You can now secure your site with HTTPS using our free SSL certificates!

We’re very happy to announce that our Managed Hosting Packages now come with a free SSL Certificate. This is important because starting in 2017, Google will flag sites collecting data (like passwords or credit card info) that aren’t SSL certified. This is Google’s first step in red-flagging non-secure sites in order to protect web safety.

In addition to SSL affecting page-rankings, this big move directly impacts your SEO, site integrity, and conversion rates. See Google’s security blog for more info. For customer sites on HTTPS, we also enable HTTP/2, which has proven to improve site speed and search engine rankings.

Installing your free SSL certificate for your website is easy – send an email to with your request!
