WordPress SSL/HTTPS Setup Service

For the past few years, Google has taken steps to create a more secure web, favouring those with HTTPS over those without:

For the past several years, we’ve moved toward a more secure web by strongly advocating that sites adopt HTTPS encryption. And within the last year, we’ve also helped users understand that HTTP sites are not secure by gradually marking a larger subset of HTTP pages as “not secure”. Beginning in July 2018 with the release of Chrome 68, Chrome will mark all HTTP sites as “not secure”  - Google Security Blog

Example of 'Not Secure' banner that displays on your site if there's no SSL/https after July 2018

 

So, post-July 2018 (ie. now), if your site does not have an SSL certificate correctly installed and display ‘https’ in the URL bar, your site will be labelled as insecure to all visitors.

Having 'Not Secure' on the site is obviously a security issue, and it does impact SEO. But it will also have a negative impact on brand perception and trustworthiness by your customers.

Quite a few of my clients have had this problem, so I have a service now to address it.

If you’d like me to address so you have the security certificate installed on the site and it displays ‘Secure’ with the green padlock (see image below), let me know and we’ll fix it asap for you.

 

What’s included in the service?

  • Check/Install SSL Certificate On Your Server

    We will do an extensive check of the SSL certificate that is installed on your server and verify it setup correctly. We will also provide you with expiration date info which many miss and can cause your site to go down.

    If you don’t have an SSL certificate installed on your server, we will install a free open source SSL Certificate for you from ​Let’s Encrypt​.
