Enable SSL (https redirection) on your website domain

Enable or disable HTTPS:// redirection for your website domain to direct traffic to your SSL-secured address (https instead of http).

Please note that this only works if an SSL certificate has already been purchased for the website. 


Step 1: Purchase an SSL Certificate in RAI

  1. Go to your RAI account
  2. Navigate to the site you want to enable SSL
  3. Click Subscriptions 


  4. Scroll down until you see "SSL Subscriptions" in the list.
  5. Click "Add SLL Certificate"
  6. If you have more than one domain, pick which one to apply the certificate to


Step 2: Enable the SLL certificate in the editor 

  1. Go to the editor of the site that you just purchased the SLL certificate for
  2. Navigate to the cog symbol in the top right corner and click "settings" in the dropdown


  3. Click "Website settings" in the left menu
  4. Click "SSL Certificate" in the menu that rolls out under Website Settings
  5. Tick the box "Enable SSL"
  6. Remember to click "Save" at the end


Why enable SSL?

An SSL certificate ensures that your site is validated as being trustworthy. Also, Google gives ranking value to sites with SSL certificates installed. The HTTPS:// redirection traditionally forwards the http://www.yourdomain.com tohttps://www.yourdomain.com.

Why disable SSL?

Disabling SSL can be useful if you want to use non-secure (HTTP) links on the website and avoid prompting browser security warnings.
