    Hi!

    I have a domain service with Hello. How can I activate SSL for the service?

    Thanks!

    Hi Admin!

    First thing to note is that you do not enable SSL on a domain name. You do this at the hosting level or in the hosting service you use to host your website.

    There are may types of SSL certificates. My advice is that you contact your hosting provider and ask for options. It´s probably best if they also help with the installation as this may become tricky if you are not experienced doing this.

    Finally, if your hosting provider offers SSL by default like hello.co, you may need to make some edits to make the SSL (https) work by default. This means, redirect your visitors from your non SSL site (http) to your SSL site (https).

    For this add these lines to your htaccess file:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://<!!!your site url here!!!>/$1 [R,L]

    If you don´t know how to do this, again, ask your hosting provider.
    For the case of hello.co feel free to email us at and we´ll help with this.

    Side note, not for hosting: Please note that the FREE version of Weebly does not include SSL.

    Have great day,

    Gerardo
