I think I may join this group. But I'm worried due to the fact that the website lacks https. Fix this please?

I wouldn't be surprised if organizations websites lacked SSL. Most of our websites like my own (eyesandearsrescue.org) are mostly just informational with minimal user input, aside from a forum and even a blog. Of course, with major players like Googles search engine and its Chrome browser pushing for higher standards, this add-on is being pushed more and more. My host offers a year of free SSL and I've even heard of some companies like Comodo offering a free certificate though I'm not entirely sure if that provides the same certs as paid certificates.

 

As others have said, you can always find them on the community site and join that way as well.

See https://letsencrypt.org (and you can also check caddy proxy which is so easy to setup a transparent HTTPS proxy).

As long as the certificate is recognized by your browser, 99.99% of the visitors won't care if your certificate comes from comodo, symantec, let's encrypt, or whatever (and I actually take let's encrypt more seriously than some "recognized", paying, authorities).
