In the past, Facebook has allowed users to link fan pages with external websites hosted on other servers without SSL. Due to the need for more security, facebook has now introduced https or SSL for all communication between your facebook application, fanpages and other sites. Starting October 1 2011, SSL will be required for all facebook connections. Users who do not have SSL installed on their hosting plan where the facebook pages are hosted will get an error.

This means, after this date, if you have not installed SSL on the site hosting your facebook custom fan page, the users will not be able to access it without a warning. Many users will definitely be put off by such security warning. To move forward you will need to get yourself SSL installation.
