There are many benefits to using HTTPS over HTTP, including:

  • Protect against "man-in-the-middle" attacks and other criminal activity aimed at stealing data from your website
  • Improve the speed of your website by taking advantage of capabilities offered to HTTPs websites (like HTTP/2)
  • Comply with PCI rules requiring sites that obtain credit card information to be secured using the HTTPS protocol
  • Take advantage of the ranking signal boost afforded to secure websites to improve SEO performance
