Cannot update website URL in Google Maps listing. Have tried making change in GMB.

Trying to update the Google Maps listing for my restaurant. The restaurant name is Dopo La Spiaggia and it is located in Sag Harbor new york. The website we are trying to use on the google maps listing is www.DopoLaSpiaggia.com. However, whenever we try to make the change, it is denied. Also we have tried verifying his ownership of domain with the Google business listing service and change the website in the settings there, but it always defaults back to the facebook link. How do we fix this?? 

 

The Google+ URL is https://plus.google.com/103457105014041111348?hl=en

its not the G+ URL making problems
Its the website.

It isn't enabled to get SSL access.

https://www.DopoLaSpiaggia.com will not work.

I know from expeerience GoogleMyBusiness and MapMaker seem checking eacg website submitted as bsuiness websit for ability of SSL access.

So youre saying my website has to be enabled for SSL with an https address in order for this to work? Other local businesses have no issue with their standard website listing without https??

Yes I'm saying it must be enabled for SSL

and I ask you to give me any sample of a verified GoogleMyBusines listing
with a website not being enabled for SSL.
Note:
Im not saying you are requested to specify the website in the layout
https://www.your.domain


I'm saing:
in case you like to enter a website like www.your.domain in GoogleMyBusines
this website must be accessible via https://www.your.domain too as
GooglemyBusiness will check this before accepting your website.
