Make my Verizon Small Business Essentials Secure

By default, Verizon Small Business Essentials web sites are not HTTPS-ready, meaning you cannot type https:// before the URL of your Verizon Small Business Essentials. Google has hinted for some time that they will eventually rank secure sites higher than non-secure ones, and recently they announced that as of October of 2017, Chrome will visibly flag non-secure URLs in the browser's address bar as NOT SECURE.

Verizon SBE now offers the option for any Verizon Small Business Essentials to be HTTPS secure through a "blanket" SSL certificate they provide to all stores (so store owners don't need to obtain their own SSL certificate.) This option is offered as an "on/off" switch, however, in most cases simply flipping the switch will not make the store fully secure. Why is that?

In order for a site to get the nice green "SECURE" flag next to its URL in the address bar, not only does the site's pages themselves need to be secure, but all the other files, images, videos, CSS, JavaScript, etc. files those pages reference as well.

If getting all of this done seems like a daunting task, we offer a Secure Store Preparation Service service for Verizon Small Business Essentialss. That page also contains a lot of important info and Q&A related to making Verizon Small Business Essentialss secure.
