Zipa Hosting has a Let’s Encrypt integration, which means free SSL hosting and certificates for all of your sites. The certificate renewal process is completely automated, which in turn saves you money and time. You can literally make the switch within a click of a button. This is available from within your Zipa Hosting dashboard. If you have been thinking about moving to HTTPS, now is the time. Check out our steps in Knowledgebase on how to implement free SSL/TLS on your site.
DV (Domain Validation) certificates check that the organisation in question owns exclusive rights for using the domain name it wishes to receive the certificate for. This way, a digital certificate can secure data transferred between the website and its visitors.
The SSL certificate is now included in all Zipa Hosting's plans, and activates HTTPS protocol by default and for free - no technical skills are required. It is valid for 90 days, and will be renewed automatically without any action required from the user. HTTPS protocol is activated automatically when you create your subdomains./p>
A website that can be accessed in HTTPS not only secures the exchange of information - it also boosts your SEO ranking on search engines such as Google.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
Let's Encrypt is a domain validated (DV) SSL, which does not require any additional paper work to be validated, thus its ideal for any website or any domain name.
Let's Encrypt issuing and validation is basically instant, in comparison to normal SSL certificates which requires extra validation steps, or additional paperwork.
The Let's Encrypt SSLs do not come with any monetary insurance for e-commerce websites (which is typical for normal private SSL certificates) - which for most clients is not really a limitation.
No catch! All of us at Zipa Hosting are excited about this latest move toward a more secure Internet, and we want to share the tools with you.
