Secure and Unsecure Base URLs

Each website in a Magento installation has a base URL that is assigned to the storefront and to
the Admin. If you have a security certificate for your domain, you can configure either, or both
base URLs to operate over a securely encrypted SSL channel. Unsecure base URLs begin with
“http,” and secure base URLs begin with “https.”
Unsecure Base URL
Secure Base URL
URL with IP address
If Magento was installed before you registered a domain, the base URL might include the IP
address of the server. If you don’t yet have security certificate, the store will not be able to
switch to secure URLs (https) for transactions that normally take place over the secure socket
layer (SSL). These configuration settings can be updated later to reflect the values you need
before the store “goes live.”
Important! Do not change the Admin URL from the default in the Base URL configuration. To
change the Admin URL or path, see: Using a Custom Admin URL.
