SSL Certificate And Its Needs!

Postby pvariel » Sat Apr 22, 2017 9:02 am

Google is insisting the current websites and blog pages to go for SSL certificates.
If so it should be a must thing to do by bloggers.
How can we obtain this certificate and how can we incorporate our sites and blog pages.
And which one is the best, Is that free or a premium one. And What are the benefits of this?
Would like to hear from the expert here.
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Hello Philip,

There is only about 1% impact of SSL on search algorithm. However, moving to SSL is always a good choice.

There are many hosting providers give free SSL in association with Let's Encrypt and other SSL Vendors such as One.com offers free SSL of Comodo, Hawkhost uses Let's Encrypt.

You should talk to your host if they offer free SSL. If yes, you will have to activate that on your domain from CPanel. Once done, you just have to add a code that redirects all http requests to https so that even the visitors come to http version, they get redirected to https.

Hope this helps. If you still got any issues, do write in. thankx

Dear Atish,
Here is a small problem/doubt:
My SSL certificate is activated but not reflecting fully in my URL that is, it is not showing it in gree with the SECURE letter and lock symbol. But it is showing the https in URL that is: https://www.pvariel.com/5

When I click to open the page in seconds its appearing in green with the lock symbol but it disappears immediately and showing only: https://www.pvariel.com/5

But to my surprise when in the dashboard it’s showing well with the SECURE letter with lock symbol in green. what does this mean? My site is not fully verified or?

I am attaching the screenshots of the dashboard page and other details for a quick reference.

Can anyone guide me in this?

Hello Philip,

This doesn't show green because on the pages, some non https elements would be loading. For that you need to find out whether some images or ads still have http url there. When I changed to https, I did get this problem as well but you have to check this out, and make sure everything should load with https on the page, then only green lock you can see.

Hope this helps.
