Migrating your website from an HTTP to an HTTPS connection is undoubtedly a good decision due to the numerous benefits that HTTPS offers, including safety, better SEO, the accuracy of the data, and many more. However, in migrating your website, you have probably encountered some issues. One of the problems that might occur is mixed content warnings, which make your website look suspicious and insecure to visitors. Of course, there is an easy solution to your situation, so keep reading.
What is mixed content?
Mixed content represents the process of loading HTML through a secure HTTPS connection. However, other content on the website, like images, files, videos, and scripts, are still being loaded through an insecure connection, i.e., HTTP. Once you have migrated to HTTPS, every single content on your website should be loaded over the same connection, or you will experience some troubles in the form of mixed content warnings. These warnings should be solved and removed promptly and quickly so that the performance of your website stays in good shape and your customers do not complain about the insecure connection of your website.
