Even though you have an SSL certificate for your website, your visitors will not use HTTPS if HTTPS:// connection is not forced.

You can simply fix that by opening Hosting Manage → SSL:

And clicking on Force HTTPS in front of the domain in question:


  • All certificates, installed via hPanel, force HTTPS by default

  • Before forcing HTTPS, make sure that your website works without issues (access it by adding https:// to URL). You might need to fix a mixed content first

  • If your certificate becomes invalid (expires) while you have a website forcing HTTPS, your website will be unavailable. No worries, Lifetime SSLs from Hostinger are active as long as you use our hosting 💪
