To convert your blogspot blog from non secure to a secure blog, google has given an inbuilt feature to its blogspot bloggers.

Are you using a free platform for blogging?

If yes, are they offering a secure platform to you for blogging?

In this post, I am going to discuss about secure and non secure terms for blogspot a free platform for blogging.

Before we start learning how to convert a non-secure blog into a secure blog, we must know what are these two terms:-

What are HTTP and HTTPS?

The first terms (http) stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol and when there is one more layer added while transacting or fetching the url then it is converted to (https) Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secured.

What is a non-secure (http) blogging?

If a content is found on any platform using http in the address bar of the browser, then it is said to be a non secure blogging url.

What is a secure (http) blogging?

If a content is found on any platform using https in the address bar of the browser, then it is said to be a non secure blogging url.

In technical language, an https protocol consists with an additional layer of security. That is an encrypted form of security layer which hides data while transacting online.

Now lets start the main topic and learn how to convert an HTTP protocol to an HTTPS protocol in blogspot blog absolutely free.

Step4:- Change from No to Yes and you are done.
