About SSL and HTTPS

HTTPS is a security protocol that helps your site stay secure. This protection is validated by an SSL certificate.

All Wix sites have been enabled for HTTPS and come with free web hosting as standard. 

Important:

  • Wix does not support SSL for domains or subdomains connected to external (non-Wix) websites.

  • It is not possible to manually disable an SSL certificate for a Wix site.

What is HTTPS?

Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure protocol through which your browser communicates with sites.

When using HTTP sites, any data that is transferred can potentially be accessed or manipulated by attackers. However, when using HTTPS sites, data is encrypted and authenticated and therefore secured.

We at Wix are committed to protecting your and your user's data. Therefore, all new sites created on Wix have HTTPS automatically enabled at no additional cost.

Benefits of Using HTTPS

  • Your site visitors' information is encrypted, and therefore more secure.

  • Many users are more comfortable making purchases and sharing their personal information online when visiting secured sites.

  • Google Chrome now displays warnings anytime a user visits a site that is not using HTTPS. Therefore if your site is not secured, your site visitors will get a warning message anytime they access your site. 

  • Google ranks HTTPS sites more favorably. Converting your site to HTTPS will therefore improve your Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

What is an SSL Certificate?

A Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL certificate, allows your site visitors to view your site over an HTTPS connection. It secures the connection between your browser and the site you’re visiting. 

Wix provides your site with an SSL certificate. You can see if your site has an SSL certificate if the URL begins with https:// instead of http://. 

Your site URL shows an "i" icon in Google Chrome if you do not have an SSL certificate enabled.

Your site URL shows a lock icon in Google Chrome to indicate it has an SSL certificate.

Wix also automatically generates a certificate for each custom domain and subdomain connected to your site.

Using HTTPS on Older Browsers

Some older browsers don’t support the high security standards required by SSL certificates. 

Unsupported browsers include: 

  • Google Chrome versions older than 6

  • Internet Explorer versions older than 7

  • Firefox versions older than 2.0

  • Safari versions older than 2.1

  • All versions of Internet Explorer on Windows XP

Unsupported mobile browsers include:

  • Safari browsers running on an iOS version older than 4.0

  • Android browsers running on a version older than 3.0 (Honeycomb)

  • Windows Phone browsers running on a version older than 7

Visitors accessing your site on these browsers may have trouble loading the HTTPS version of your site. To avoid these issues, we recommend using a supported browser to view or edit your site.
