Enabling SSL Certificate - Website Security

Follow

 

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.

 

  Important Note

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.

      Security Warnings

    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.
