I use TSO Host, yes I know some are not happy with them. Asides from that...

I asked them a couple of times to install the free 90 day SSL Certificate, nothing happened the first time, then the second time they put it on i could see the HTTPS briefly and they said it was working.

I contacted again today and they were insisting that it was installed; despite not seeing the padlock on any browser and HTTPS did not show up.

They then asked me to insert the following into htaccess file

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Which got both the padlock and the HTTPS to show. Is there anything wrong with them asking me to do this (I have already added these lines). I just want to be sure I was not fobbed off and that my website is secured.

  • When I set up a new WP site with SSL, I always use this little checklist:

    Your situation may be different, but it works for me and my setup.

    From the sounds of it, #2 and #6 from the checklist have been done.

    If I were you, I would go through the other steps which are all fairly easy and quick to do. And if that doesn't work, go back to your hosting support for more help.

    Regarding the code you added, that's step #6 so it's legit. What this does is if anyone types in your URL without using https in the front, it automatically redirects to the secured URL. So, in other words, typing in xxxtest. com would redirect to https://xxxtest. com.

    Hope that helps.

    Log into your WordPress dashboard ang go to Settings > General. Scroll down to the WordPress and Site URL Address field and replace the HTTP with HTTPS.
