Many modern web browsers say that a website is not secure if it doesn't use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted connection between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. Therefore, search engines rank secured websites higher.
To install SSL you may need to have a domain. You can purchase a domain name here.
In order to make your website secure you should check your site to be available via HTTPS. You can do this by typing your website address in your web browser address bar the following way and following this address:
In case your site is opened correctly with no error, then SSL is already enabled on your site. So you should login your admin panel by link https://yoursite.com/mt-admin , go to the Settings tab General section and update your site address with the value below and Save:
Once this is done, you should just configure redirect from HTTP (non-secure) to HTTPS (secure) version of your site. You can do this by following this web site redirects guide.
In case your site is not shown by link https://yoursite.com , then you should either contact your hosting provider asking them to provide your site with an SSL certificate (enabling HTTPS connection) or purchase an SSL certificate with us by following this link. Once SSL is purchased and activated, you'll also need to change the site address in the control panel Settings tab as explained above and then configure redirects.
