GreenNet is offering our web hosting clients free upgrades to SSL - that is the security technology that encrypts communications between your browser and the website you're visiting. you can see it in action on the GreenNet website by looking for the padlock icon in the browser address bar, and the s in the https on our website URL.

We use the wonderful (& free!) Let's Encrypt to provide external verification of the authenticity of websites that we host, and we will happily add an SSL certificate to any website on our servers for free (if we haven't done so already! Please check as we've upgraded many sites that we host over the past year).

Having an SSL certificate is said to be favoured by the most popular search engines – that's what they say anyway, their algorithms are opaque. But we agree that SSL is an important tool in making the web secure, and we encourage everybody to take advantage of it, especially if your website gathers any personal data or financial transactions.

Please give us a shout if you'd like to know more.
