HHTP Security Warning when loading WordPress Dashboard

When logging into the dashboard of the website saint-albans.org using Google Chrome, I receive the following HTTP Security Warning:

Your website is not using HTTPS/SSL. This is a security risk.

I've done some research on this issue and, as far as I can tell, the solution involves--in part--installing the Wordpress plugin Really Simple SSL. I did this but, apparently, using the plugin requires having an SSL security certificate. It's my understanding that Web Hosting Hub-hosted sites have shared SSL security certificates, but I don't know anything about the SSL security certificate for the above-named site. I'd welcome any help/advice. Thanks!

Thanks for your question regarding the use of HTTPS to access your "dashboard" for your website. Just as an FYI, if you're trying to access the cPanel securely, you can do it using this link: https://secure37.webhostinghub.com:2083/.

The WordPress dashboard requires an SSL certificate, which you can obtain for free. Once you have the certificate, then you use the plugin to apply it to your site.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
