Our HTTPS Services

Rewriting Service

wao.io's rewriting service is your solution against mixed content.

Once your website is using SSL, the browser interferes with every request that is sent via HTTP. A website is complex and loads a lot of different resources. Therefore, it is nearly impossible to keep track of all the different URLs. You can either install a developer tool to track down the URLs and change them manually or simply enable wao.io's rewriting service. All URLs will be rewritten as necessary, to prevent mixed content warnings and to ensure a perfectly safe user experience.

301 Redirecting Service

wao.io's 301 redirecting service ensures full encryption of your website and prevents duplicate content.

Installing an SSL certificate does not necessarily mean that your site is fully encrypted. Without redirecting your users (and search engine crawlers) to the SSL-secured version of your site, they may continue to use the insecure HTTP version. However, implementing a server-side 301 redirect is not that easy. This is why we have done the job for you: simply toggle "Redirect HTTP URLs to HTTPS" in your wao.io dashboard and rest assured that your site is fully encrypted.

Let's Encrypt Certificate

Let's Encrypt Certificate

wao.io's SSL service uses Let's Encryt certificates. Let's Encrypt (LE) is a free, automated, and open certificated authority (CA) provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) aiming for a more secure and privacy-respecting web.

Since its beginning in 2016 it has gained more and more popularity. Now in 2018, it is the most common CA. Even if your hoster does not support LE certificates, we will set it up for you. No matter where you host your website.

We simplify your SSL implementation

Installing SSL typically takes several steps: a verification process to prove your domain ownership, storing the paid certificate on your web server and finally, the hassle of renewing it periodically.

wao.io simplifies the process for you: we take care of domain validation, certificate installation and renewal without any extra costs.

Five Good Reasons for Moving Your Site to HTTPS/SSL

HTTPS protects the integrity of your website

HTTPS protects the integrity of your website

Your data packages may travel around the world in order to offer your users the fastest website experience. This gives attackers a huge chance to modify your website's content and threaten the integrity of your website. The injection of fake and/or malicious content will impact your brand and your revenue in a negative way. Luckily there is simple protection: HTTPS Upgrade with wao.io.

HTTPS protects your users

HTTPS protects your users

Encryption protects the privacy and security of your users. HTTPS prevents intruders from being able to passively listen to communications between your websites and your users. In the worst case, it involves sensitive data, but even non-sensitive data can become crucial in combination with other insensitive data.

HTTPS indicates trusthttps://

HTTPS indicates trust

If you use SSL for your website, the little green lock in the browser windows will instantly show your users that your website can be trusted. Chrome 68 is even marking non-encrypted sites with the label "non-secure" in order to help users protect their privacy. Help users protect their privacy in all browsers and get your free certificate today.

HTTPS: the prerequisite for HTTP/2

HTTPS: the prerequisite for HTTP/2

Lightning fast website through HTTP/2? Sounds like another good reason for SSL, since browsers only support the new protocol when it is used over an encrypted connection.

HTTPS improves your SERPs

Since 2014 SSL is one of Google's ranking factors. Pages with insecure content are down-ranked and malware infected websites are even removed from the index. Non SSL-secured websites trigger a warning when a user opens them in Chrome, which not only affects the trust of users, but in the long run also search results.
