It has come to our attention that Google's Chrome browser has recently started to warn visitors browsing any website that is not protected by an SSL certificate, of that site being somehow "not secure". As a result of this we are now receiving an influx of customers wanting to purchase and install SSL certificates on their websites.

An SSL certificate is used to encrypt data between the site visitor's browser and the website, most commonly in the event of the site visitor filling out an order form or making a payment. This encryption stops that sensitive data being intercepted by a third party. Technically speaking, it is absolutely not necessary to install an SSL certificate on your website unless you are taking personal or financial information from your site visitors.

Unfortunately, due to the warning in Chrome, there currently seems to be fairly widespread panic from website owners, concerned about their websites not seeming to be secure. People are now clambering to get their sites SSL enabled.

We are in a position to be able to offer our customers a greatly discounted SSL certificate that will cover all domains and subdomains in your account at the very low cost of only £7.99 +VAT per year. This works out at roughly 80p per month. If you have multiple domains in your hosting plan, these are all covered for the one price. This is a 256-bit domain validated SSL certificate that is issued by the certificate authority "Comodo" and is compatible with all browsers.

So if you are one of the many who are concerned about making sure your site is SSL enabled, but you don't want to spend a fortune, you can purchase this low cost option Here

We are still selling our more expensive AlphaSSL certificate at £26.67 +VAT which covers only a single domain but comes with a clickable site seal logo. This can be purchased Here

We can also offer you free help and advice in getting your site working with SSL, so please feel free to contact us with any questions.
