Islandhosting is happy to announce that we now provide FREE SSL certificates from the Let’s Encrypt project.
You can request and install an SSL certificate for your domain that is recognised by all major browsers within 15 seconds with just a couple of clicks. Just log into your Islandhosting cPanel interface and look for this icon in the SECURITY section:
Having an SSL certificate installed for your web site allows all traffic to and from your web site to be encrypted, which not only boosts customer confidence, but it’s becoming more and more critical to search engine ranking.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit. Let’s Encrypt is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
Please note that Let’s Encrypt is itself still in BETA, so our support for them is too. But we’re already using their certificates on some of our personal projects and so far, so good!
