WordPress creator and Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg announced today that upcoming versions of the WordPress CMS would include features that would require hosts to support HTTPS.

“We’re at a turning point: 2017 is going to be the year that we’re going to see features in WordPress which require hosts to have HTTPS available. Just as JavaScript is a near necessity for smoother user experiences and more modern PHP versions are critical for performance, SSL just makes sense as the next hurdle our users are going to face.”

You don’t need to worry, as our hosting service allows support for HTTPS, so you can be rest assured your site(s) will support HTTPS.
