Katia, inserting pins/markers should have no issue, since they're part of the code. Use the same process. Convert a map to https. If the pins still show, you'll good to go. If they don't, let me know here and I'll investigate further for you.

Debra, if you're building a new site with nothing but the payment services provider, you'll probably not need to do anything. Most providers are already using SSL. If, however, you add anything else to your site, you'll have to check any URLs it references.

Alastair, no, there's no timeline. Although I think I can get away with saying it will be this year. :-D Probably sooner though. Maybe. ;-)

Thanks Help Elf,

Sorry I am confused about the Google map. :oops:

The pins/markers are fine, yes they are part of the code, but I have a URL to my site within each marker. This URL is http and not https. Does this mean that each URL will not work after conversion?

Do I need to go and change each URL to https? Or is that the same for any pre-existing incoming link - it will be 'forwarded'?

Example here:

Kind regards

I'm still planning to use MoveIt! to change my domain. I'm wondering if changing to https will also be considered a site move by Google? Would it be better or worse to make one move to

http://www.olddomain.com to https://www.newdomain.com


rather than two moves:

http://www.olddomain.com to http://www.newdomain.com to https://www.newdomain.com


Or is it all the same?

The https is not seen a site move by Google. It is just the secure layer associated with domain.com (which is your true actual domain name ... http/https is non-secure/secure on the same domain ... www. or not, same domain, just a different URL)..

If you change to https right now, you have to redirect the old page http over to the new page https. I believe this will be handled automatically by the new HTTPS option SiteSell is working on.

All my best,

Debs
