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 Magento site

Webnerd through CPanel offer pre-installed SSL certificates.

Now we will show you how to get your Magento website to start using the certificate and forcing your visitors to see the encrypted version of your website.

Magento fully supports SSL and have a pre-built facility to switch between secure and non-secure sites.

Login to the administration area / backend.

- Select “System” dropdown.

- Now select “Configuration”

- Next, click on the “General” tab in the left menu

Now set "Use Secure URLs in Frontend" and "Use Secure URLs in Admin" to yes.

That’s it – you are all done - visitors to your site can now safely enter their username and password knowing its secure to do so.
