The private SSL certificate is an important upgrade to your website. The basic function of an SSL is to encrypt all communication between the browser and the server, ensuring that all data goes through a secure (HTTPS) connection. An SSL certificate is a necessity when you want to operate an online shop and process the sensitive customers data through your software. It helps you gain your clients’ trust and increase your web site’s search engines rank. You can purchase a private SSL from the SiteGround SSL Certificate page ; sslcertificate ; sslshopper; ect
To configure Magento to work with your SSL certificate, first you need to login to your admin area and go to System -> Configuration.
Next, click on the Web link under the General tab in your left menu.
On this page, you will see many options that you can configure. However, focus only on the Secure tab. In it, make sure that you’ve Set “Use Secure URLs in Frontend” to yes ( this enables a secure shopping cart) and Set “Use Secure URLs in Admin” to no (yes if you want your admin to be https secured).
