I was in search for free SSL certificate and hours of watching some video and combining together what I learn, I came to a conclusion and solution. I therefore like to share this with you in case you were one of those looking for Free SSL Certificate for your WordPress blog.
WHY WEBSITE OWNER NEEDS SSL CERTIFICATE?
An SSL Certificate is important to our website. A must have specially when we are selling products online. Because credit card information on the internet can be passed from computer to computer like our password, username and credit card number and soon.
Without having an SSL certificate encrypted to our website – other may think it is unsafe even to browse or read our blog post.
Did you ever read a RED TEXT ON THE ADDRESS BAR if you check your own WordPress blog site?
Yes, you are right, I was shocked when I see mine says.. “NOT SECURE”.
I came to learn then that Google implemented that every website must be encrypted with SSL.
It is also much more reliable if your website has that PODLOCK SIGN on the address bar.
I hope you are able to watch the video.
