SSL ("secure socket layer") is the standard method for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. It ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral, so you and your website's visitors can rest assured that your information is safe.

Sites that don't use SSL will be labeled "not secure" by some browsers, strongly discouraging people from visiting your site. Your site may be loaded on HTTPS and still show not secure warnings, read troubleshoot website security issues.

To set up SSL hosting, turn the SSL switch on in the Hosting tab of your Project Settings before connecting your domain to Webflow.
