showing an insecure message if you have not purchased a SSL. Is it really worth not having one?

In a nutshell these certificates show that the website belongs to a verified organization.  Contact us for information on setting your site up with SSL and making it secure.
