Enable SSL for Your Site

Enabling SSL ensures that your visitors can browse your website safely and securely. You can turn this on easily from within the site editor.

Click the Settings tab in the site editor and scroll down to SSL in the General section, then click the Enable button.

Don't forget to publish your site after turning on SSL!

If you're using a domain name you purchased elsewhere, there's an extra step required in order to get SSL up and running on your site.

When you click the enable button, you'll see a message like the one above with instructions for pointing your domain to a specific IP address. Even if your domain is already pointed to Weebly, you'll need to make these changes before you can set up SSL on your site. You'll also want to make sure that you don't have any AAAA records for your domain, as these records aren't supported by Weebly and having them in place will interfere with the SSL set up. You probably don't have any AAAA records for your domain, but if you're not sure ask your registrar.

Once you've taken care of the steps above, come back and click the enable button to finish the process, then publish your website.
