Ensuring Secure Pages 301 Redirect to HTTPS

Ensuring Website Security and Setting Up 301 Redirects from HTTP to HTTPS

For Shopify:

Shopify automatically provides SSL certificates for all its stores, ensuring that your website is secure. To verify this, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Shopify admin panel.
  2. Go to Online Store > Domains.
  3. Ensure that your primary domain shows a lock icon, indicating that SSL is active.

Shopify also automatically sets up 301 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS, so no additional action is required on your part.

For WooCommerce (WordPress):

To secure your WooCommerce store and set up 301 redirects from HTTP to HTTPS, follow these steps:

  1. Install an SSL certificate on your hosting account. Many hosting providers offer free SSL certificates via Let’s Encrypt.
  2. Log in to your WordPress admin panel.
  3. Go to Settings > General.
  4. Update the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to use https:// instead of http://.
  5. Install and activate the Really Simple SSL plugin to handle the 301 redirects automatically.

After completing these steps, your WooCommerce store will be secure, and all traffic will be redirected from HTTP to HTTPS.
