Starting today, all site administrators now have the ability to force visitors to view their site over HTTPS!
There is much discussion from Google as well as the US Federal Government as to why you might want to consider it. Least to say when it comes to Google search rankings, those that are HTTPs only get a little boost. This is how you do it.
SSL only is configured on the server on a per site basis so you must activate it for each of your sites individually. Fortunately it’s real simple
To enable this feature on your site, log into your Dashboard and click Settings -> SSL
In the resulting page you will see a “Go ahead, activate SSL!”. Click that button and you’re done! Browse your site and ensure that all content is displaying as you expect.
