Really Simple SSL Free And Pro WordPress Plugin With Automatic Mixed Content Fix

imageAll of us know the importance of having an SSL certificate. Given that Google started giving significance to sites with https prefix, you should install one to get an extra edge on SERPs.

But it really is a geeky process to migrate from http to https. You have to change a lot of things, especially if you are running an http for quite a while now.

Once you purchase or implement an SSL certificate for your site, you may some issues like broken images etc. Don’t worry! I have here to help you with that.

Really Simple SSL Pro Review

banner-772x250Yeah, Really Simple SSL helps you get rid of any issue arises from the migration. It is a WordPress plugin.

Features of Really Simple SSL Pro

The following are the features of Really Simple SSL Pro that I found enticing.

#1. Hassle-Free Installation

You don’t have to go through a series of complicated steps to install Really Simple SSL on your site. It can be done in the same way as you install any other site.

The plugin will take care of the rest. But you should implement SSL on your site before you activate this WordPress plugin.

#2. Scanning Feature to Check for Errors

The plugin comes with a scanning feature. It allows you to check for errors that can occur after forcing SSL.
I recommend you run the scan before you opt for the migration.

#3. HTTP Strict Transport Security

Most of the visitors request for an http version of a website rather than its https counterpart. So chances are their browsers load the unsecure http version.

That’s why this plugin has introduced HTTP strict transport security, which forces browsers to load https version. With the help of this feature, no visitor sees the http variant of your site.

#4. Responsive Email Support

I know you are a geeky person. For the same reason, you are afraid about making changes. Don’t worry!

This WordPress plugin also comes with a premium and responsive email support. Whenever you encounter any issues with the plugin, all you have to do is sending them a mail. Boom! Your problem will get solved right away as they give the highest priority to their customers’ emails.

So, should you go for Really Simple SSL Pro ?

Yeah, you should, especially if you have a website with a lot of content. The plugin makes sure every media and piece of content on your site are protected by SSL.

And this is one of the best plugin as there is a free version that you can try before going for the pro version and the free version is also good as it saved 5 hours of us in switching a WP magazine related website to the Secure Sockets Layer version. If there was no plugin like this we would have ended up paying $100 to WP devs for switching the version.
