, a provider of Shared, Reseller, and Virtual Private Server Web hosting for businesses and individuals, announced today it has added 128 bit SSL certificates on all servers at no additional charge to clients.
With the SSL certifies clients can now more securely manage their hosting accounts without worrying about the privacy of transmitted data or if they are connecting to the wrong server. SSL certificates also carry insurance to cover against certain losses.
Although we have always enabled our clients to manage their hosting accounts through the SSL protocol, we now enable them to do so backed by the protections and guarantees of a signed SSL certificate from a world-class vendor, said Mike Noman, 2MHost owner. The vast majority of hosting providers simply self-sign their SSL certificates, but we have made the investment in 3rd party certificates to offer an extra level of assurance for our users.
The SSL certificates will provide greater security in managing hosting accounts through cPanel/WHM and FTP (Secure FTP). Additionally, clients can now use encrypted connections to download and send email through SSL-protected POP3 (Post Office Protocol), SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocal), and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol).
Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a cryptographic protocol that offers security and data integrity for communications over TCP/IP networks. SSL certifies are digitally signed and assigned to an individual server to assure its identity over an SSL connection.
