What is the impact of not have a secure (HTTPS) Homestead website? I am not running Storefront. I do have some PayPal buttons integrated on the website. Should I be converting my website to HTTPS? I am using SiteBuilder Plus.
When search engines crawl your website, it will note that there is not a SSL and may give customers a caution before proceeding. Sites that collect customer information with a form or allow online sales are extremely important to be SSL protected, but websites that do not offer these options should still be secured, as it would not be penalized by search engines if a SSL is present. We do have a guide how to SSL your website with Sitebuilder Plus website and Cloudflare, but please also know that our newer WebsiteBuilder editor allows websites created to be SSL protected automatically provided.
Thank you, Todd, for taking the time to respond. Question...will converting a website to SSL protected result in all URLs being changed. For example, if a URL was www.centerforhumanawakening.com, would converting to website to SSL protected change that URL? I realize the http would change to https...but any other changes?
