Important Message regarding Google search and site security

* Action is highly recommended for you to enhance security and your site rankings.

Google has made changes to its search functionality. To get found in searches on google, websites that are secure (https) have a higher probability of being found. Additionally, Chrome has implemented some warning symbols on its browser for websites that are not 100% secure. Previously, most of our clients just have the checkout page secured.


There are three (3) possible categories in which your site may fall

  1. If you have your own custom domain but use our shared SSL: If you use your own domain name but use the CoreCommerce shared SSL, then you will be prompted to purchase a SSL and we will install it for you (this is recommended, but not required)

  2. If you use our CoreCommerce shared SSL and do not have a custom domain name for your store, just click the button and you will be switched to a totally secure site. Once clicking the blue Https everywhere you may incur down time of up to 5 minutes after you hit the button.  

  3. You have a custom domain and a custom SSL: Your merchant SSL will be secure once you hit the button we have created in your admin

If you are not using a dedicated SSL, your admin URL name will change. As an example, it will change from https://www21.corecommerce.com/~yourstorename to https://yourstorename.corecommerce.com

Consumers who click on your old URL will be redirected to your new secure URL.

What you need to do to enable site wide https.

Please login to your Admin >

 settings --> store settings (click pci/security settings tab on the left). If the following button is not shown, the store already supports https Everywhere.



Once the button is clicked, you will see a confirmation page with details on how to complete the update to your store.
