Enabling the SSL certificate for your website is an important process to provide a secure browsing experience to your visitors. SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer, which is an encryption method used to protect the information that will be sent through your website.
SSL certificates, in general, are used to secure online transactions, logins, and personal information. When you first create your website, SSL will need to be enabled for the first time.
This process is critical to get your merchant account approved, so you are able to collect payments from your clients. We invite you to enable this feature by following the steps outlined below.

To start, make sure you have the following:
Accessing the Site Builder
- Go to the login page for My Credit Repair Site
- Enter your email and password and click Login

- Click on Edit Site in the top right corner
- Welcome to the Site Builder!
Enabling SSL for your Website
- Click on Settings at the top
- Under SSL click on Enable
- Click on Publish at the top right corner
Doing this will push all your changes to your live website. Before publishing, we do recommend previewing all pages to make sure that they are set up as you want. Every time you want to push changes to your live website, remember to hit the Publish button inside your Sitebuilder!
You will see security warnings on your site when you first publish it. Don't freak out. This is normal. It will take up to 24 hours (after you publish) for the Free SSL to be installed. After that, the security warnings will disappear.
