How to apply SSL for WordPress

*If you're using a WordPress quick install, you don't need this.

STEP 1: Wait until after you'll install domain-validated SSL

If you have just created an account or added a domain, it may take up to 24 - 72 hours for the SSL settings to be reflected, so please be patient.

STEP 2: Confirm for SSL

Check if your website can be seen.
If shows such "Potential Security Risk Ahead", the SSL settings have not been completed, so please wait for a while and check again.

STEP 3: Log in WordPress

Click Menu Settings > General.
