SSL Certificates from DigiCert

By Sean / September 30th, 2022

Cybercrime costs victims billions of dollars each year. Studies have shown that 43% of cyber attacks are targeted at small businesses, though unfortunately only 14% of those businesses are prepared to defend themselves against the attacks.

This very reason is why websites must be protected via SSL certificates. Our partnership with DigiCert was formed in 2017 and we've been evolving our SSL offerings ever since. DigiCert allows us to provide WHMCS-powered web hosts full end-to-end SSL automation within MarketConnect.

Your customers expect the best in website security, and you can provide it!

Digital Trust
Digital trust allows consumers to engage online with confidence, and is based on three elements: strong encryption for transmitted data, assurance that the data has not been tampered with, and identity authentication on the receiving server. An essential component to all of this is an SSL certificate.

But not all SSL certificates are created equal. For example, free certificates obtained with minimal validation are often used for fraudulent websites; legitimate websites avoid using such certificates.

SSL Certificates from DigiCert via MarketConnect
We proudly offer multiple SSL solutions for your customers, from leading SSL brands from Digicert including RapidSSL and GeoTrust. SSLs via MarketConnect include:
  • Instant setup and activation
  • Ready-made landing pages
  • Fully automated issuance
  • Integrated upsells and promotions
And much more, like the ability to automatically populate your SSL products based on the certificates you choose to sell and integrated management for all aspects of certificates without leaving WHMCS. You can even offer your customers the ability to switch between competing SSL providers quickly and easily.

Our automatic provisioning and installation technology allows your customers to purchase and install an SSL certificate with just a few clicks!

New SSL Features
As of 2022, you can now offer additional features and flexibility to your customers, such as:
  • Multi-year certificates - these SSLs can be issued for 2 or 3 years.
  • Automated reissuance - this fully automates the reissuance and reinstallation of SSL certificates.
  • SSL site seals - site seals help establish trust, and the code to add this seal to a website is now available directly within the WHMCS Client Area.
More Great Features on the Way
Coming soon is a very exciting new feature: instant issuance. When launched, SSL via MarketConnect will provision and install SSL certificates even faster, reducing wait time mere seconds after an order is placed! Keep an eye out for this great new feature and more.
