    If you sell products? Probably. If you’re taking credit card payments directly on your website, you definitely need SSL in place to encrypt your customers’ credit card information. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need it on your entire site; you might decide to use SSL only on store or checkout pages, for instance. If you use PayPal exclusively to accept payments, you don’t need SSL since customers aren’t paying you directly.If you offer memberships?

    If a website doesn't collect sensitive data, like credit cards or social security numbers, hen there is no need of an SSL certificate. However, with the new browser notices, it's now important to ensure every website has an SSL certificate and is loaded via HTTPS.

    This certificate is not necessary to install, but Google gives priority to https sites.

    Hello Jennifer,

    Before answering your question, let us understand what is SSL.

    Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypts the connection between your website and your users so that a 3rd person cannot eavesdrop on the sensitive information being passed between your site and your users.

    What is this information? It could be sensitive payment information like credit cards or bank account details etc. It could also be user information like username and password.

    So if your site is into monetary transactions (i.e. if you're selling something), you should definitely install SSL on your site.

    But if your site is only an information site that does not deal in online transactions, you may skip installing SSL.

    Hi guys, I'm new here too. Do I need install an SSL certificate to make my website look 'not spammy'? I wanted my website to look professional for my fencing business.

    If your site does not have original content, engages in fraudulent activities, the presence of an SSL certificate will not add to it a positive reputation. Do not forget to renew the certificate before the expiration date host-tracker.com/Blog/Domain_ssl So you definitely do not lose positions in the search results.
