    SSL is used for encrypting sensitive data such as ecommerce transactions. Do you need SSL? What is the purpose of your website?

    Interesting question. Frankly speaking, SSL gives a certain prestige over other sites but that's all it does.

    For your site, it shouldn't be required unless there's transactions involved such as payment gateways or classified information.

    You can purchase it but first compare its price with the other SSL provider, its better to go for the cheaper one

    If you're not building an eCommerce website, then you don't need it at all, it will only slow your website's loading speed, If you're only collecting Email addresses from your visitors, then you don't need encryption or SSL
