If you're not already securing your site with TLS/SSL, now is the time to do it. The process is simple, fast and automated, so there is no excuse to expose your visitors to an unencrypted version of your site. With a certificate in place, you protect your visitor's privacy, and help make the Internet a safer place for us all.
