    Why http still work after applied SSL


    I had applied SSL with my IIS default website:
    Using SELFSSL create a self-signed cert, the command is
    SELFSSL /T
    This may apply a self-signed cert to my IIS default website.

    Then I tried (http: // 127.0.0.1 / mypage.html)
    I can access without problem even warning, why?
    I had thought it must raise a warning forcing me to use https instead.
    If no warning or error after applied SSL, how can I verify that my SSL has successfully taken effect?
    thanks a lot!

    Maybe try changing your link you're using to use https...

    If you have installed the SSL in your domain with www or without www then you can check using https://domain.tld or https://www.domain.tld (if you have installed SSL with www).

    Moreover, you can also access your site without https though you have installed the SSL certificate in your domain.
