    Default https on development site

    We're currently building our new online shop with Bluepark and as such are using the "bp***" address with the intention of switching this over to our domain once we're ready.

    We also intend to buy the site certificate to attain the HTTPS, but the question is whether to do this as part of the building process or wait until we're live and then add the certificate.

    On one hand my understanding is that the site would have to be remapped as URLs would effectively be changed, so it would be better to do whilst developing. On the other hand there would then be a discrepancy between the address the certificate was bought for "bp***" and the final address the site will be switched to, "".

    Any thoughts?

    Have a word with BP Support. They will point you in the right direction.

    When you go live it will all be switched to your correct domain. That is the time to buy the SSL which BP will sell you and also install.
