Hello fellow ecommerce developers, designers, owners, or managers!
We're proud to transition all recurring customer SSL certificates, and new customer SSL certificates, to AutoSSL or Let's Encrypt. AutoSSL is a new option in the latest version of cPanel, which you can read about on their AutoSSL blog announcement. AutoSSL on our Liquidweb powered servers now have a signed certificate from Globalsign, which is fully validated in all browsers and works wonderfully on many of our websites. Soon, AutoSSL will support Let's Encrypt, which is another option for a free SSL certificate. Let's Encrypt is a free, automated, open certificate authority run for the public's benefit. The EFF, Cisco, Mozilla, and many other big names in the online technology space are involved with Let's Encrypt and many hosting companies are installing the option to one-click install free SSL's from Let's Encrypt by default on their customers cPanel/WHM.
Thanks for reading friends, and let us know if you need any assistance with setting up your free SSL for ecommerce websites. It's generally a painless process that takes less than 15 minutes to setup and less than 1 hour for it to be issued and working!
Remember to verify you have a fully secure padlock in your browser on all pages that take personal information and credit card details!! Check your browser console to see which files are loading insecurely, commonly we see images or third party scripts being the root cause of any broken ssl padlocks on checkouts.
