Having an SSL Certificate on your website is no longer optional, it’s a must have. Put simply, for the following reasons;
- Google imposes ranking reductions on sites without an SSL
- Data between the user and website can be intercepted and is un-secure
- From July Google will warn users that the site they are visiting is UNSAFE, if it does not have an SSL
Over the past 3 years Google has taken various steps to encourage all website owners to own an SSL. This latest step represents the most serious measure so far.
Take a look at our SSL video below which explains the technology.
