If you are looking to set your website up with an SSL Cert, you will also need to change the ‘base URL’ of the website to load all content with ‘https://’.  You can do this manually in the website settings in the WordPress Dashboard, or you can install a plugin to take care of it for you. The plugin we would recommend is ‘Really Simple SSL’.

To install Really Simple SSL, please see the following steps:

  • First, log in to your WordPress Dashboard
  • Mouse over Plugins and click Add New
  • Search for ‘Really Simple SSL’
  • Click Install Now and then click Activate
  • Click ‘Go ahead, activate SSL!’
  • Your site should now load over SSL
