Stay Secure with HTTPS on Your Website

Jimdo websites now have HTTPS protection

Jimdo now has an extra layer of security! In the upcoming weeks, we will enable free HTTPS encryption for your entire website. This technology makes sure the connection between your browser and website is secure, and protects your visitors’ information when they use your site.

 


As soon as HTTPS is active for your Jimdo website, the secure connection will appear as a small lock icon in your browser's address bar:

An example of an HTTPS protected website

What are the benefits of HTTPS?

Jimdo already secures all online shops with HTTPS, but now we are extending that same level of protection to your entire website. This protects all your bases—which is an advantage for you and your visitors. Your customers will know that they can trust your website and that their personal information is secure.

 

As a nice SEO boost, HTTPS on your website will also improve your Google ranking!

 

Best of all, you don’t have to do anything. The update will take place automatically and your content and design won’t change—but behind the scenes you and your visitors will benefit from the best protection and the latest technology. So sit back, relax, and enjoy knowing that your website is all taken care of.

If you're using code in a Widget/HTML Element or in the Edit Head section that's not compatible with HTTPS, you may get a note in your browser window with the message "insecure content.” If this happens, please follow these quick steps.


We look forward to converting all our Jimdo websites to HTTPS for more added security and making your Jimdo site even better!

    Just read an article stating that Google will soon begin penalising sites that don't have https encryption. As usual Jimdo is ahead of the game. Thanks Tara - Declan

    Thank you Jimdo!! I am really really happy to hear this :-) I love Jimdo but I seriously considered looking for a provider who could provide https.
    So thank you so much for listening to your customers.

    Thank for this amazing news. But I am still skepticol that google will se the https as a new website. Are you putting in place a 301 redirect in order to move all the seo organic position to the new https?

    Have we to chance all the internal links to the new https (image links, text linkes, etc...)

    Thank you for your amazing job!

    Thank you for all your nice comments! It's great to hear your feedback :)

    @Michela: Please rest assured we have taken care of everything and any internal links will also be switched to HTTPS. If you find any problems on your website in the upcoming weeks or have any questions, our Support Team will be happy to help answer any concerns about HTTPS: http://support.jimdo.com/

    @Nadeem: In the upcoming weeks we will be encrypting every website with HTTPS. Don't worry, there is nothing you have to change on your website. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the Holiday Season :)

    Sab (Sunday, 18 December 2016 15:28)

    I have nothing but trouble since the migration to https. My Disqus comments are gone, I lost all my Social Media shares and also several ads are not showing up anymore. I fixed the problem with Social Media (I had to add every URL into the Facebook debugger - thx god I have only around 50 articles) but the biggest problem is still there: How do I get my comments back? Also right now Disqus is not loading at all, no one can comment. Can someone please help? I already contacted the support, waiting for reply.

    Hey Sab,

    We just took a look at your website and the problem was in the HTTP Disqus module. We have changed that for you and now everything should be back to normal.

    You should get a response from our Support Team today, as we were off on the weekend. If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to let them know.

    We hope you have a great start to the week!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, I have many elements/widgets that stopped working.
    Can you stop this https redirect - I mean totally?
    Thank you in advance for the support.
    I would appreciate if can toggle between https and http myself so that I can switch later to https (when I have time to adjust and test) but now I have not the time to go into this.
    Lora

    PS: I would appreciate if technical changes are communicated before and not after the change.
    I do not remember seeing a notification

    robert bowers (Saturday, 24 December 2016 07:07)

    Visitors using Windows XP logging in to my site are receiving a message that the site is not secure and not allowing them to see the content.
    Responses from help/support seem to reflect the attitude "too bad !".. dumb XP users with Chrome as their browser cannot get thru the HTTPS protocol you recently installed, and that's too bad....buy a new operating system or switch to Firefox which does not have this problem.
    Hope you can offer a better fix than that...nobody will buy my product online when this message "Insecure site" appears.

    I have recently implemented https for my website https://www.31west.net but there is no such boost in the google ranking.

  • #39

    Maggie (Jimdo) (Thursday, 29 December 2016 21:49)

    @Lora - Thanks for your message. We can't toggle the http/https on and off, but we're sorry that you're experiencing some trouble with your widgets. Did you see the message in our Support Center? In many cases it's just a matter of adding an "s" to the code in your Widget/HTML element (see this page for more info: http://support.jimdo.com/faq/widget-html-elements-and-https/) In some instances, the widget-makers themselves haven't enabled https yet, but in 2017 many more websites should be following suit.

    Boguslaw (Friday, 30 December 2016 12:52)

    After the changes in the HTML code and attempt to save the changes I have a message:
    Part of your code is not compatible with HTTPS. Please check that you're using code with HTTPS. Find out how to make your code compatible here.

    Tara (Jimdo) (Thursday, 05 January 2017 08:40)

    @Boguslaw Sorry to hear that. If your code is not compatible with HTTPS in the Edit Head section or a Widget/HTML Element, please follow these steps:

    -Look in the Head area or in the relevant Widget/HTML Element for a place with the letters "HTTP" without the "S" behind it.
    -Add an "S" behind the "HTTP" so that the line reads "HTTPS".
    -Click Save
    Your code should now be compatible with HTTPS and your Widget should function just fine.

    If you continue to have problems, please do not hesitate to contact our awesome Support Team: https://support.jimdo.com/contact/ Have a nice day!

    Hey Fran,

    Thanks for your message. That sounds like it's related to your webmail or JimdoMail rather than HTTPS. If you could contact our Support Team they will be happy to help you out! https://support.jimdo.com/contact/

    Have a great day!

    Tara (Jimdo) (Monday, 09 January 2017 09:26)

    @Каролина Доброе утро! Дело в том, что недавно мы перевели все наши сайты на защищённый протокол HTTPS. Это современный стандарт, позволяющий защитить как данные владельцев сайтов, так и данные их посетителей и клиентов. К сожалению, это также значит, что на Jimdo-сайтах не смогут работать устаревшие модули, не поддерживающие HTTPS. Судя по всему ваш счётчик как раз такой. Проверить это можно достаточно просто: пожалуйста, пройдите в режим редактирования кода счётчика и смените все "http" на "https". Если это не поможет, то это будет значить, что он не поддерживает HTTPS и не может быть использован на Jimdo. В этом случае мы рекомендуем вам воспользоваться счётчиком любой современной системой сбора статистики с поддержкой HTTPS.
