Adding SSL certificates to your site

Having SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is an important feature to have on your website as it encrypts all data transferred online. This means your visitor's data (such as addresses, payment information, etc..) is protected against monitoring and tampering. Having SSL increases your customer's trust and gives them a peace of mind as they are browsing through your site. In addition, secure sites reap an additional boost in search engine rankings!

How to add:

1. In the Sitebuilder, go to Settings > Publishing.
2. Under "Enable SSL", slide the toggle button to the right.
