Lets Encrypt is an automated SSL certificate that can be used to protect both your website and email.
Lets Encrypt is provided FREE of charge to all of our Pay Monthly Hosting customers, whereas other service providers charge anything from tens of pounds, up to hundreds of pounds for an SSL certificate.
This ensures that any information exchanged between your web browser and your website and information exchanged between your email client and our mail server is encrypted for your privacy and security.
Typically, SSL certificates can cost up to hundreds of pounds depending upon the type of certificate you want to use but we have included this in your cPanel account FREE of charge.
It is also worth noting that since 2014 Google websites that use an SSL certificate have been been ranked higher in their search results. So if you want to improve your rankings in Google it is worth installing an SSL certificate on your site.
