Google should be able to handle all versions of SSL/TLS. The best way to see how Google handles something is via Google Webmaster Tools. Note: You have to have your site setup in Webmaster Tools for this to work. It's something you should consider anyway. Go to Webmaster Tools Select your site Select Crawl Select Fetch as Google

I was working for a third party company on a web project for a large tech corporation. We used a GoDaddy SSL certificate and found that this CA was rejected on internal company networks. The corporation at that time (2 years ago) did not automatically accept GoDaddy as a trusted authority. It was only with much persuasion that our certificate was accepted. ...

This is essentially just a normal matter of canonicalization. Using rel=canonical is good if you don't want to redirect. However, keep in mind that you can't use HSTS (which helps users to avoid even asking for the HTTP version) without really making sure that all of your traffic works with TLS/HTTPS. For Google Webmaster Tools, make sure that you have ...

Google can crawl https as well as http as long as your robots.txt has no restrictions on it, and you have links pointing to your https version listed somewhere publicly. You can sign up for Google Webmaster Tools to manage and monitor it.

It shouldn't. The unsecure warning comes about when a secured page incorporates non-secured elements. A canonical tag is a link, not an object to be incorporated into the page, so there's no reason why the padlock should care whether the URL it points to is http or https.

Web browsers do not care about canonical URLs. It is for search engine use only (specifically Google). Additionally, canonical URLs do not affect the loading or rendering of a web page. So no assets will be loaded over HTTP which is what would cause an insecure error message. So, no, they will not display any error message.

The web hosting company will issue a CSR for you and you have to submit this CSR at your SSL certificate provider. Once SSL is issued, you will have to provide SSL Certificate (provided by SSL provider) & the CA Bundle to your hosting provider. They will install it on your domain name. Note: For the SSL certificate, you will need to order a dedicated ...

You can buy your SSL certificate from any provider and then it is installed into your web hosting. When you purchase the SSL certificate, you specify the specific domain it is for. It is usually convenient to buy the SSL certificate from your web hosting provider as they may install it for you as part of the service, or at least be in a good position to ...

SSL certificates do not need to be transfered in the same way that domain names do. You can use the same certificate on multiple machines at the same time. The only reason to remove the certificate from your old Windows server would be to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands. You can test that your setup is working by visiting your site. If ...

301 Redirect Appears your image file has a 301 redirect. So the browser will load the HTTP version while the code says HTTPS. curl -I https://www.shopcandelabra.com/skin/frontend/default/candelabra/images/virtualtour.jpg HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently Date: Wed, 09 Jul 2014 16:12:53 GMT Server: LiteSpeed Connection: Keep-Alive Keep-Alive: timeout=5, ...

A form on an web page can submit to a secure location. You would need to set the action on that form to a full absolute URL like so: <form method=POST action="https://example.com/private/login.php"> If you want to ensure that your entire "private" subdirectory is only available with SSL, you can configure your server to redirect when it detects ...

Google Webmaster Tools change of address tool is only for sites that move to a whole new domain name. It doesn't cover cases such as: Moving from HTTP to HTTPS (or the other way around) Moving a subdirectory or subdomain to its own domain name Consolidating several sites into one Changing URLs within a site The reason that the tool exists is that new ...

Yes, this approach will work. The information you enter when creating the CSR is all it contains. The resulting certificate can be imported to any certificate store and used for its intended purpose on any software, provided that any tools required to manage the certificate are present. For Windows Server, use the MMC Certificate Snap-in and choose the ...
