Few years ago, Google announced that it will penalize domains that do not use encryption. The announcement is part of a move to increase security and awareness to security of thousand of transactions and identity exchange on the internet. While most of the large traffic websites have already moved their online services to protected TSL environments, most of small website and service providers have constraint due to certificate costs.
Well, good news! Let's Encrypt, a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG), has decided to challenge the problem and provide free Security Certificates. Just two days ago, Let's encrypt received cross-signatures from IdenTrust, which means that their certificates are now trusted by all major browsers.
In support of this movement, Host.al will start to advertise the use of Let's Encryp certificates starting December 1st, 2015.
We invite all the customer of our Business Hosting to contact us for their free solution! As the certificate requires a dedicated IP, we will still have to charge the monthly fee of 1€ for each IPv4, while allowing anyone to use free SSL on our IPv6 range.
