What Is SSL Hosting?
Whether you're running an online community, chat forum, guestbook or login area for your site visitors or clients, website security matters.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is used to encrypt and decrypt the information between browser and server, to ensure data transmitting over an open network cannot be intercepted and abused, meaning users can trust your site with their sensitive information. Used primarily when a website takes private and confidential information from users such as usernames, passwords and other personal data. With an SSL Security Certificate, you can assure yourself, your visitors and customers, that the best security is in place on your website.
Please note that no Freeola services may be used to transmit, store or process any card or payment details, however you can integrate a third-party payment provider such as PayPal, Sagepay, or Worldpay into your site.
How Do I Get SSL Hosting
Developed by renowned security experts GeoTrust, each RapidSSL Secure Certificate will work with a single domain name. If you don't already have your own domain name hosted with Freeola, you can buy domains from as little as £0.99 per year from, or take advantage of our to transfer your existing domains to Freeola and GetDotted.
Once you've purchased your SSL Certificate, our simple setup wizard will allow you to configure the certificate details in minutes, there is no paperwork required. You can setup your SSL Certificate to work with your domain name (e.g. example.com) or at a subdomain (e.g. secure.example.com). Once you've been through out simple setup wizard, you can just sit back and wait until we email you to confirm that your setup is complete (this usually take a few hours, but please allow up to two days).
Once you setup has been completed, you'll find a new secure folder within your webspace.
SSL Search Engine Optimisation Benefits.
SSL hosting is also beneficial to your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). As of late 2014 Google will now include whether or not sites are using SSL certificates in their search ranking algorithm, meaning that if your website has an SSL certificate, it could perform better on Google's SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages).
