Let’s Encrypt is a fantastic free SSL certificate provider, up until recently you’ve had to pay for SSL certificates and manually update them every year. Not anymore! Evohosting is now fully compatible with Let’s Encrypt so you can simply open a ticket with us to get a free SSL for your domain name, no matter which hosting plan you have with us.
Here’s what to do:
Once installed you can login to your content management platform and adjust the site URL so it is set to https://yourdomain.com instead of http://yourdomain.com.
If you already have a premium SSL certificate with us, you can either keep it, or open a ticket when it’s due for renewal and we’ll switch you over to a Let’s Encrypt certificate. You can’t have both a premium AND Let’s Encrypt certificate for the same domain.
Let’s Encrypt relies heavily on donations from the public, please consider helping them cover their operating costs – for more information please visit them here: https://letsencrypt.org/
