How to Get a Free SSL for your WordPress Website


Hi guys welcome to Website learners Today we’re going to see how you can get
a free SSL for your wordpress website Now if you go to your website and you see
this not secure message on your browser It means that you do not have SSL Now if you want to change this message
into the secure lock symbol You need to get an SSL for your website So this will make
your visitors to trust your website So let’s get started We’re going to get a free SSL
in just five steps The first step is to
‘Create an account on a website called cloudflare’ So this is a website
which is going to give us the free SSL So to create the account
let’s go to cloudflare.com And then click sign up Now enter your email And password And click create account Okay so now our account is created Next let’s go to step two Which is to
‘Add your website to this account’ So just enter your website name And then click add site Then click Next Now select the free plan And click confirm Then scroll down And click continue Okay so now our website
has been added to cloudflare So next let’s go to step three Which is to ‘Change your nameservers’ So we need to add these nameservers To your domain So to add these nameservers You need to first login to your
domain provider’s website So to find out your domain provider Just click here And you can see that
our domain is provided by godaddy So to add these nameservers First let’s login to godaddy So we’ll open a new window And then go to godaddy.com Now click sign in And then sign in into your account So here you can see that we have the
same domain which we added to cloudflare Now to change the
nameservers of this domain Just click DNS And then scroll down to nameservers And click change Now click here And select custom And now here you need to enter the
details which is provided in cloudflare So let’s go there And then copy the first value And paste it here Then copy this one And paste it Now click save So now we have successfully
added the nameservers To our domain So let’s go back to cloudflare And then click continue Now to check if the nameservers are changed Let’s click recheck now And you will get this message And now if we click refresh You should see this green icon Which means your nameservers
have been changed Now even if you don’t
see this green icon immediately You can still go to the next step And everything will work
at the end of this video So once you have added your nameservers You can now go to step four Which is to install the
cloudflare plugin in wordpress So to install the plugin
let’s go to WordPress And then go to plugins And click add new Now search for flexible SSL And you will get this plugin Now let’s install this plugin by clicking here And activate So now we have installed the
cloudflare plugin in wordpress So once you have installed the plugin We can now go to the final step Which is to ‘Enable SSL in cloudflare’ So let’s go back to cloudflare And then click this lock icon Now scroll down to Always Use HTTPS And turn it on Now as soon as you turn this on Your website will now be secured with SSL So let’s check it Now if you go to your site You can see that
before we had this not secure message But now if we click refresh You can see that we now have the lock And the HTTPS Which means we have now got the SSL So now if you click here You can see that our browser says The connection is secure Now if your site didn’t load properly Just wait for a few minutes And then load it from a different device It will work after a few minutes Okay guys so this is how you can get
a free SSL for your wordpress website Now if you want to learn
how to create an e-commerce website You can watch this video And if you want to purchase
a domain or SSL from godaddy You can click here So thanks for watching
I’ll see you in the next video Ba-bye

  15. You currently have TLSv1 enabled.

    This version of TLS is being phased out. This warning won't break your padlock, however if you run an eCommerce site, PCI requirements state that TLSv1 must be disabled by June 30, 2018.
