Site configured to use SSL

We configured another WordPress site for SSL this week. Free Auto-SSL certificate available on our server, plus a full set of updates for proper configuration.
This is one of our smaller recent projects - November 10, 2018

It’s a good practice to ensure that all of your website users exchange information securely with your website. A properly configured SSL certificate can secure both the back end and front end of your website from prying eyes.

Green padlock and address bar showing the website is secureWhen configuring WordPress sites to use SSL, it’s not a simple case of changing the url in the settings section of your dashboard to use https:// instead of http://. To do the job properly, you also need to change all http:// references in the database, make sure that all http:// requests are automatically forwarded to https:// pages, enable strict hypertext transfer, add https:// versions of your website properties to Google Search Console, upload new XML files… the list goes on.

We were delighted to do this work for another one of our clients this week! As an added benefit, their website is now able to use the http/2 protocol (making it even faster than it already was!).

If you need to get your site secured by using an SSL certificate, we can help you right now.
