SSL certificates are most commonly used to secure connections to websites for the transmission of sensitive information such as user logins, credit card details, etc. and to guarantee the authenticity of the website in question.
In order to provide your website users with a secure, encrypted HTTPS connection that also provides webserver authenticity you will need a signed SSL certificate.
In the past these certificates were very expensive, costing hundreds or even thousands of pounds, but at Farbyte we have secured a service that enables you to purchase a secure, signed SSL certificate from industry leading providers Geotrust and Comodo for as little as £12.99 per year!
That's not a typo, it really is less than £15 per year.
Please note that if you are using shared web hosting, you will also require a dedicated IP in order to install your SSL certificate. If your shared hosting is with Farbyte, we will provide help and support with installing your certificate into your web hosting account, or on your VPS. Simply raise a support ticket and let us know you need some help.
