SSL allows you to serve your sites using HTTPS, giving your users a guarantee of data integrity and privacy when they visit.

We provide SSL certificates free and by default. All Divio Cloud sites can be accessed using the HTTPS protocol instead of plain HTTP.

Custom certificates

If you have your own certificate, this can be applied to BusinessProtection+ sites - just drop us a line and we'll set it all up for you.

HTTPS redirects

By default, we don't redirect HTTP users to HTTPS, because for some cases this might not be appropriate. However unless you have a good reason not to, we advise that you set this up for your site, so that when your visitors arrive on a url such as http://example.com/ they will be redirected to https://example.com/.

To enable this:

  • Add an Environment Variable called SECURE_SSL_REDIRECT  to your Live server.
  • Set it to True.
  • Re-deploy your server.
