Ensuring Your Website is HTTPS Secure

Ensure Your Shopify Website is HTTPS Secure

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

  1. Log in to your Shopify admin panel.
  2. Go to Online Store > Domains.
  3. Check the status of your primary domain. It should display a lock icon and say “SSL Enabled.”

If the SSL is not enabled, contact Shopify support for assistance.

Ensure Your WooCommerce Website is HTTPS Secure

For WooCommerce, you need to install an SSL certificate manually. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Purchase an SSL certificate from your hosting provider or a third-party service.
  2. Install the SSL certificate on your server. This process varies depending on your hosting provider, so refer to their documentation.
  3. Log in to your WordPress admin panel.
  4. Go to Settings > General.
  5. Update the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to use https:// instead of http://.
  6. Save the changes.
  7. Install and activate the Really Simple SSL plugin to automatically configure your site to use HTTPS.

After completing these steps, your WooCommerce store should be HTTPS secure.
