A common misconception is when people tend to relate 'trust' to having an SSL certificate.

A rogue website can also have an SSL certificate, even more so now that almost all providers have free SSL certificates. You shouldn't trust an SSL-powered website just because the SSL is valid. It only means your communication with the server serving the website is encrypted. It doesn't mean it's generally safe.

The misconception is only a new thing since Lets encrypt and AutoSSL started with the free SSL certs.

Before free SSLs scammers etc. would not pay to secure their sites, so had no encryption protections with SSL certs.

According to a study done by Pew Research Center, more than 68% of users of the internet strongly feel that there are inadequate laws for the purpose of protecting their privacy. It is because of the increasing need for online security the reason why Google adopted far-reaching measures for making the internet safer. One such measure adopted by the search engine giant is by making SSL certification an essential business/website ranking factor.

Here is more details on it <URL snipped>

Hey!

Good question!

SSL becomes extreme important especially for large eCommerce Websites for the secure transaction and data transfer, however, for small as well as medium sized business website too, it's importance is equivalent. Also, Google search engine ranking is also greatly depends on the secured site. You can discover some best hosting provider that offers free SSL certificate around the market. Good luck with that!

No Matter what size of business or website you have , if you take people details or take payments then you need an SSL Certificate.
I would never recommend a free SSL cert if you are running a business. It a business cannot afford $10 a year for a paid SSL then you don't have much of a business and you don't care about your customers details

An SSL Certificate is vital if you do or do not accept payments as google and many other search engines now make it a requirement so you can be highly ranked on google

As a hosting company a basic SSL should not be a worry, you can get recognised ones from under $30/year or high identity ones for around $150, considering as a host your starting budget should be looking to be at least $1000 to be able to cover for startup costs, marketing, etc

If you want to see your website in Google you definitely have to ensure that SSL is presenting on your website.
Believe me, I'm telling it from my experience.

No that's not what happens, if your site does not have an SSL cert then anyone visiting the site will get a 'This site is not secure' message.

Google and Firefox are just giving priority indexing to sites with an SSL cert.

you need to do research, this is well documented across the internet and why cpanel introduced AutoSSL and why Lets encrypt started.

here are just a few going back to 2017

Yes it is correct and doing so is beneficial for websites as SSL:
1. Kick out hackers
2. Boost Ranking
3. Secure payments
4. Strong encryption to secure information
