Convert From HTTP to HTTPS Using CloudFlare SSL

I recently converted a website from HTTP to HTTPS using CloudFlare’s Universal SSL, which is free and does not require installation on the server, two factors that had prevented me from doing this previously. Here are the steps I took to convert my website to HTTPS:

1. Update all internal links to point to the HTTPS version of the asset. This includes the following:

  • Canonical URL
  • Internal links
  • CSS
  • Javascript
  • Images
  • External CSS resources such as Google fonts

Depending on how complex your website is, this effort could range from a few minutes (if you have a very small website) to a big project that takes several months (if you are a large enterprise). However, if you belong to the latter category or if you are doing ecommerce, it is a good idea to go with one of the commercial SSL certificates rather than getting SSL through CloudFlare.
