We have noticed an increase in the number of clients wanting to setup Web Hosting SSL Certificates on their NZ website. This is mainly due to moves from Google, to allegedly rank secure websites using Web Hosting SSL certificates, better than those which don’t use SSL Certificates.
The good news is that all of our current NZ Web Hosting Plans will support Web Hosting SSL Certificates NZ.
Steps for installing Web Hosting SSL Certificates
To setup Web Hosting SSL Certificates on your website requires the following steps, and we can do all these steps for you:
- To purchase a new secure certificate for your domain (eg https://www.yourdomain.co.nz). Web Hosting SSL Certificates can normally be purchased for a 1, 2 or 3 year duration.
- The new SSL certificate will then need to be installed by our server techs, which has a setup cost.
- Web Hosting SSL Certificates require your web hosting to have dedicated IP. Dedicated IPs can be leased from us and have a monthly fee.
Setting up Web Hosting SSL Certificates can be confusing to the novice, however we can set this all up for you, eliminating the hassle.
One thing to note when purchasing a secure certificate, is the term you require it for. If you only purchase a 1 year certificate, and you want to ‘renew’ it when it expires, you must purchase a brand new SSL certificate. That new SSL certificate then must be installed again. So Web Hosting SSL Certificates cannot be simply ‘renewed’, as they have a set fixed term. So in many cases it can be better to buy a longer Web Hosting SSL Certificate if you are going to need it for an extended period of time.
