Increasingly the standard for websites is to have secure hosting (so you’ll see a little green padlock in the browser bar and the website will start with https not http.

The padlock appears in your address bar when you visit a secure website. You can quickly find out if the connection to the website you are viewing is encrypted, and in some cases who owns the website. This should help you avoid malicious websites that are trying to obtain your personal information.

Google are also starting to mark insecure websites as unsafe – and I believe reward websites that are running https within their search rankings.

So do it now, if you don’t see the green padlock on your website just ask, it’s not a time consuming job these days and you generally don’t need to pay annual fees any more.
