We have been banging on for years about the benefits of SSL certificates and encryption for web traffic and email. Now, for the first time, we can offer this at a reasonable cost to our older websites, which we host with Jolt Hosting.
If you’re one of our Jolt-hosted clients, you can now have SSL installed on your site for a £25 one-off set-up fee plus £25 per year.
Why might you want to do this?
Well, an SSL certificate shows visitors to your website that you are serious about their security and privacy, and also is considered necessary for the GDPR compliance of your website and – especially email.
There are other advantages too, for example, with your Google rankings. We wrote a blog post about the advantages of SSL (and disadvantages of NOT having it) a few years ago – here it is.
If you’re interested in upgrading to SSL, contact us by opening a support ticket.
Of course most of our client sites, which we host with SiteGround, already have already been able to use free SSL Certificates as standard for the past 5 years.
*SSL is only available for WordPress website clients.
