No website is too big or too small to be at risk for getting hacked. That’s why it is essential that you should have an SSL Certificate for your website.
An SSL certificate is also known as a Secure Sockets Layer, and simply put, it creates an encrypted connection between your visitor’s browser and the server. These certificates range from $60-$80 dollars, depending on what your web host charges. Adding an SSL certificate to your website is inexpensive, and it allows your visitors to browse, purchase products, and share information with you through a safe connection.
While an SSL is not required for a non-ecommerce website, there are many benefits to it that go beyond the added security for your visitors. For example, as of this month, Google Chrome now marks websites as “Not Secure” if it is not protected with an SSL certificate. Having your website be marked as “Not Secure” can have a negative effect on your SEO rankings, and ultimately could cause you to lose out on business. This alarms your visitors who may not understand how this works, and they will leave your site just as soon as they got there.
