What are the risks of not using SSL?
There are risks involved in not using SSL on any website. Once a customer visits your website, they can make up their minds to buy from you or not from the information they see. And if they don’t trust you and your website, they won’t shop from you. That is why many major companies, retailers, and sites like eBay use SSL. Their customers trust them. Your customers should trust you, too, if you want them to trust you. You want to give them a reason to trust you.
Does my website need to use SSL?
If you want to build a website that is completely secure, yes, you absolutely need to use SSL. Your website could have no encryption on it and your customers wouldn’t be able to see that. And if they could see that, they would never buy from you, ever. And, if they didn’t see that, they wouldn’t trust you. Your customers need to see that your website is secure to have them trust you. So the more secure you make your website, the more that they will trust you.
Is there a fee for SSL on my website?
There is no charge for your website to have SSL. It’s just something that you want to have on your website if you want to keep your customers happy. It’s good for your business, good for your customers, good for you.
