Why Free and Startup accounts has no SSL feature?
There is a simple reason behind limitation of SSL feature by several paid accounts and not to including it into free and Startup accounts at the moments. OpenWeatherMap service is really high loading ones processes dozen of thousands requests per second. Providing SSL for each request will increase loading to the servers significantly and as a result we will not be able to process so many requests in a neat way that we are currently doing.
