Customers get a FREE SSL

  • July 19, 2018 by iEdit Network Admin

All iEdit Network hosting packages are eligible for Free SSLs on all domains that are hosted within the hosting account and pointed by A record. This includes all cPanel hosting and reseller packages.

We are currently progressing through all servers to ensure this addition is completed progressively and methodically due to the volume of domains hosted across the iEdit Network. We expect this process to be completed in the coming weeks, well before Chrome browser changes in late July. If you have not yet received your Free SSL, stand by as it should be coming soon!

The Free SSL lasts for 90 days from issuance and renews automatically at no cost to you so your site hosted with the iEdit Network should never be without an SSL.

What do I have to do once I get the Free SSL?

Once the Free SSL is installed, you likely will still need to direct your visitors to HTTPS to ensure they are using the most secure path to access your site.

If you do have an existing paid SSL certificate installed it will not be affected and will remain active. Any expired paid SSL certificate will automatically convert to the Free SSL if the domain has not opted-out.

Note: The Free SSL will not come with any warranty or site logo. For these features, the Free SSL must be upgraded to a Positive or EV SSL Certificate.
