Why is it Free?
We offer free Unlimited SSL Certificates from the Let's Encrypt certificate authority, which is founded and sponsored by multiple global industry bodies and companies, including Cisco Systems, the Mozilla Foundation, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Akamai Technologies.
These SSL Certificates are just as secure and supported to the the same level as our premium certificates, and are ideal for independent developers, SMEs and e-commerce websites.
What are the Drawbacks?
There really aren't any. We offer Premium SSL Certification for customers who prefer our alternative SSL supplier GlobalSign. GlobalSign also have "seals" or "trust badges" you can display on your website to showcase some authority and an extra level of security.
