SSL?

The easy answer is to use a certificate from Let's Encrypt - 
certificates are free, on-rev can enable them and will renew them 
automatically.

All you need to do is send an email to on-rev support and they will set 
it up for you (though obviously, this is the holidays so they may take a 
little while :-)

Here's a clip of an email I got from David while I was requesting it ...

One example I have is https://kilmelford.com

Probably not relevant for you Tim, but it is possible, and advisable, to 
redirect all non-https URLs into the secure versions - though I have yet 
to do it myself.
A good guide - just ignore the hostM-specific parts - can be found at
