How to Set Up SSL
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser: it makes your sites secure, and protects your prospects’ details.
Convertri will automatically set up SSL for Convertri subdomains, but you may need to enable it if you have a custom domain. Here’s how to check:
- In the Dashboard, click on Account, then Domains in the left-hand menu.
- On your list of sites, under each site name should be a security message. Convertri subdomains should automatically display a green padlock icon labelled Active and Secure. (If they don’t, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.)
- If you have a custom domain, it may display a grey unlocked padlock with an Run Checks Again button. If you've set everything up, click this button. If Convertri finds a problem with your nameservers, you'll see an error message. Click here to make sure you've set everything up correctly. Once SSL is enabled on your site, the grey padlock icon will change to green.
- If your custom domain is ready to go out of the box, it will display a grey unlocked padlock with an Enable SSL button. To enable SSL, click this button. A message will ask you if you’re sure. Click OK, and SSL will be enabled on your site and the grey padlock icon will change to green.
When your site is secure, you will be able to see a security message next to your URL in the address bar when you visit your site.
NOTE: Convertri publishes both http and https versions of your page. If SSL is enabled but you see ‘not secure’ in the address bar, make sure you’re viewing the https page.
Also, your https page will show as ‘not secure’ if you’re using any non-secured http elements, such as scripts or iframes. We recommend only using https.
