Secure domain with HTTPS if you use your own website
Ecwid protects your customer data with SSL certificate and HTTPS protocol. When you add your Ecwid store to an existing website, you keep our free SSL certificate for your store. Although the rest of the website is a separate matter. You need to purchase an SSL certificate to protect sensitive information or even boost search engine rankings.
To provide security throughout your customers’ experience with your brand, buy and install an SSL certificate for your site. This will show the secure "lock" icon in your customers' browsers and will run your entire site via HTTPS.
If you use the Instant Site with an Ecwid domain (like https://example.company.site), you already have an SSL certificate by default.

Most domain registrars and hosting services sell SSL certificates. Buying from a domain registrar or a hosting service makes it easy to switch from HTTP to HTTPS. Here are some popular options:
We recommend using your domain registrar or hosting provider if they offer SSL certificate and can install it for your site domain or provide you with an easy way to switch to HTTPS through a simple setting in your domain/hosting account. This will save you hours of installing the certificate on the server manually and switching to HTTPS.
If you have a self-built site, you may also buy an SSL certificate from one of the SSL resellers:
