    Thumbs up Enabling SSL on your Website

    With the new security protocols and requirements the world is seeing now, SSL certificates are becoming more in demand to keep the site secure.

    SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security protocol for creating secured links between a web server and a browser in an online communication. All this means is that any information collect on your website is encrypted nd protected.

    You only need to worry about using this if your website collects private information like credit card payments, email addresses, etc.

    What you first need to do is install an SSL certificate on your website. You can do this through any 3rd party website that installs it or you should be able to get one through your hosting company.

    Once that certificate is installed, you can put this code in your .htaccess file to turn your domain into an https:// instead of a http://

    Here is the code:

    # Force SSL connections
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteRule .* https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [NE,R,L]
