We have a site that has been active for 3 years and generating consistent profits lines and constant traffic. The site has never had SSL certificates partly because we have been test-marketing the market niche. It is now time to get serious and we are about to apply SSL to the existing site. Since there is no e-commerce platform that can accommodate the unique attributes of our requirements, it is our intention to change the links to the necessary pages within the site from an http: location to an https: location as well as do a 301 redirect in the .htaccess to change the server direction.
Is this all that needs to be done once we have the SSL certifucate properly added to the server or is there something that I am missing?
Thanks for your asistance
