Why SSL is important?
We are excited about this latest move towards a more secure web by offering free website protection for your sites’ end-to-end user data. Security is a priority and it is always going to be a concern when it comes to the Internet and digital communication.
HTTPS vs HTTP
Google has recently announced that they plan to label all HTTP pages as non-secure in 2017. The change will affect certain unsecured web pages that feature entry fields for sensitive data, such as passwords and credit/debit card numbers.
Increase Google Rankings
Google is giving priority to HTTPS sites in rankings. Websites using HTTPS, secure and encrypted connections are starting to rank slightly higher than HTTP websites because of the new HTTPS ranking signal in the search algorithm.
What’s included in Free SSL certificate?
Let’s Encrypt certificates are standard Domain Validation certificates, functionally identical to any certificate you'd spend money for elsewhere. You can use them for any server that uses a domain name, like web servers. Svenska Domaner Stockholm offers complete integration of free Let's Encrypt SSL certificates to its hosting packages. Certificates are only valid for 90 days, after which they need to be renewed. Luckily we have automated this process into our platform to ensure that our customers will never worry about expiration or renewal of the certificate.
