Google: To HTTPS, or not to HTTPS?

UPDATE: Full site HTTPS was implemented into the Bluepark platform in April 2016 and is recommended for all sites.

Google has recently blogged about using the HTTPS protocol "everywhere", on every page of the Internet.

At the moment, if you use an SSL certificate on your Bluepark site, it forces HTTPS mode on what are classed as "sensitive" areas of your site. These are any pages involving signing in (authentication using passwords) and checking out (submission of personal and payment details). Specific sections of your Admin Console are also protected in this way.

The importance of 301 redirects

When you change a page URL on your site, you run the risk of causing damage to your site's SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Does this mean that you should never change any of the URLs throughout your site? No, not at all, there is a very simple solution. Bluepark sites can now generate 301 redirects automatically.
