With the recent rise in phishing scams and hacker’s attempts to steal personal information (such as Credit Card numbers, Addresses, Social Insurance Numbers (SIN), Social Security Numbers (SSN)) from websites, cyber security is on everyone’s mind, whether you are a cloud web hosting provider, a business selling products through an eCommerce website or a consumer shopping online using your credit card. According to The Definite Cyber Security Statistics Guide for 2020, “Cyber Fraud and Abuse Up 20% in Q1 2020 with 445 Million Attacks Reported”.

You may have come across an intercepted message from your internet browser (Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Opera, or any other web browser for that matter) telling you that the site connection you are going to visit is not secure – your alarm bells go off and you decide to leave the website – good decision!

On the other hand, websites that have well-established secure connections are usually accompanied by the popular padlock sign beside the website address on the address bar, a powerful secure connection message and shows a valid Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate (when clicked on the padlock). Having a valid SSL certificate for a website is so important that back in August 2014, Google announced it would rank websites with these certificates higher than their counterparts.

Did you know? Apart from the padlock icon on the web browser, secure connection websites and Web Hosting accounts addresses’ begin with https (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure), as opposed to only http for unsecure connection websites.

A lot of hosting providers sell these SSL certificates as an extra upsell to their clients, when they are offering hosting packages. Whereas most clients decide to go ahead with the purchase, some make the wrong choice of not opting in and therefore end up jeopardizing their website connection.

Full Web Solutions believes that the internet should be a safe place for everyone and whether to purchase an SSL certificate with your hosting plan or not should not even be an option.

That is why all of our Web Hosting plans come with automatic and Free SSL certificates. We believe user’s data such as personal information, addresses, and credit card numbers should be safeguarded and encrypted by intended recipient Uniform Resource Locator (URL), and should be protected against all phishing attempts from hackers. With all our hosting plans, you have one less thing to worry about and the added peace of mind goes a long way towards establishing your very secure online presence and website.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month and to raise awareness of the very important month, we are offering a FREE .com domain for the first year, on all our annual hosting plans that come fully equipped with automatic SSL certificates. This offer is only applicable to new customers. Already have a web hosting account elsewhere? You too could be eligible for this FREE .com domain offer for first year, on all our fully SSL equipped annual hosting packages. This is a limited time offer and will end once we receive enough registrations. Note, renewals processes at regular pricing (our prices are still far more affordable for the value you receive, compared to other companies).
