How to Force SSL

Video Tutorial:


Forcing SSL means any requests to HTTP are redirected to HTTPS. This is generally a good thing: Google prefers HTTPS for search, Chrome will display a “Not Secure” message when accessing HTTP, and scripts and features such as payment processing require your pages to be as secure as possible.

If your domain has SSL enabled, you can switch it on or off in the Domains section:

  1. In the Dashboard, click Account. Then, click Domains in the left hand menu.
  2. Next to the domain you want to edit, click More.
  3. Click the Redirect tab. Choose Force SSL from the dropdown menu.
  4. Click Update.
