SSL these days is a must have.  Once you install an SSL onto your site, you and your visitors are able to access the site securely.  You and your visitors will know you have an SSL as they will see the https:// in the URL bar.  The SSL allows your website to be accessed over HTTPS – This encrypts the data sent between your site and your visitors computer.

Since around 2014 SSL has been a tool used by Google in their algorithms that help determine what SEO score your site should receive.  Google is also no publicly identifying non HTTPS sites.

Implementing a SSL certificate is quite simple with Blue Ocean Web Hosting and in the vast majority of cases, it is issued and installed automatically once purchased from our website.  If in doubt, your account manager will help you if you get stuck.
