SSL Certificates are proven to increase conversions by helping you provide a consistent checkout experience while communicating a sense of trust, privacy, and confidence to online shoppers.
They also allow you to convert your entire store from HTTP to HTTPS and help you with search engine rankings.
3dcart can help you take advantage of the SEO benefits by changing your entire site from HTTP to HTTPS. This is a sensitive process and it's important to take the proper steps to ensure your traffic doesn’t suffer.
The service includes:
- Ensure Robots.txt is not blocking HTTPS traffic from being crawled
- Ensure there are no Meta “no index no follow” tags blocking secure pages
- Change Canonical Tag to be secure version of URL
- Update all hard coded links on your site frame.html to be HTTPS
- Add New Property to Google Webmaster Tools and Submit Updated Google Sitemap
- Update any 3rd party tracking scripts to ensure they are being called over HTTPS
- Run HTTPS validation to list any additional HTTP elements that might need to be updated or removed out of the website.
This service requires a valid dedicated SSL Certificate to be installed on the website. The cost of the SSL certificate is not included as part of this service.
Important: By transferring the store to HTTPS, if the SSL certificate expires the store will be offline. We recommend renewing the SSL certificate for up to 3 years to avoid service interruption.
