An SSL certificate is essential for any website, regardless of whether it is handling sensitive data or not. Some of the reasons you may need an SSL certificate on your website include:
- Giving the visitors of your website peace of mind, and making a professional impression.
- Improving sales and conversion rates.
- Ranking higher on Google and other popular search engines.
- Websites without an SSL certificate will display a “Not Secure” warning in popular browsers such as Google Chrome, potentially decreasing trust and discouraging visitors from making purchases.
Silvercode Website Hosting already includes unlimited SSL certificates. If your website is hosted with us, you usually do not need to purchase a separate SSL certificate (unless there is a very specific reason for it).
