New! Free SSL for all users
Aug 15, 2022
We are pleased to announce that we have recently implemented free SSL certificates for all accounts.
SSL is provided by LetsEncrypt and will be installed automatically for both the free StoreMantis subdomains and custom domains.
This saves StoreMantis merchants the additional cost of purchasing an SSL certificate every year.
What is an SSL certificate?
An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates a website's identity and enables an encrypted connection. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a security protocol that creates an encrypted link between a web server and a web browser. Companies and organizations need to add SSL certificates to their websites to secure online transactions and keep customer information private and secure. In short: SSL keeps internet connections secure and prevents criminals from reading or modifying information transferred between two systems. When you see a padlock icon next to the URL in the address bar, that means SSL protects the website you are visiting.
