Letting SSL certificate lapse

Client feels he no longer needs SSL for his very basic informational Wordpress website. How much of a hassle after letting certificate lapse is it to restore functionality? I used Simple SSL to enable.

Super User IV


1) What platform is the WordPress website on - cPanel / Managed WordPress / other

2) Shutting off Simple SSL just does some rewrites of the HTTP -> HTTPS 


Your bigger issue is that this WILL affect Search Engine visibility as google will push the listings down in the rankings - additional it is very likely that if you have HTTPS links in google that they will now be broken.
