when i have a Website at siteground which is hosted on Google Cloud in the Netherlands and i want to connect it to google sql. Do i need to encrypt the connection? Because the connection should only be within the google datacenter without going outside. I look forward to your response.


Yes. This is called defense in depth. These days it costs nothing to have an encrypted database connection (in terms of monetary $, in terms of setup time, in terms of latency or bandwidth - all of them are irrelevant on modern systems).
