    Me, I found it rather difficult what I have I read about the procedures setting up a secure site.

    Hi Peter,

    I just explained this to a client so I have this lovely screenshot I'll show you. Like Franko said below, it's all about security these days, and your Google ranking can be affected if your site is not secure. In Chrome, next to your url, where you usually see the little green lock to indicate a secure page, it will also say "secure" as well as say "Not secure" if you do not have an SSL.

    My understandign about Google and secure sites (SSL) is that "websites displayed using the Google Chrome web browser which contain either a password or credit card form will be marked as 'not secure' ...and be ranked lower.

    I don't see anywhere that this applies to 'showcase' sites, which have no logins and no card input forms.

    I'm looking through this post and noticed that her pictures are not showing in https either

    They still show in http

    Where is the .htaccess file?
    I assume it can be found in the assets view but I don't see it listed.
    Thank you
    Laura

    .htaccess is a server file. It is not found in Netobjects. You need to download it from your server and edit it in a text editor. There are heaps of resources on the web telling you how to do this. Not sure, but I do believe you have to be on a unix/apache server; I'm not experienced at all with microsoft servers so don't know if they have .htaccess or an equivalent.
