1. SSL certificate can protect the sensitive information from the hacker attack. HTTPS makes your website safe and secured.
2. HTTPS is one of the reference factors of Google ranking algorithms. So all websites need it.

I would like to answer the question SSL/TLS secures the connection channel between the web browser and website/web server using certificate files including encryption code. This secures personal and business data submitted to a website cannot be suspended on the network by a third-party.

It has always been important especially in the ecommerce market but got extremely popular since google make it a requirement.

Now, almost every website owner is aware of it and the benefits.

Many experts in the industry are suggesting that it will impact the user’s trust, when Chrome leaves a sign “Unsecure connection” on your website that can impact in sales, advertisement clicks, and more.

Yeah I heard this more times but didn't know why it's important for ecommerce website, is it more secured and trustworthy under customers' eyes?
The idea is that, if you have an SSL Certificate, you would be able to process payments through your website. I, personally, believe that this is a stupid idea, and is why PayPal and Stripe, for example, exist.

SSL is an end-to-end web encryption method that protects websites and customers from such attacks as man-in-the-middle attacks that could result in customers credit card information being stolen. It is a requirement of any payment processor to have a SSL certificate in place on your website.
SSL is important to stop Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) attacks. Not just for payment reasons. Under Ye Olde Unencrypted HTTP, a potential attacker could well insert ads, or worse... into your website and cause problems. SSL, and HTTPS, stop this from occuring.

Is free SSL consider the same as the paid...?
Largely, yes. The prime requirement of an SSL is that it is trusted by the browser. An Extended-Validation certificate (which until recently, displayed the name of the company that had purchased it in the address bar) was seen as a necessity for banks and payment providers. Again, if you're not processing payments (and, you really shouldn't be), then a free SSL will do you fine.

HTTPS affects your ranking with Google SE. It will give you some boost so you will be ranked higher.
Also, if you want to create PWA (Progressive Web Application), as I did for my website, you need your wbsite to use HTTPS.

Firstly - confidentiality, secondly - more trust in the site, and finally - better results in search engines.

Websites need SSL certificates to keep user data secure. And also SSL is essential for protecting your website, even if it doesn't handle sensitive information like credit cards or debit cards.

SSL will secure your website from hackers and also make user's data safe. Also SSL makes websites more trust-able for users and all the traffic encrypted in https.

Security is something that we should all take seriously. In the real world, we can change our locks, get better more secure ones. The options are endless and there is always going to be a better and more secure one depending on your needs and specific circumstances.

In the online world, there are many security issues to worry about and companies are always looking for better ways to assure their potential users that their information is safe when interacting with them. After all, the world of transactions is a 2-way street requiring some level of trust, assurance, and socially distant handshaking.

This is where the Transport Layer Security (TLS), most commonly referred to by its older term – Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

Why do you need an SSL/TLS Certificate?
We can all agree that there are many bad actors masquerading as otherwise on the World Wide Web. Their main aim is to get a hold of your personal information any way they can. One of the ways they achieve this is to intercept the communication between the browser and an unsecured site. With the right SSL/TLS certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority (CA), you ensure a secure internet connection by encrypting the data sent between the browser and an SSL/TLS secured website.

Data security, an added credentials for users who organically reach your website... and if you're going to make money out of your website, it's an added layer of... well, security for you (e.g. peace of mind basically).
