I finally posted my site and went live via Webflow hosting. In advanced hosting and advanced publishing options I have the “enable SSL” slider to the right, and it says “on”. None the less my site is “not secure” and you get a warning not to enter the site due to this. Am I missing something, or does this take a while to go into effect?
Does your domain provider allow SSL?
Good question. I don’t know, The provider is Inexpensivedomains.com. Come to think of it it worked previously with the same domain provider but I had a different (private host/server). They were able to setup the SSL. I only have this problem now that I changed over to the webflow hosting today.
Even if it is standard, some dodgy providers do not follow…
Their own domain is not secure
Got it. Well, it was secure yesterday when the site was live running from another server, so I think the domain provider isn’t the issue. It only became “not secure” after my switching today to the webflow hosting/server. So I imagine something is going on there or I didn’t fully set something up correctly. I just don’t know what to look at other than making sure the SSL is checked on in the hosting section.
Anyone on this? I currently have a business website that is inoperable due to this issue which of course is less than optimal.
For anyone who comes across this with a similar problem. The issue was that I set the SSL to “on” after I entered the information (the two A value numbers and the one Cname) to the DNS server. Apparently selecting the “enable SSL” changed those values. Once I went back into Webflow and got the new values, and entered them into the DNS I was good to go.
Thank you for sharing the solution
