When to use SSL?

Post by Magical » Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:58 pm

Greetings,

Best practice question - when is it necessary to use SSL? If I have a one page site with a contact form should I secure that page with SSL? Or is that overkill? I agree that an ecommerce site should be secure with SSL.

Do you guys use SSL for everything?

you do not always need ssl even if you have an ecommerce website; of course, in the case you delegate the payment process to an external processor like PayPal (because they manage all the stuff)
if you store sensitive (or financial) information about your customers (like a bank does) you should have ssl...
it depends mainly on which information you handle and how (via an own processor or an external one)
