I have read somewhere a blog which was saying that SSL is important for all website by JULY 2018. After this your website will not receive authorization from Google in terms of organic ranking. Please keep here you suggestion this topic.

That's correct. Browers are constantly changing how a website is displayed and almost all have moved to requiring SSL certificates.

Eventually having a SSL certificate will be the norm and they will remove the green lock as well so that secure is the standard.

Correct, however most hosts are offering SSL's free included or you can obtain them easily yourself through lets encrypt

which reduce a hosts revenue.

before lets encrypt i was taking £3,000 a year from SSL certs, in the last fiscal year i took £400 from SSL certs as most moved to free SSL certs from lets encrypt.

That is a big loss to a small business

For a hosting company, i think an EV SSL is a must. It's one of the first methods that would bring some trust to your website.

It's good to have EV, but if you cannot get a EV for any reason, hosting providers or any e-commerce site should at least get a paid certificate to gain some trust

It is not an easy process to get an EV SSL cert and a lot of hosting companies would not qualify for an EV SSL cert.

Have you heard about the latest Google security update then? The update says that Google is going to phase out ‘secure’ badge for the HTTPS sites while the HTTP sites will be marked as “Not secure” in red in the address bar.

Yes that's right. It's better to do it. To show to your visitors that your site is trustworthy and to mitigate your site from hackers. And now they are ssl certificate providers, like let's encrypt and comodo. They are quite interesting.

Comodo is one of the oldest CAs.

the new ones are Lets Encrypt and cPanels AutoSSL (which are free, but offer no warranty)

SSL is very important for website security and for both visitor and customer data. SSL Certificates protects your customer personal data such as password, credit card, and identity information. The main benefit of SSL is to transmit a user's personal information using encryption technology so an only expected person can read it. An SSL certificate plays a vital role for every business, particularly after Google declarations about SSL for better Search Ranking.

Let us see the benefits of an SSL Certificate
1 Encrypt sensitive information
2 Authentication to prove your reliability
3 Increase Visitors Trust
4 Enhance PCI Compliance
5 Google search ranking boost
6 Attract more shoppers with HTTPs and Green Padlock

Day by day as Internet Growing cybercriminals are also increasingly active and getting access to personal details like credit cards, security number, bank details, and other people information, so it is important that make your site secure and reliable.
