Since last year, Google has been “urging” developers to add SSL certificates to their websites. An SSL cert creates that little green padlock you see in your browser when you are on Amazon or other sites that ask for your credit card.
This coming July the latest version of Google’s browser Chrome will start flagging any site that doesn’t have an SSL cert.
So it makes sense to get an SSL cert for your site. The bad news is they typically cost $149 year.
The good news is that Google has helped create a “free” cert that we are happy to offer our customers.

SSL Certificates Explained:
SSL certificate delivers protection without pause – with 24/7 control of your website, data and applications – to mitigate risk and ensure uninterrupted performance. First it encrypts the flow of information between your website and the people accessing it. SSL certificates, for example, are required on any site that accepts credit cards. Recently Google has been advocating that all web sites use SSL certificates. Web sites with an SSL certificate are now enjoying a small boost intheir search engine rankings.
