The best reason to make your site secure is to protect your site visitors; SSL certificates protect the connection between your site and your site visitors. Here are some other reasons:

  1. GeoLocation features require a secure connection.
  2. Accepting Payments? Most gateways like Stripe require that any page hosting a live checkout form be SSL.
  3. Sites without secure connections trigger warnings in some browsers. These warnings can turn your visitors away.
  4. It’s relatively easy to do.
  5. There are lots of pricing options.
