SSL certificate activation
SSL certificate encrypts data between your website and its visitors.
Voog offers an option to add a free Let's Encrypt
certificate to your website.
When you have followed the SSL certificate video guide, then it can take up to to 24 hours for the certificate to activate. You can check whether the certificate is active by typing your website address to the browser URL with https:// prefix, for example https://mywebsite.com.
If the certificate is applied, you can force SSL and make sure the secure connection is always used on your website. Go to Settings > Domains menu and open the domain settings. Select 'Force SSL' > 'Always use SSL'.
