    Price Drop on AutoSSL plans!

    - by GB

    Starting today, all WP NET Managed WordPress hosting plans include support for FreeSSL AutoSSL.

    Update 19 August: We’ve decided to rename our FreeSSL feature to AutoSSL!

    All customers on MWP2 servers are now able to install Let’s Encrypt certificates and convert their site to use the https:// prefix.

    This move is largely in response to recent changes in many of the major web browsers and how they display non-HTTPS websites. You may have heard recently that the Google Chrome browser will now display “insecure” in the address bar when viewing any site using HTTP. These changes are further driving the move towards SSL / TLS encryption for all websites.

    Effective today, the Starter + SSL hosting plan is retired and all customers on that plan have been crossgraded to Starter 1GB. All customers who were previously on the Starter + SSL plan will have their next account reduced to the $29 per month ($319 per year) price.

    Converting your site to HTTPS

    Converting your site is pretty straightforward, just login to the Plesk Panel, go to the Security Advisor and follow the steps to install a Let’s Encrypt certificate and convert your site to use the https:// prefix.

    If you need any assistance or need more information, please see Using WordPress with SSL in our Knowledgebase or contact WP NET Support and we’ll be happy to help.

    FreeSSL now available in Managed Server Control Panel

    - by GB

    We’ve recently deployed an update to our Managed Cloud Server Control Panel that adds support for managing FreeSSL (Let’s Encrypt) Certificates from directly within the Control Panel.

    This means that all our Managed Cloud Server customers can now instantly apply SSL Certificates to their sites with the click of button. With this new addition — and considering the performance and SEO benefits of running sites with SSL — we recommend that all Cloud Server sites run under SSL.

    More information, and complete instructions for using the Cloud Server Control Panel are available in our WP NET KnowledgeBase.
