Upgrading to SSL today

Postby e_i_pi » Sat Mar 11, 2017 8:48 am

I'll be upgrading the site to SSL today, which means it will divert from http to https. There are a number of reasons for this, the main one being that your site gains more credibility with Google and other bodies when it has SSL.

When I upgraded the shop to SSL a while ago, there were outages throughout the day. I expect the same thing will happen here. I will try to keep outages to a minimum, but I can't guarantee 100% uptime during switch over. I'm hoping the outages last less than 2 hours total, and I will do my best to minimise down time.

Update:

All sub-domains are done. Main domain and test site still need doing, but they require code changes as well, so I'll be working on that now.
