If you don't have an SSL certificate on your website, you need to change that.

Once a nice-to-have, SSL certificates are now as necessary as having a URL.
You can not, should not, and will not have a successful website without one.

Althought Google led the way, other browsers are following suit: your site will be penalized severely without the proper security settings in place. Let's go through some of the most commonly asked questions about SSL certificates:
