An SSL certificate encrypts all data transfer between your server and visitors, protecting financial and credit card transactions, login credentials, email content, and other sensitive information.
It’s an absolute must if you are accepting credit card transactions, but also recommended for all websites since it is an official ranking factor in Google’s search algorithm.
All hosting plans include free Let’s Encrypt Standard and Wildcard SSL certificates. For your convenience, the Standard SSL comes preinstalled on your site.
Having an SSL is more than just a best practice for websites, it’s an industry standard. SSL certificates protect the data transmitted through your site and make sure you meet the requirements of search engines that flag unsecured sites. It is mandatory for eCommerce sites and those that gather user data.
With the integration of Let’s Encrypt SSL, certificates can be issued and renewed automatically for sites hosted on our platform. All new sites hosted on our platform get the free Standard SSL enabled. Clients may switch to a free Wildcard SSL, please contact us to do so.
