In the past, small businesses hardly needed to worry about website security and SSL certificates. It was only needed if a websites stored customer information or accepted payments, such as eCommerce websites (online stores).
But now, Google and other web browsers are making a push to get all website owners to comply and be “secure.”
Web browsers like Google Chrome scare users with “Not Secure” at the top, embarrassing website owners into buying SSL certificates.
SSLs cost $50-$120/year. Many hosting companies charge more to “install” SSLs, bringing it to $150-$300/year. Some of our hosting plans include the SSL, free of charge. Call anytime to host with us.
