Lots of folks are updating their blogs and websites to use SSL and HTTPS — Google will basically require this moving forward for all websites that want to maintain their search rankings and avoid browser warnings in Chrome. But did you know web hosting with FREE SSL gives you this capability now without paying a single extra cent?
If your web hosting provider insists that you have to BUY an SSL certificate from them, you don’t. Say NO!
Here’s what you need to know to understand HTTPS and SSL, and how to get this on your blog or website without paying anything extra, ever. Read on…
Everyone Can Get Web Hosting With Free SSL and HTTPS Right Now
There’s a non-profit — supported by Mozilla, Facebook, SiteGround, Cisco, Shopify and others — called “Let’s Encrypt” that provides free SSL certificates. Those certificates — often called “certs” — work with all modern web browsers with NO warnings and NO errors.
The only caveat is your web hosting provider needs to support Let’s Encrypt. More and more hosts are providing this capability — but some of the big hosting companies are refusing so they can rip you off.
If your web hosting company refuses to support Let’s Encrypt it’s because they want to sell you expensive certs that you don’t need. It’s outrageous since that means they’re taking advantage of their customers instead of taking care of their customers.
It doesn’t cost them anything to provide the free Let’s Encrypt certificates and it doesn’t cost them anything to put those free SSL certificates on their servers — so those companies are simply ripping you off!
If your web hosting company only offers expensive paid SSL certificates, say NO!
