Google will start inserting a “not secure” label. This can be found in the address bar of every website that uses HTTP connections between its servers and users.

This move from Google could potentially affect your business. Imagine a customer seeing a message saying “This website is not secure” they wouldn’t feel confident enough passing over their card details to your website. You could be losing customers!
Migrating from HTTP to HTTPS can be quite a task. We advise making the switch as soon as possible. If you’re considering a new website an SSL should be setup from day one to make sure your website is safe. SSL implementation is not a complex or costly process. Your website developer should be able to work with your hosting provider to sort this out.
