my name is Andrea Matone and I am a photographer by trade and a webmaster by necessity in order to maintain my websites up and running in an ever more complicated world of internet! I saw your profile on freelancer and was impressed by your skill sets. But I am not sure our request may fully fit your profile. Let me explain.
I would like to install a SSL certificate on our website [url removed, login to view] under the form of Organization validation possibly 2048-bit encryption as we collect personal information from our reservation module.
We are currently hosted on a Bluehost VPS server. Where they do offer a one click installation. We may prefer staying with our hosting for the ssl certificate for practicality unless you have any other good 3rd party recommendation with a clear advantage rather than slight price.
We would like to have help with the installation from someone with experience in order to avoid problems or unnecessary downtimes. We are running on wordpress and would like to have support for all the necessary activities needed to have the websites continue to run normally in https mode.
This would include inserting the 301 permanent redirects in the .htaccess file
Help with the internal linking of the website which unfortunately is currently absolute which I understand would need to changed to the new https URL structure. Perhaps using relative internal linking rather than absolute to avoid having the problem in the future. I understand this is more of a webmaster work but perhaps you have a faster way to do it.
Updating image and other links and files on the server to the new https structure including stylesheets scripts etc or any other files that would require the update.
Update Google search console or webmaster tools with the new site structure.
Test that everything is working correctly without drastic drop in traffic.
We are looking for an all inclusive developer installation.
Can you help out?
Thank you ,
