Los Angeles, CA (Gawkwire) October 24, 2011 – Certified Hosting, a specialist in shared web hosting, dedicated server hosting, and reseller hosting services, announced today the implementation of 1-Click GlobalSign SSL certificate provisioning available immediately through customer’s cPanel control panel software. By introducing this quick and easy method of obtaining security certificates, Certified Hosting demonstrates an ongoing commitment to Internet security, making it easier than ever for customers to offer robust and protected payment methods.
“With more and more customers turning to the online marketplace to purchase products and services, security is of upmost importance,” says Kacy Carlsen, co-founder and CEO of Certified Hosting. “Simply put, if you want to make money online, you need professional-level security in order to gain the trust of potential customers. We have been working to make GlobalSign SSL certificates available on-demand across all our unlimited web hosting plans, and are delighted to announce that customers can now source their certificates with just one click.”
SSL certificates are an industry standard in online security, used to reassure customers the authenticity and reliability of a vendor. In order to minimize the risk of data breach as private and personal details are transmitted from customers to servers, a secure, encrypted channel is opened, known as a Secure Socket Layer. An SSL certificate identifies those companies who make use of this specific data transfer method, containing domain names, owner or business names, and contact details to ensure full accountability and transparency in the event of data loss. While most customers looking to buy online will have little to no understanding of what SSL is or how this technology works, many of them routinely check for a “https://” domain prefix or padlock symbol before proceeding with payment.
“More than anything, SSL is about customer reassurance,” says Carlsen. “If a customer is going to make a purchase from you online, you need to remove every potential obstacle or cause for concern. People do not buy things when they are worried about the safety of their data – they go to a competitor who has the necessary certification in place. Our dedicated server hosting, shared hosting, and even tube site hosting users all need GlobalSign certificates to do business and increase revenue.”
Many firms who claim to offer secure web hosting or SSL web hosting use manual methods of distributing SSL certificates, which can result in long wait times for provision if demand is particularly high. In the meantime, businesses could miss thousands of potential customers as website visitors turn to more trusted competitors. Certified Hosting’s new automated method of deploying SSL certificates means that customers can obtain the certification they require in minutes, not hours, enabling them to begin processing payments almost immediately. The SSL certificates issued as part of Certified Hosting’s 1-Click service are provided by market leader GlobalSign for customers’complete peace of mind, confidence, and to dramatically increase sales.
“At Certified Hosting, we want to see our customers succeed,” says Carlsen. “We want every customer, from shared hosting to comprehensive dedicated server hosting customers, to become the best, most successful business they can be. At the end of the day, we want our customers to make money, and our automated provisioning of GlobalSign SSL licenses will help them to do that on their own terms, without waiting for us to fulfill their orders. Our customers can remain focused on growing their business, and we can remain focused on delivering reliable and consistently responsive unlimited web hosting.”
Since 1999, Certified Hosting has grown to become a leading web hosting provider by making the entire process of order placement and fulfillment effortless. Now, with the introduction of one-click GlobalSign SSL certificate provisioning, Certified Hosting is set to continue impressive growth.
