I have uploaded a website which does not look the same on Google Chrome as it does on the Website X5 preview. Afew things arnt aligning the same and the footer and text is different.

When I open the site on bing it is displaying correctly, however it states "not secure" even though I uploaded it as https. On Google Chrome it states "secure"

See screen shot attached, I will add more screenshots in discussion to show the difference.

Did you also enter https://yourdomain.com/ in the 'URL of the website' under step "5 Export", selection "Export the website to the internet" or does it say http://yourdomain.com? Change http to https. Then the project must be rebuilt. To do this, hold down the Ctrl key and click on the preview button. Wait until the green progress bar has completely run through and then load the project completely, not just the changes. To be sure that everything old is removed, you can delete the web space beforehand.

To ensure that the secure page is always displayed, you should select the option 'Force SSL' (if your web host offers this option). If this is not possible, you need an .htaccess file in your web space. You can create this file with notepad.exe and enter the following lines:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on

RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R= 301]

Then save the file and change the name to .htaccess with the Windows Explorer, whereby the dot must be in front of the file name. Copy this file into the root directory of the respective web space, i.e. where you also export the project with WebsiteX5.

Michael, please try ctrl+Preview and then do a full upload of the site (not new and changed), then CTRL+F5 when displayed in chrome (or other browser).

If this does not fix it please provide URL so we can compare site with preview snapshot.

If the site comes up as secure on Firefox, chrome, edge, etc just ignore Bing like most people do, it's indexes are not up to date.

If it is the website in your profile, it will also be displayed as unsecure on chrome. This happens because you haven't set up a redirect from http to https. Therefore you have to proceed as described above:

All this assumes that you have purchased a SSL Certificate?
