So where are you in converting your WordPress site to SSL. Have you had a conversation with your ISP to see what you need to do?
I’m finding that many people really don’t understand what this means. The web is becoming a much more dangerous place to be and securing your website with SSL is another step in proving your identity.
It’s not hard to convert to SSL
What may not be clear is once you apply the certificate you need to convert the links in all the content on your site from http to https. WordPress will attempt to do this automatically once you change Site and WordPress address; but sometimes that is not enough and additional changes will need to be made.
It’s time to call an expert
If you’re not comfortable with doing this on your own, it may be time to call in an expert. Yes, there are tools, but a WordPress site can be complicated if its not maintained which can make the conversion challenging.
Why not give us a call to discuss. We can certainly making moving to SSL easier for you.
