All Things WordPress – The How, What and Why of SSLs


This All Things WordPress session was lead by Carel Bekker of ClickHOST and Mickey Mellen of GreenMellen Media. They discussed SSL certificates and why they’re so important for your website.

They dug into why you need an SSL, how it can protect you, and how it can help you rank better, and they also show a hands-on checklist to walk through doing it on your own site.

This Meetup was filmed by Matt James. In case you missed this Meetup, please review the video and slides below!
