Install Free SSL on your Site and Migrate it to https
SSL certificates provide secure and encrypted communications between a website and an internet browser. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a web browser. Installing SSL on your web server/website will be good for you because it secures and encrypts the connection between your site and the user accessing it. Recently Google also came with a statement that they will reward the sites having SSL certificates or https protocol. Means that the ranking of the websites having https protocol will get a boost in SERP.
SSL certificates are very expensive, even $100 for some hosts, so the best idea is to use a free SSL certificate from a third-party site. These certificates are totally free of cost and don't have any issue. There are many methods of installing SSL on your site. Choose the one you wish me to set up for your site or server.
#1- Using Let's Encrypt on Cpanel- This will be the best method for installing SSL on your web server but it can't be done on some shared hosts like asmallorange and Hostagator. It is usually done using SSH access.
#2- Using Cloudflare- This is another good method for installing SSL. The great thing is that you get a lifetime free SSL which you don't need to renew.
