Resellers – How to enable Let’s Encrypt on WHM

Putting in place an SSL certificate is vital if you want to protect your customers and maintain or improve your search engine ranking. Google recently announced that they will be marking all sites without an SSL certificate as insecure.

As a reseller, you should ensure that all your customers are aware of the need to have an SSL in place and to discuss their options:

1. Free SSL in the form of Let’s Encrypt – these are ideal for low traffic sites that are not ecommerce stores. They do not have any sort of warranty.

2. An SSL from GlobalSign, which start from £15 per year and include a warranty. This makes them ideal for sites that have greater traffic volumes or ecommerce stores. The warranty enables the individual to submit a claim, should they suffer any losses as a result of an SSL failure. These can be purchased here and our support team will install for you.
