How to check if you have a SSL certificate
The safest and easiest way to find out if you have an SSL certificate to use for your site in order to set up HTTPS, is to send an email to your Hosting service (the hosting is where your site resides, some examples: Bluehost, SiteGround, GoDaddy, HostGator, etc.). Alternatively, you can purchase our complete Site Check-up service and we’ll take care of doing a check for you.
