SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the backbone of our secure Internet and it protects your sensitive information as it travels across the world’s computer networks. SSL is essential for protecting your website, even if it doesn’t handle sensitive information like credit cards. It provides privacy, critical security and data integrity for both your website and your users’ personal information.
When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This protects it from hackers and identity thieves.
Google has announced that by the end of 2017 it will flag all unencrypted sites as not secure in the URL bar along with a red triangle warning symbol. This will make all website users aware that the site is not secure and will also impact your websites ranking on Google. Google also plans to make users more aware of a lack of SSL with more obvious notifications to website users moving forward.

This ensures that your visitors don’t get any security warnings when visiting your pages and that your website is fully secure.
