SSL Certificates

Let's Encrypt

  • Secures your main domain and all of your subdomains, with and without www
  • Let's Encrypt certificates are short-lived to encourage automated renewal and to reduce the time any compromised certificates could be abused by an attacker
  • Initial setup and renewal are automated
  • If your website is a business that's processing credit cards or transmitting sensitive information, it's recommended that you add a paid certificate so you can assure the connection is valid and secure for your users


Encrypted communications
The communication between the server and the site visitors is made in clear text; consequently, an attacker can intercept communications and see passwords or private information inside the website. To secure your website, you need the HTTPS protocol and SSL certificates provided by Zooku, so that the communication between the server and the visitor's browser will be encrypted.

Guaranteeing identity
SSL certificates also guarantee the true identity of the website. The browser checks if the certificates are signed by a recognised certification authority; in this way, you can be assured that you are visiting the website you want and have not been directed elsewhere.

Is it dangerous without SSL?
Yes, if you have visitors who use email, your online store, or your site and they are connecting from a wireless, GSM, or neighborhood network, there is considerable risk. Online hackers can easily steal passwords from these users or alter the information in their accounts.
