About This Class

In this course, instructor Jim Shirley will take you by the hand and show you how to make your WordPress website https secure for free - no matter what web host you use!

But first, let me ask you...

If you visited a website, and this warning appeared…


Would you continue shopping there?

Probably not.

And you wouldn’t be the only one.

82% of your peers would also move on.

Consumers are demanding more protection from brands due to recent high-profile hacks and data breaches.

But how do you protect your customers and gain their trust?

With something called an SSL certificate.

SSL means that when you visit a site, an encrypted link is created between the web server and your browser.


In the past, you only needed SSL if your business accepted credit cards or other sensitive details.

Google Chrome now alerts visitors that your site is “Not Secure” if you accept any information at all.

Even an email address.

And if that isn’t enough, having SSL is a factor in Google’s search ranking algorithm.

Worried that your business isn’t protected?

Well, you've come to the right place. 

In this course, Jim shows you everything you need to convert your website to SSL for free...

What can you expect to learn?

Inside the course, Jim shows you how to upgrade your WordPress website to secure https for free.

We will be using one of Jim's live sites as an example and you’ll be watching over his shoulder while he shows you every step.

Will it be too technical?

There’s nothing too technical here but you will need to log in to your WordPress dashboard and you’ll need to also log in to your domain host.

If you can do those two things, then Jim shows you how to take care of everything else.

How long will this class take?

This takes 30 – 45 minutes of work and then it takes about one day for the changes to take effect.

Why upgrade to ssl?

The main reason is trust. The most popular internet browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Internet Explorer all reward secure websites with a big green “secure” label right by your web address…And your website visitors see that and know they can trust and have confidence in your business.

Plus, SSL secures all the information that you send over the internet from your website – so it’s good for everyone.

Google and other search engines prefer secure sites so it can help you rank better in search.

This course is for you…

  • If you have a self-hosted WordPress website that you can log in too
  • You have access to manage your domain name (your website address)
  • You’re ready to make the switch to SSL!

Join Now!

Why wait? It takes less than 45 minutes to go through this course and by tomorrow your website will be SSL secure.
