I have just bought and installed an SSL cert on my site.
When i visit https://www.mysite.com
it shows the lock symbol in the address bar. I've also checked that it is installed properly via a few online tools.
I have two queries:
01 - if i just type the name of my site without the https it just goes to http… is this normal… do i need to setup a redirect or some other function to force https... i was under the assumption that once an SSL cert is installed it would use https by default.
02 - when i access my cpanel login, it still has a red line through it, so it seems like the SSL is not processing correctly on my cpanel.
Can anyone advise on the above, thanks in advance.
