Your customers expect you to secure their transactions with them and now look for the added peace of mind an SSL certificate provides them. If they are using https:// to connect to your website then they know that you care and that improves your credibility as a serious online business.

At HostFast We Give You a Free SSL Certificate

Your account comes with a free SSL certificate that offers industry-standard encryption and is acknowledged by leading web browsers.

So why would I need to pay for one?

While the free SSL certificates that we provide to all of our clients, there are several reasons why someone might consider upgrading to a paid SSL certificate:

  • Extended Validation (EV) Certificates: Paid SSL certificates often offer extended validation, which displays a green address bar in web browsers. This can help build trust and credibility with website visitors. If you are selling online then this would be an example of when to upgrade your SSL certificate.
  • Higher Warranty: Paid SSL certificates come with a higher warranty, providing financial protection in case of any security breaches or misissuance of the certificate.
  • Wildcard and Multi-Domain Support: Free SSL certificates typically cover a single domain, whereas paid certificates can provide wildcard support (covering all subdomains) or support for multiple domains under a single certificate.
  • Additional Features: Paid SSL certificates may offer additional features such as daily malware scanning, vulnerability assessments and priority customer support on secrurity issues.
  • Higher Assurance Level: Some industries or organizations require SSL certificates with higher assurance levels to meet compliance or regulatory standards.

Ultimately, the decision to upgrade to a paid SSL certificate depends on the specific needs and priorities of your website. While the free certificates we provide offer adequate security for many websites, paid options offer additional benefits and customization options for those who require them. If you are trading online such as an ecom store that you should probably be talking to us about an upgrade option.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)?

The Secure Sockets Layer protects data transferred over http using encryption enabled by a server's SSL Certificate. An SSL Certificate contains a public key and a private key. A public key is used to encrypt information and a private key is used to decipher it. When a browser points to a secured domain, an SSL handshake authenticates the server and the client and establishes an encryption method and a unique session key. They can begin a secure session that protects message privacy and message integrity.

Why are the certificates cheaper here than buying direct?

How long does it take to issue my SSL Certificate?

RapidSSL and GeoTrust® QuickSSL Premium SSL Certificates are issued within minutes, once you have signed up and completed payment you will receive an email to approve the issuance of the certificate. VeriSign® certificates require some business authentication information and certificate issuance normally takes 2-3 business days.

Do I need a dedicated IP Address?

Yes, an SSL certificate can only be installed if the domain has it's own IP address (dedicated IP) so please add the option when purchasing if you are a HostFast hosting client. If your hosting is with another company then you will need to ask them how to get a dedicated IP.

What is the Warranty?

We value our customers, so we provide a US$10,000 warranty on our RapidSSL, GeoTrust® QuickSSL Premium and VeriSign® Secure Site has a US$100,000 warranty. The warranty protects the end user if we mis-issue a certificate.
