Why do I need an SSL (TLS) certificate?

Using an SSL (TLS) certificate on your website guarantees that every piece of data transferred between your users and your server is protected and unaltered. A TLS or SSL certificate is what enables connections to your website using https instead of http. Because SSL (TLS) certificates are a ubiquitous part of the modern web ecosystem, not using an SSL (TLS) certificate on your website might cause people to view your site as unprofessional, and could also pose a potential security risk. A free SSL certificate, then, also provides free https that helps to secure your website.

What is the free SSL Certificate that is included with every Simple Hosting plan?

Every Simple Hosting instance may include an unlimited number of free SSL certificates for free https on all your websites hosted at Gandi.

You can check if your free SSL certificate is working properly at any time, by just opening up your website in a modern web browser. If you see the "https" prefix instead of the non-secure "http", and a lock icon next to it, then your free SSL certificate is valid and correctly installed.

Our SSL certificates are also perfectly compatible with domain names with accented characters, like in languages such as French or German.
