Why we offer
SSL for free.
with just a few clicks.
Most of us send contact details, passwords or payment information to websites several times a day. Without SSL encryption, this data is completely vulnerable to potential abuse. As the leading web hosting provider in Switzerland, we want to do our part to make the internet a more secure place. Which is why we offer a Symantec Secure Site Starter SSL to all Hostpoint customers – free of charge! Enable FreeSSL and do your part to create a secure internet.
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. This technology creates a secure connection between your website and the web browser of the person visiting your site. From this point on, all sensitive data is encrypted before transfer via this connection, meaning that it cannot be viewed or used by others.
FreeSSL is designed for use by private individuals. If you run a business, an SSL certificate with additional company verification offers a major advantage – and is simply a must for online shops that accept payments by credit card. Show your visitors that their data is safe with you and that the website is actually run by your company rather than some fake one. A certificate from GeoTrust or Symantec provides security and confidence – and will help you achieve even more interactions and sales transactions.
Hostpoint FreeSSL supports this and many other web browsers
As an SSL-encrypted website, the certificate improves your web presence and reinforces
