FREE SSL to ensure your website security
Mantra Web Hosting is pleased to offer our shared hosting customers free SSL certificates for all personal and business websites in partnership with Let’s Encrypt. An SSL Certificate will secure your website and your customer’s browser so all information they enter on any secured page is protected.
What is SSL?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard technology used to establish a secure encrypted connection between a browser (user’s computer) and a server (your website). The SSL connection is encrypted and secures sensitive data, including credit card information, logins, passwords, forms and all over data exchanged during each user visit (session).
Anyone can identify if a website is secure by looking at the browser address bar. If you see only HTTP this means the website does not have a certificate installed, if you see HTTPS this mean the website is secure and contains an SSL certificate.
GOOGLE LOVES SSL ON YOUR WEBSITE
Google recently announced the introduction of HTTPS as a factor in ranking websites for search engines. Websites with SSL encryption are now being favoured to appear in Google search results. With an SSL Certificate installed and connected to your domain name you will be giving your website a nice boost within Google ranking.
How do I put SSL on my website?
All Mantra Web Hosting customers will automatically have Let’s Encrypt SSL installed on all domain names in their hosting account. There’s no payment, no validation emails and your certificate will automatically renew every 90 days.
