While the short answer for many websites is a no, there are time when you need to look into investing in the fifty bucks or so it costs year to get a certified SSL for your website.
Here are some examples when it is a good idea to turn your website, into a secure website.
The number one concern of anyone who is shopping online is always security. Whilst most websites make use of third party payment processors to handle the security of payments, rendering a SSL certificate redundant for this purpose, it does help with buyer confidence. If a potential buyer can see that the connection to a website is a secure one and also that it has been secured by an third party, then it helps in allowing that buyer to trust your site.
Email providers have increased trust to your domain
If you are having issues with people receiving your emails it may not be an issue with the server where your emails are hosted but instead it could be an issue with Internet Service Providers trusting your IP or domain with sending email through an unsecured connection. SSL opens up new ports to send mail through and ISP’s trust your emails accounts resulting in slightly more reliable email service.
A trusted domain name
If you care about the integrity of your domain and want it trusted by all sources then a SSL certificate is the way to go.
