    How to make my website into HTTPS

    Hi Guys, before I state my query. I would like to introduce myself. My name is Ian and I am newbie to programming. I find this thread useful since I have similar problem about HTTPS. I am working on the Electrical Switchboard Manufacturer website (http://aussieswitchboards.com.au) and one of Google recommendation is to make my website into HTTPS. I haven't bought a SSL certificate since I would like to find a cheaper one. I found comodo but is there any other SSL certificate? any recommendations? Also, is there a dummy link video where I could learn how to make my website into HTTPS? you comments and recommendations is highly appreciated. Thanks

    You are going in right path, Not only Google but there are many factors, which are influenced with HTTPS. To enable HTTPS on your website you need to install valid SSL certificate on your website. To get cheaper cert, I would recommend SSL Shop. They have multiple options available to choose but in my opinion you should get Comodo certificate. You always have option to get free certificate on Let's Encrypt but it will require renewals on regular intervals. Third party CAs offer certificate for longer duration that can help to reduce unwanted downtime.

    Now to make your website HTTPS, you should have elaborated your question. Especially on which server your website is hosted. According to server you will be able to findout tutorial for configuration. I would also like to suggest this article where you can learn more: 1, 2
