Really Simple SSL automatically detects your settings and configures your website to run over https.
To keep it lightweight, the options are kept to a minimum. The entire site will move to SSL.

Three Simple Steps for Set-up

  • Get an SSL certificate (can’t do that for you, sorry).
  • Activate this plugin
  • Enable SSL with one click

Pro Features

  • The mixed content scan, which shows you what you have to do if you don’t have the green lock yet
  • The option to enable HTTP Strict Transport Security
  • The option to configure your site for the HSTS preload list
  • Mixed Content Fixer for the back-end
  • More detailed feedback on the configuration page.
  • Certificate expiration check: get an email when your SSL certificate is about to expire.
  • Premium support

What does the plugin actually do

  • The plugin handles most issues that WordPress has with SSL, like when you’re behind a reverse proxy/loadbalancer, or when no headers are passed which WordPress can use to detect SSL.
  • All incoming requests are redirected to https. Default with an internal WordPress redirect, but you can also enable a .htaccess redirect.
  • The site url and home url are changed to https.
  • Your insecure content is fixed by replacing all http:// urls with https://, except hyperlinks to other domains. Dynamically, so no database changes are made (except for the siteurl and homeurl).
