SSL Certificates

Pick up SSL certificates straight from your CP

In case you have an online shop, which accepts payments, it’s essential that you offer your clients a safe payment information submission section. And this is where SSL certificates come into play – they encrypt the connection between your website and the customer. Usually, you have to go to a third–party vendor to get an SSL. This isn’t the case with Bluff City Host.

With us, you’ll be able to enable a standard SSL certificate or even a wildcard SSL certificate straight through your Control Panel.
