A simple, fast, and effective way to make sure URLs get redirected to HTTPS dynamically.

Simply activate the plugin and you're done:

There are no plugin settings to adjust, and no changes are made to your WordPress configuration — simply activate or deactivate the plugin to enable / disable the filters and dynamic redirects.

Significantly different than other plugins of this type (in a good way):

Other plugins use PHP's output buffer to search and replace URLs within the webpage document. Using PHP's output filter is error prone and much slower than hooking native WordPress filters in combination with permanent 301 redirects (which are considered best for SEO when moving from HTTP to HTTPS).

Checks for and honors proxy / load-balancing variables:



Your web server must be configured with an SSL certificate and able to handle HTTPS request. ;-)

Suggested plugins to improve social and SEO ranking:

  • The WPSSO Core plugin makes sure your content looks great on all social and search sites - no matter how URLs are crawled, shared, re-shared, posted, or embedded!

  • The WPSSO Schema JSON-LD Markup add-on for WPSSO Core offers Schema JSON-LD / Google Rich Results markup for Articles, Events, Local Business, Products, Recipes, Reviews and many more.
