10. SSL Status



There are many benefits to securing your website with an SSL Certificate / HTTPS:

  • All payment pages can use the domain name, rather than the default secured "securemypayment.com" domain name that processes payments by default.
  • Increased confidence from the site's member's and visitors.
  • Potentially higher rankings from Google and other search engines (more information about Google's use of HTTPS as a ranking signal here).
  • Overall increased security for all non-billing information submitted on the site (all billing information is already secured by SSL / HTTPS by default for all sites).
  • The Admin area of the site is automatically secured with HTTPS.


To receive all of the benefits above for the website, we offer an SSL Security Add-On
