With the ever increasing focus on web security, SSL certificates have started to become common practice when setting up websites. This article will show you how to implement SSL into your WordPress website but won't go into details of how to buy and set up certificates with your web host, as this changes from provider to provider. That said, most web hosts sell and install web hosts for the clients for a relatively small fee. To make any of the changes described in this article you will need to already have an SSL certificate configured on your web server.
There's no such thing as being "too secure". SSL is now easier and more affordable than ever to implement. If you have an e-commerce website or are processing any user data then it's essential. SSL isn't just for e-commerce websites either - absolutely any website can use it.
