  • HTTPS Site wide??

    Any idea if 3dcart will have a feature or something that we can make the site to be HTTPS instead of just my account, one page check out or contact us page? From what I've been reading. If a site is HTTPS that it will help to improve rankings as well.

    It is possible to do this; I think 3dcart is testing this on a handful of stores. I assume it will be available to more stores at some point.

    It isn't something to stress greatly about though. Having all HTTPS store won't suddenly boost your serp rankings - it's just yet another ranking factor in the bucket of thousands more.

        Are there any downsides to converting to an all secure site? Bandwidth, caching, etc... ?

          No, that won't do it. Don't change any of that. That's for if your store URL is example.com and your secure URL is example.3dcartstores.com.

          As for downsides, the only ones I can think of are the consequences of having hard-coded <src="http:// ..."> links from non-secure sources; an all HTTPS store would results in errors when trying to load these resources.

            I changed my store settings and it did exactly that. I changed the store url from http://www.example.com to https://www.example.com and all pages were https. Even when I typed http://www.example.com it came up as https. Unless missing something, (totally possible) that makes the whole site https.

              It is possible that something changed (I believe that was being worked on), or it is possible that something is being overlooked. I would put in a ticket with support either way to see if they know or see something you don't. Good luck.
