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.
We’ve got a lot of exciting new features and updates to announce over the next few months, and first up is…
That’s right, all customers with WP NET Managed Cloud VPS servers can now use SSL on their websites at no cost! You never need to bother with generating CSR’s, processing renewals or installing certificates … ever! It’s all completely automated.
New and existing Managed Cloud VPS customers can start using FreeSSL right now. For details on how to activate FreeSSL on your Cloud VPS websites, please see our KnowledgeBase article. (Note: you must login to the My WP NET customer portal to view the article)
