In the past installing SSL certificates used to be a costly and complex exercise. But now, we offer free SSL with every domain you host with us – no configuration required.
What is SSL certificate?
An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate to authenticate the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server. When installed on a web server, it shows the lock icon and the https protocol, this ensures secure connections from your website to the web browser. Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit to make encrypted connections the default standard throughout the internet. Previously, installing SSL certificates was expensive and complicated. However, with Let’s Encrypt, Red Cactus now offers free (Domain Validation) SSL with every website – no configuration required.
Why do you need a SSL certificate?
SSL is essential for any website that sells goods and services or captures sensitive content, as it ensures that all information handled stays private and secure.
Customers visiting your website will know that you have encryption in place with “https” and a padlock icon appearing in the browser’s address bar – an added level of assurance that their information is safe.
Great for SEO
Google takes online security seriously and considers SSL certificates on a website as a positive search engine optimisation (SEO) ranking signal. This means that if your website uses SSL you stand a greater chance of ranking higher than your competitors.
