Announcing SSL protection for all Yola users

Web security is more important than ever. With this in mind, The Yola Team is excited to announce our newest feature: SSL Protection for all users.

What is SSL protection and why does it matter?

SSL establishes an encrypted link between a web server and a browser, ensuring that all data transferred remains private. It allows you to protect site visitors’ data from monitoring and tampering while they browse your website, purchase products and fill out contact forms.

While site security is a huge proponent of SSL, the additional benefits come two-fold:

Customer trust: In having an SSL certificate, the domain name of your business website will display with “HTTPS” rather than “HTTP” as well as a lock icon. This gives your customers peace of mind while browsing your website. It also shows that you value their security, boosting your credibility.

Search engine ranking: The Yola Team isn’t the only one aiming for a secure web. Google released an algorithm which gives secure sites an additional boost in search engine rankings.

How do I add SSL protection to my website?

We find site security so important, we’ve enabled them for all of our users with Yola domains and sub-domains. And we’ve made activation simple:

Within Yola Sitebuilder, navigate to Settings > Publishing. From there, click the switch to “Enable SSL.”

*Note, users with sub-domains can choose to Enable SSL or “Include www Prefix.” Users with a custom domain name have no restrictions.

*Note, users with sub-domains can choose to Enable SSL or “Include www Prefix.” Users with a custom domain name have no restrictions.

And with one click, your site is secure.

Put your customers’ minds at ease and add SSL protection to your business website today!

    If you are using a shopping cart and using HTML code instead of the cart widget, remember to change all http to https in the code otherwise the cart will disappear

    Has anyone notice a drop in traffic since changing to HTTPS ?

    • Yola says:

      Thank you for the feedback! The redirect to HTTPS can result in a temporary loss in traffic – in the same way any other redirect does. I see you were assisted by our Support team as well. We will definitely look into a more detailed explanation of what to expect when enabling SSL.

    I purchased my domain through Yola, but the settings page of sitebuilder says I have a pointed domain. I don’t know how to contact the host, except through Yola.

    • Yola says:

      Hello LP,

      In order to assist you with your inquiry it would be best to send us an email using the email address you to login at yola.com.

      This way we can locate and access your account immediately and see all of your services and settings, including your domain subscription details.

      Please also let us know the name of the domain you are referring to.

      We look forward to your email to assist further!

  8. Well you should be thanking CloudFlare really, because that is where the SSL certificates come from. In addition, anyone can obtain a secure website with them.
    At: https://www.cloudflare.com/

    • Yola says:

      We are very thankful to our partnership with Cloudflare. While it is true that anyone can obtain a secure website with them, our Yola users don’t need to worry about the set up as we seamlessly integrate the SSL feature directly into the Sitebuilder, making it easy to enable or disable the SSL feature.
