A little introduction: I am not a technical person, just a (WordPress) website owner. I’m preparing to activate Let’s Encrypt using the setting in my Cosmos hosting panel. My question is about the TLS settings I see in Cosmos.
There is a setting called ‘Force TLS’. When I enable this, do I still have to create a 301 rewrite rule in the .htaccess?
My main concern: losing my Google rankings. What’s the best approach for keeping the current rankings in the SERP’s when migrating to https?
Hope anyone can advise on this. Thanks in advance!
