WordPress and Non-SSL Site Concerns

On  December 1, 2016, Matt Mullenweg (developer of WordPress) announced that WordPress is pushing for greater security measures for wordpress sites.

WordPress will also be limiting critical features (such as API authentication) to only those websites that have implemented an SSL Certificate.

It only makes sense to implement SSL immediately so you can have the greatest possible advantage available to you as you compete for customers.

WordPress has also stopped promoting all their hosting partners unless they automatically issue an SSL Certificate to all their users by default.
