Setup https for galliusiv.com ?

I noticed this website shows "Not secure" at the top of my Chrome Browser (Version 77.0.3865.90), meaning that it only runs on http.

When any of us login, our username and password go out over the internet in plain text, just like this message. It also means all your private messages also show up in the clear, with no encryption to protect it. If we had "https://forums.galliusiv.com" available, all that would actually be private.

The key thing with https is an SSL Certificate. You could ask the website hosting provider to provide an SSL certificate. Or, if that isn't an option, there's some places on the web to get one for free.
