Webnerd ZA - Website Security

In this topic we address various aspects of website security.  We attempt to write about the most recent threats that all site owners should be aware of.

SSL for your Joomla Site

Webnerd offer pre-installed SSL certificates through CPanel.

This means that you can now force your visitors to see the encrypted version of your site by using HTTPS.

The good news is Joomla completely supports SSL and the process of using the certificate is pretty straight forward.


- Login to the admin area / backend

- Click on System

- Click on Global configuration

- Select Server

- Now select Forcer SSL: “Entire Site”


All done - this means that even if your user chooses to enter their login details in an Internet cafe or on a public connection the transaction is encrypted.
