As a WordPress.com site owner, keep an eye out for this feature on your custom domains. Once your site is HTTPS-enabled, you should see a green lock icon in your browser’s address bar. All plaintext HTTP requests will be automatically redirected to their encrypted counterpart (your URL will begin with
http://). We will transparently handle all the complexities of SSL certificate management for you.
WordPress.com now provides HTTPS support for everyone for free, including websites with custom domains. We take care of the complexity, you enjoy a safer web!
