HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of data between the user's computer and the website. Users expect a secure and private online experience when using a website. You must set up HTTPS in order to protect your users' connection to a Sana web store. This can be done partially (e.g. Checkout, Log in, Wish list) or for the entire web store. Partial HTTPS is used to secure only the pages which send sensitive data over the Internet.


Before configuring HTTPS, you must obtain a security certificate for the domain of your Sana web store. The certificate is issued by a certificate authority (CA), which takes steps to verify that your web address actually belongs to your organization. In case of a multistore solution and depending on your setup, you might need an additional certificate for each web store domain. If you install Sana on a test or development environment, you can use the self-signed SSL certificate instead of the real one. For more information, see 'Create a Self-Signed SSL Certificate'.
