WP Force SSL helps you redirect insecure HTTP traffic to secure HTTPS and fix SSL errors without touching any code. Activate Force SSL and everything will be set and SSL enabled. The entire site will move to HTTPS using your SSL certificate. It works with any SSL certificate. It can be free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt or a paid SSL certificate.
How to add SSL & enable SSL? Most hosting companies support the free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt, so login to your hosting panel and add SSL certificate. You’ll see a button labeled “Add SSL Certificate” or “Add Let’s Encrypt Certificate” and after that it’s 1 click to have the SSL enabled on your site with WP Force SSL. If that doesn’t work get WP Force SSL PRO and it’ll generate free SSL certificate for your site. And will regenerate SSL certificate every 90 days.
Access WP Force SSL settings via the main Settings menu -> WP Force SSL.
