Beginning July 2018, the new version of Chrome will mark all HTTP sites as ‘Not secure’ and prominently highlight this in the URL bar in an effort to create a more secure internet.
The information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate. When installed on a web server, a certificate will activate the padlock and the HTTPS protocol to allow secure connections from a web server to a browser. 452hosting now provides free SSL certificates for all assigned and parked domain names set up in your account.
AutoSSL is a cPanel feature that automatically installs and renews Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates for every assigned or a parked domain on a 452hosting account. In most cases, the SSL will automatically assign and install itself to your new and existing domains; however, some customers may need to manually enable the certificate.
