Weebly is a web-hosting service that allows users to create and maintain a website without any programming knowledge. Weebly offers a variety of features, including a drag-and-drop interface, templates, and e-commerce tools. One of the questions we get asked frequently is whether or not Weebly provides SSL.
The answer is yes! Weebly does provide SSL. In fact, Weebly was one of the first web-hosting services to offer SSL. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that encrypts data between two points. This is important for websites because it ensures that sensitive information (like credit card numbers) is not intercepted by third parties.
Weebly offers two types of SSL: Standard SSL and Extended Validation SSL. Standard SSL is included with all Weebly plans and secures the connection between your website and the Weebly servers. Extended Validation SSL is a premium service that secures the connection between your website and the visitor’s browser. EV SSL requires additional verification from Weebly, so it can take up to 48 hours for your certificate to be issued.
Once you have EV SSL, your website’s URL will display in green in the visitor’s browser, which builds trust and confidence with your visitors. If you’re interested in adding EV SSL to your Weebly site, you can upgrade through the Weebly App Center.
