I’m pleased to announce that free SSL certificates are now available for all of our shared hosting customers, courtesy of cPanel’s AutoSSL feature. AutoSSL automatically provisions and configures certificates for domains which don’t already have them, meaning you never again need to spend time setting them up manually. Certificates are renewed automatically so you don’t even have to keep an eye on the expiration date!
AutoSSL has been enabled on our servers for a couple of weeks, and in most cases you should find that your website is already available over HTTPS, without you having to do anything to enable it. In some cases the automatic domain verification might have failed, though, so if your website isn’t working over HTTPS please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help you get it working.
AutoSSL certificates provide a good baseline level of security, and by offering this we’re happy to help improve security for all our customers. If you require more than this it’s still possible to buy and configure certificates manually.
