The Importance of HTTPS for Your Website
Many people think that if your website doesn’t handle sensitive communications, you don’t need to have it secured with HTTPS – this is false! Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is necessary for protecting your users and the integrity of your website regardless of its purpose. It has also become a requirement in many web browsers.
Web powerhouses like Google, Facebook, and Mozilla have sent a strong message out to the world by offering for free SSL certificates with the organization Lets Encrypt. Since then, Google made it even harder for sites without HTTPS to work and be found online.
Depending on your skillset, you may need to hire a pro to get your site’s HTTPS working correctly. We’ve touched on a few important points below that explain why it’s worth the effort.
