Is there anyway to change our domain: http://example.com to https://example.com

You can't purchase a secure certificate from Yola as yet so your answer is no.

Yola is an unsecured server but with secure transaction facilities which is why you don't see the https or lock icon

No you can't ....It has nothing to do with your domain and everything to do with being on https servers.

Hello James

Petercsea and John are correct. It is not possible to have https with Yola. I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you.

Perhaps if you can let us know what you are wanting to do, we may be able to come up with some alternatives for you.

Hello Kevin,
Websites hosted by Yola cannot be secured using SSL certificates as we are virtual hosting. Therefore, we do not assign a unique IP address to each website. If you wish to secure your websites with SSL certificates you will need to move to an ISP who can provide you with a unique IP address for each of your websites. The other option is to use a third party payment gateway (like PayPal or Google Checkout) as you will use their security to transact online.

Hi Kevin,
A certificate couldn't be issued without verifying a secure server. So in fact this probably wouldn't happen. It's an electronic certificate most of the time and is with the latest software validated on each visit. It comes through a strict accreditation and licensing system for a fee ranging from $0 to $hundreds per certificate.
