WPX HOSTING FREE SSL CERTIFICATES

Assuming that your domain is correctly pointed to our nameservers at your domain registrar (eg

GoDaddy, Namecheap) and full DNS propagation has completed (can take up to 48 hours), then inside your WPX Hosting admin panel, click on [1] “Websites/SSL” and then [2] “SSL” and Enable: You will now be advised on the next step where you should choose between a free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate OR a commercial SSL certificate – close this information box and proceed: Once that box above has been closed, [1] the small, green SSL padlock has appeared next to the domain/site where we want to add the free SSL, and [2] we now click on the SSL dropdown menu and choose “Install FREE certificate”: When you click on "Install FREE Certificate", you will see a reminder message that the nameservers for this domain at your domain registrar (eg GoDaddy, Namecheap) MUST be pointed to the correct WPX Hosting nameservers in order for the SSL certificate installation to work properly (otherwise you will see an API error) – your correct nameservers can be found in the "Dashboard" area, the link is on the left navigation menu: You will now see a browser warning that the new SSL certificate will overwrite any current one but you probably don’t have an SSL on this site already, so click on OK to proceed and install the new SSL certificate: The SSL is now installed and if we enter the httpS:// version of our domain, the SSL shows as active: BUT finally, we need to redirect the NON-SSL versions of your domain URL (wwwdomaincom and domain

com to the SSL version eg httpS://domaincom) For this final 301 redirection step, we FIRSTLY need to go the Settings-General page inside our WordPress admin area and change the URLs there to the httpS version for BOTH the WordPress Address (URL) AND Site Address (URL) – don't forget to scroll down and click on "Save Changes" too (add www if that's your preferred site URL) Finally, we need to create 301 redirects from your non-SSL URLs to the SSL version + the www SSL version (unless you want that as your default site URL)

To do this, we need to add and 1-click activate the free Really Simple SSL plugin from here: https://wordpressorg/plugins/really-simple-ssl/ Simple huh? And you can AUTOMATICALLY install as many free SSL certificates as you wish on sites hosted with WPX Hosting NOTE: If you are using Cloudflare on your domain, the SSL option in your Cloudflare account should be selected to"Full(Strict)"!
