HTTPS Encryption / SSL Option for all Packages - SEO Best Practice

Status: We're Working on It.

Now that Chrome has been updated to basically shame websites that are not secured, it would be good to have the option to purchase and enable HTTPS/SSL for any paid site since this is a best practice for SEO. I saw in another community post that there are no plans at this time to make this option available for anything below the Business package but I hope that is reconsidered if there is enough user support. Weebly is a great platform and keeps getting better, but it would be unfortunate to have to accept that using Weebly means that you will not be able to adhere to certain SEO best practices.

 

For reference, here is the post from the Google Webmaster Central Blog back in 2014: HTTPS as a ranking signal

HTTPS should be free for all sites

To rank higher on google, HTTPS (secure site) is a must. Other website builders such as Jimdo now offer this free for every level of their paid subscription sites. (see: https://www.jimdo.com/2016/12/13/stay-secure-with-https-on-your-website/)

When is Weebly planning to do this? If not soon, a lot of people will go to other providers!

There is a new requirement placed by Google to make all websites secured through SSL certificates. They have announced that the latest Chrome browser version will warn users on websites that are not using SSL (https). For those websites, Chrome will present a message in the address bar that reads ‘not secure’.

 

Weebly should Include free or at nominal cost, SSL certificates for all account levels ASAP.

HTTPS now necessary on any website

People are already raising this issue with Weebly- time to hear a response!  From January 2017, sites without HTTPS get a red 'not secure' notice when visited from a Chrome browser.  This will certainly deter some visitors, and probably have a direct impact on SEO ranking.

I never regretted choosing Weebly seven years ago, but this development has me very concerned.

If WordPress can offer HTTPS for log-in, why not Weebly?

Secure Clients Login Screen for Designer Clients

Can you please add the capability to add and SSL Cert to the "editmysite" login/client login screens for clients of the Designer Accounts. Especially if a Designer account client paid for the professional account that comes with an SSL cert. 

 

Or add Two-Factor authentication to the Desinger account client login (editmysite) screen?

 

The lack of security for this login screen can make Designer liable to security breaches or hack attempts of our clients websites.
