Get Ready Nerds! Certified Hosting Adds One Click Ssl Certificates To Nerd Unlimited Hosting Plans

By CertifiedHosting 10/26/2011

What keeps your potential customers from clicking that magic Complete Order button? If you ever wondered that, you should know the top reason is trust, or better said, lack thereof. People are wary of putting their hard-earned money on the line, and they have every reason to be! Phishing schemes, hacked websites, key-loggers, identity theft – the darker side of the Internet is more visible than ever. You can’t blame people for not handing over their money, even if you’re the most honest person in the world. Would you trust a complete stranger with your credit card?

Just like in real-life we rely on IDs and other official documents to see if a person is trustworthy, the Internet has  a mechanism for proving that a website is genuine – SSL certificates. Now, if you’ve been doing any kind of business online, you at the very least know that websites with SSL certificates display a green padlock icon near the address bar of the browser. That padlock tells visitors that the site can be trusted and it’s safe for business.

You also probably know that getting an SSL certificate is a major hassle. Well, it used to be. Our new One Click SSL certificates let you verify your website with… you guessed it, one click!

One Click SSL takes the pain out of provisioning SSL certificates

Provisioning SSL certificates has been a notoriously slow and cumbersome process ever since the early days of the World Wide Web. In many aspects, the process has remained unchanged from the 90s.

To break things down and explain things further on how you typically create a SSL certificate, you first create a “key,” or Certificate Signing Request (CSR) in geek-speak, which contains information about your company and your website. The key also holds a cryptographic value used to encrypt the certificate so hackers can’t tamper with it. Then, you submit an application to a Certificate Authority (CA), a trusted company that issues certificates. The CA checks the CSR and validates your submission. If everything goes smoothly, the certificate is issued and the information is sent to you by email. You then have to install the certificate on your website and test it to ensure that everything went down OK. That’s a lot of steps.

Unfortunately, the process offers plenty of opportunities for things to go wrong. The CSR can be faulty, the CA might reject your application for various reasons, emails get lost in Spam folders, and so on. In order to obtain and deploy an SSL certificate in this manner, you need significant technical knowledge and a healthy dose of patience.

Sounds complicated? We think so too. This is why we are offering One Click SSL certificates with any Nerd unlimited hosting plan.
