Our SSL certificates

We provide free SSL certificates through Let’s Encrypt. These require you to use our free nameservers, which are based on the Google UK infrastructure. If you’d prefer to use different nameservers, you can use our Simple SSL certificates. We source both our Simple and Extended SSLs through Geotrust - one of the leading certificate authorities.

Extended SSL is the highest class of SSL available today. It lends more credibility and authority to your website compared to a Free or Simple SSL Certificate. Extended SSLs include ‘extended validation’. This is where checks are made on the company by the certificate authority. These help prove that the website’s owner is a genuine and legal company.

Only an Extended SSL activates the green address bar and displays the business name and registered country in the browser interface.

How an SSL certificate can help you...

Improve your ecommerce website

A highly encrypted SSL certificate will help you to take online payments securely without a third-party merchant, reducing your costs and increasing payment options for customers.

Studies have shown that consumers will often abandon online checkouts if the site doesn't appear secure. An SSL certificate gives your website visible, world-standard security credentials.

Safeguard visitor data

If you ask visitors for personal details, protect them with an SSL certificate; the data is scrambled to prevent any other parties getting access. Placing the GeoTrust ® True Site Seal on your page provides peace of mind for visitors whilst encouraging them to submit data knowing it is safe.

Store confidential information securely

Even if you are storing data rather than requesting it, an SSL certificate prevents data being intercepted when it is being accessed by authorised users.

If your site requires a log in for protected information, make it secure with SSL technology.
