Bravo, Weebly!


This was a good move — especially now that Google & Chrome have started ostracizing Websites that do not support SSL-certificate based security, even IF they are only one-way, push-only, informational sites.

Weebly has had SSL support for quite a while now, albeit just on its premium $25/month Business Plan.

Now, and I think it was as of today, they have made it available, FOR FREE, on ALL of its hosting plans. That is a good deal in that GoDaddy is charging $60/year!

Moreover, it is pretty easy to ENABLE!

But, But, But …

Here is a $64,000 TIP.

Read the Weebly SSL instructions to understand the whole process.

THEN, if your domain name is registered somewhere else, e.g., GoDaddy, Network Solutions etc., GO and change your DNS A-record FIRST.

This is CRUCIAL.

Until the A-record is pointing to the NEW 199.34.228.67 you CANNOT enable SSL.

And the A-record propagation can take an hour.

So do the A-record FIRST. Trust me on this. Then wait 1 – 2 hours.

Then follow the instructions and enable SSL in your SETTINGS.

SSL will be enabled in seconds.

Pretty neat.

The GoDaddy process, in comparison, is a nightmare EVEN once you pay them to help you get it done.
