Note*: SSL will not apply unless the domain is pointed to server. If you just updated DNS, then please be patient with the changes.

Open cPanel >> Security >> SSL/TLS Status




Click over the Run AutoSSL button.



Bear patiently, till the progress completion. Once it’s done the page will auto-refresh and green locks will appear next to your domain. Which indicates the SSL is active.


Now, an SSL certificate issued on your domain. You can check with https:// 


Keep this in mind. 
The website must use HTTPS Protocol in the URL. If you are using WordPress then go to Settings >> General >> Here you can see URL options 


Here most of our new users will think.SSL activation means it will auto-redirect from HTTP to HTTPS. It’s not like the way you think.


We needed to force HTTPS on site. So that, every visitor will be redirected to HTTPS Connection.

There are two ways to force SSL on a website. Do follow any of the following, which you could perform easily.


1. By Using a plugin ( Recommended for beginners)

Log in to your WordPress Dashboard. On the left side, Click on Plugin >> Add New


Search  Really Simple SSL .  the plugin will appear top in the results. Click the Install Now.



Tap the Activate Button.


Lastly, Hit the Activate SSL button.

After it visits your website without HTTPS. It should redirect to HTTPS with no errors.  i.e  http://



2. By adding code in WordPress .htaccess file / without plugin ( Recommended for those who avoid using plugins )


Login to cPanel. Go to Files >> File Manager 



Primary (First attached) domain files are stored under the  public_html  directory,
Secondary / Addon domains destination path would be like this     public_html/

i.e  public_html/.htaccess 



Default the .htaccess file is hidden. So, we need to check the Show Hidden Files box from Settings.



Right-click over the .htaccess file to show up more options. Click the Edit.



First, remove code if there is any and add the following code in your .htaccess file and Save the Changes


RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
