It depends on who you talk to. Some say it's inevitable that all sites should be SSL'ed. I, on the other hand, don't subscribe to that notion - at least not in today's online world.

Some swear SSL gives you a ranking boost. To me, all I've read is that "it might" help with ranking. Which tells me, if it even does help, it would be minor, at best.

Some say the sky is falling too. And some actually believe it.

thanks for the reply. have spoke to my web host who has enabled SSL for free so decided to go ahead with it. no harm if it's free and the job is now done. i'm told any user data such as that like an address given through our quote form should be SSL so will see if any benefits.

glad it was so easy. they ticked the box. we changed the htaccess file and voila. done
