Do I need SSL for my website?

Hey, I'm creating a very simple website for my business. I won't sell anything online, there won't be a login feature, do I still need a SSL certificate? I don't think that anyone would bother hacking my website.


  • I advice all website owners to have an SSL certificate, even though it is not a e-commerce website. SSL provides protection against Man-in-the-middle attacks and improves your website's SEO. Additionaly, Chrome marks the websites that doesn't own a SSL certificate as "Not safe". You can get a free SSL certificate with Let's Encrypt.
