Hello! Can you please provide further information on how to address the following issues, which seem to appear in every web audit I have carried out:

* Fixed www and non-www versions
* Issues with HTTP/HTTPS site versions

Thank you.
Regards
Melanie

You need to make sure you have a proper redirect set up for both versions, So your HTTP should redirect to the HTTPs version with a 301 redirect, and the same for www and non-www versions.

Sorry, I don't understand. Why would I Redirect to HTTPS if my site doesn't have an SSL Certificate?

You may not have an SSL certificate, yet your hosting provider may still have it open for you and incorrectly set. Try to load the HTTPS version of your website in the browser and check what will be the server response code. It should be either a 301 redirect or a 404 response code. But better to use a redirect.
