Google says you now need an SSL Certificate on your Website!

ssl certificate and security on your website

Google made an announcement regarding SSL certificates on websites

What does this mean?
In a nutshell, if your website does not have a secure cert, Google will mark it as 'not secure'. This will apply to all websites whether they sell online or not. So if your website has a contact form or any kind of form where a visitor will enter information you'll need an SSL certificate installed in your website.

What is SSL? 
SSL encrypts the connection between the website and the visitor. It allows the visitors connection to be private.

You may be thinking, this doesn't apply to me. I don’t take credit cards and I do not have an E-Commerce website

Do you have a contact form on your website? If the answer is yes, then you need to get an SSL Certificate. Otherwise with Google’s changes, warnings will be displayed on your website in the Chrome browser and also it will hurt your SEO ranking.
