SSLs and 301 Redirects

You can use a 301 redirect to force website visitors to use a secure 'HTTPS address when visiting your site instead of the regular 'HTTP address. Using a 301 redirect helps to prevent users from getting 'insecure' or 'unsafe' warnings in their internet browser.

We highly recommend that you set up a 301 redirect whenever you use an SSL. If you are not sure how to set up a 301 redirect, learn how to with our knowledge base article or call us at our support hotline to have our Professional Services team set it up for a small fee.
