Architect Worry-Free Hosted sites include a free SSL certificate with each site published. This certificate allows you to convert your site from HTTP to HTTPS, which gives your site secure status. This increases your site security and also ensures your site will rank higher, as Google gives preference to secure sites.

To ensure this certificate is generated and set up properly, first publish your site and set up your hosting. Then simply click on the Settings option in the left menu, select “Site SSL.”

 

Select “Generate Certificate.”

 

Click this and then select the “Force visitors to use secure connection.”

The system will generate an SSL certificate; the status will show as “Approved” once this is done and you can then set up your redirect (read more about setting up your custom domain for instructions).
