Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority (CA), run for the public’s benefit. It is a service provided by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). It gives people the digital certificates they need in order to enable HTTPS (SSL/TLS) for websites. The key principles behind Let’s Encrypt are:
- Free: Anyone who owns a domain name can use Let’s Encrypt to obtain a trusted certificate at zero cost.
- Automatic: Software running on a web server can interact with Let’s Encrypt to painlessly obtain a certificate, securely configure it for use, and automatically take care of renewal.
- Secure: Let’s Encrypt will serve as a platform for advancing TLS security best practices, both on the CA side and by helping site operators properly secure their servers.
- Transparent: All certificates issued or revoked will be publicly recorded and available for anyone to inspect.
- Open: The automatic issuance and renewal protocol will be published as an open standard that others can adopt.
- Cooperative: Much like the underlying Internet protocols themselves, Let’s Encrypt is a joint effort to benefit the community, beyond the control of any one organization.
We provide custom hosting packages based upon your needs and budget. Our commodity is bandwidth and disk-space. Other web-hosting places like to sell you a plan based on disk-space alone. Then you have to share your bandwidth with every other domain on the server. If just a few websites start getting heavy traffic, then everybody grinds to a halt if the server has not been built to handle super traffic.
Your Bandwidth Belongs to You.
We have divided our bandwidth into parcels, never overselling it, but giving you a dedicated slice of the pie. Once a domain has reached its bandwidth limit, it can do no more unless another slice is allocated to it. This is great for everybody else on the server because they will always have the bandwidth that they need. We receive system alerts whenever a domain's bandwidth usage looks like it will exceed their quota for the month. This will allow us to contact you and determine if this is an anomaly or if you will actually need a bigger bandwidth plan.
Bandwidth is Not Expensive. It's Just Dedicated.
Relax. Bandwidth is not expensive. We just want to make certain that nobody suffers due to someone else's good fortune. Good fortune? Of course. If you are getting a significant increase in traffic than that is generally good news. It is not so good if your website cannot handle the extra traffic, and it is not good if the other sites on the server suffer for it, either.
If you plan on launching a big advertising campaign and you expect millions of visitors, give us a heads up and we can make the additional bandwidth available on-demand for short or long term.
