SSL Certificates

swooshyssl

An SSL Certificate allows your website to be more secure - the connection between your server and your website's visitors is encrypted. (You can know it's in place when you see https instead of http in the address, and most browsers will also show a small lock icon next to 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, you may want to consider purchasing a standard 1-year term SSL Certificate for your website.

Why use a paid SSL instead of the free one?

Recently there have been more and more instances where certificates installed via the free AutoSSL service become corrupted or fail to renew, leaving a site less protected. (In most cases this ends up meaning that a browser shows a "not secure" warning to someone trying to visit the site.) Purchasing an SSL is a more guaranteed way of ensuring your website is secure.

Depending on what you use your website for, it may also make sense to install a higher level SSL certificate. (This is not an essential step for the majority of small business websites.) A basic 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.

PLEASE NOTE:

The downside is that the standard SSL does NOT cover subdomains, just the top level primary domain. Most people don't actively use any custom subdomains, but there are always a few subdomains relevant to every website. For example, if your domain is mydomain.com, then two common subdomains that will exist are mail.mydomain.com and cpanel.mydomain.com. 

Depending on your situation, this may or may not matter. We are currently looking into some additional options to provide, and will update this page as those become available.
