April 30, 2019
Web host A2 Hosting is offering a new range of SSL certificates. Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States, A2 Hosting was established in 2003 and offers PHP and Windows hosting optimized for Open Source Content Management Solutions (CMSs) like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. Alongside shared, reseller, dedicated and Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting options, the company specializes in managed WordPress services. A2 Hosting’s new SSL certificates are designed to enhance visitor trust, improve SEO rankings, and boost website security.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates leverage the HTTPS protocol and encrypt the connection between a server and a browser. This blocks attempts by third-parties to hijack any internet/browser connection. SSL certificates are extremely important for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) with engines like Google penalizing sites that do not use an SSL domain.
With an SSL certificate a domain such as http://yourdomain.com/ changes to https://yourdomain.com/. A2 Hosting’s SSL options include ‘Single Site SSL’, ‘Premium SSL’, ‘Wildcard SSL’ and ‘Advanced SSL’ certificates designed for ecommerce sites. A2 Hosting uses established SSL brands including Symantec, RapidSSL, GeoTrust, and Sectigo. There certificates are easy to install and maintain and users get access to ‘A2 Hosting's Guru Crew Support Team’.
"The wide range of our SSL certificate options makes setting up your website and doing business on day one easier than ever," explained Brad Litwin, Marketing Manager at A2 Hosting. "It's another way we are innovating the web hosting space and helping our clients increase visitor trust and search engine traffic as well as strengthening website security."
