Without HTTPS a hacker can change information on the page to gather personal information from your site visitors. For example, they could steal login information and passwords from users. HTTPS essentially tells your website visitors that they’re interacting with the safe website and nothing else can alter or intercept the content they’re viewing.
Furthermore, security measure are improved even more by combining your HTTPS with an SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate. This is required for ecommerce websites since users are submitting sensitive information like credit card numbers, names, and addresses. SSL certificate is often a service offered by hosting provider. It is important to set up SSL certificate correctly.
