SSL Certificates as little as FREE!

 

The term SSL (short for ‘secure socket layer’) describes a technique for encrypting and authenticating data traffic on the internet. In short, it secures (encrypts) your clients’ browsing of your website which prevents hacking and eavesdropping.

What we offer is a list of benefits that add value to authorized Let’s Encrypt certificates:

  1. We’ll perform due diligence in Domain Validation to make sure the site is registered by someone with admin rights to the site.
  2. We use only internationally trusted Certificate Authorities which are third parties that guarantees the Digital Certificate’s authenticity.
  3. Order the proper 2048-bit encrypted certificate compatible with our servers
  4. We custom configure and install the certificate on your account so you don’t have to worry about the technical details.
  5. You’ll receive free support for the life of your certificate
  6. Automatic renewals of your certificate each year.
  7. Help you revoke the certificate if that ever becomes necessary.
  8. Insurance option: For $99/year we’ll install a certificate backed up by a $500,000 warranty.
  9.  We are happy to install 3rd party certificates but there is a $5 fee each time it is renewed.

How to make use of your SSL certificate

After the certificate is installed, all links within your site should be changed to use https (the “s” is for secured) from http. If you’re using WordPress, this is done fairly easily in WordPress by changing the site URLs under the “Settings” tab in the WordPress Dashboard. If your site is straight HTML, then you can do a search and replace of all the internal links within your site.

Forcing https

We can also add the following code to your account .htaccess file which will force your site to use https throughout.

# Force https on all links for SSL cerfificate
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R,L]

Secured Email

Once installed, the certificate also works to secure your email. The recommended settings for your email program will automatically change within your control panel. To see the new recommended settings, log into your control panel and click on the Email accounts icon. To the right of each email box name there  will be link that reads, “Configure Email Client”. There you’ll find the new recommended settings for your email application to send and retrieve your settings securely.
