Godaddy just called and they said one needs to really get the SSL certificates for your sites that don't have them. Do you all agree..??

And is there a better price our there than Godaddy who you trust and is good? Thanks

hokay...

Does your site do ecommerce? have users log in? otherwise handle secure info?

Going to move to developer, as this is about web hosting.

If you are not handling user data, you can probably still get away without it for a while. Although most websites are switching to https because google wants it. You could look for a host that offers https cert for free. Dreamhost includes it with the 6.95/mo plan.
