How do I add an SSL certificate to my site?

Purchasing an SSL certificate through WP Engine is the easiest and most hassle-free way to get setup with additional security. We partner with RapidSSL so that we can offer you the opportunity to not only purchase the SSL Certificates, but also have them automatically installed. If you would like more info about RapidSSL you can consult:
