Caro Creative can now offer Free SSL certificates in partnership with our favorite WordPress host, WP Engine. The specialist WordPress hosting platform has now added the ability to easily set-up certificates with Let’s Encrypt, a free, automated, and open certificate authority that provides digital certificates, for free.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority, run for us all to benefit from. It is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
They give people the digital certificates they need in order to enable HTTPS (SSL/TLS) for websites, for free, in the most user-friendly way possible. They do this because they want to create a more secure and privacy-respecting Web.
Installing the SSL certificate is just the first part of the process for making your website fully SSL-compliant. If you want to have a go yourself please ready my blog post “How to add SSL and HTTPS to your WordPress website” before you do so. If you get stuck please get in touch. I’ll be more than happy to help out.
*Please note: You have to have a WordPress website hosted with Caro Creative on my WP Engine servers to qualify for the free SSL certificate.
