Hey @ipigaurav!

 

The only way to use SSL with a Weebly site is to upgrade the site to Business and enable the option on the Settings tab.  There wouldn't be a way to use the certificate that you bought elsewhere with your site, unfortunately.  Sorry!

Hi Adam,

 

 

It's unfortunate indeed that we can't use our SSL certficates, my certificate is unused because of this same reason & since I have a portfolio website I dont need a business plan as starter plan works just fine for me. So does that mean just to take SSL , I have to shell out extra for the services I dont require? 

SSL is a basic requirement and should be provided to all at a resonable cost.

Weebly has been a great platform & I'm happy with the services, but not allowing use of SSL & forcing an upgrade does not go well with Weebly's work ethos. 

I hope Weebly will look into such requests from its users favourably in near future. 

 

Thanks & regards

Dear Weebly-Team,

I do believe SSL should belong to basic features nowadays. We all should work together to make the internet a more safe and secure place. I do not understand your policy and I am disappointed about your statement.

 

I hope Weebly will change its policy soon!

This is very poor.

I will have to look at moving away from Weebly

We've been rolling out SSL for free to all Weebly sites, so you shouldn't need to purchase any from third party providers once it's been rolled out to your account.

Can you try again? I made a change to your account so you should see ENABLE for your sites now.

Check out CloudFlare.com if you point your DNS over to them they also offer extra security on an SSL as well under Crypto.
