Quite new to the whole HTTPS business. So I have a (very noobish) question about the whole secure hosting thing.
Basically, I’m about to set up a special directory to host project files for clients; something like http://clients.mysite.com/. Now these project files can differ in filesize from 3kB to 800MB. The domain could end up exchanging sensitive data with my clients in the future too.
Would it be wise to choose secure hosting for this domain? I hear stories about slower connection speeds and performance issues when using secure hosting, hence my question.
Personally, I always found https:// to look rather professional and trustworthy. Which is of course something I want clients to expect from me. However, if it delivers more problems than it delivers benefits, then of course the choice is obvious.
Many thanks to all those who are willing to help me!
