SSL Certificates allow your website to be more secure - the traffic between your server and your website visitor is encrypted. (Visibly it's in place when you see https instead of http in the address.)
Our hosting plans all come with a free SSL Certificate. This is provided through cPanel's AutoSSL, a feature that automatically installs and renews certificates. In most cases, the SSL will automatically assign and install itself to your new and existing domains; however, depending on how your domain name is set up, there may need to be manual steps taken to ensure coverage.
Why use a paid SSL instead of the free one?
Depending on what you use your website for, it may make sense to install a higher level SSL certificate. With a paid certificate you have options for different levels of validation. The free SSL validates the domain name, but higher level paid SSL certificates will validate your ownership of the domain and business information. Paid certificates also come with more support and a warranty.
