Site5 Partners with Comodo for SSL

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Site5, a worldwide leader in shared, reseller, cloud, and VPS hosting, today began offering SSL Certificates through its new partnership with online security firm Comodo.

The new SSL certificates, which include free installation, are available to existing customers through Site5’s Backstage account management platform. Customers can choose from Comodo PositiveSSL, Comodo PositiveSSL Wildcard, or Comodo EV SSL. Each certificate includes 128/256 bit encryption, unlimited reissuances, a free site seal, and fast activation.

“Our customers have been asking Site5 to offer SSL certificates for some time. They trust us and we do not take that trust lightly. So we wanted to make sure we offered the right products at the right time in a manner that was easy for our customers to understand, purchase, and deploy. We strongly believe we have done that, and the response has been overwhelming,” said Tom Sepper, Chief Operating Officer, Site5.

Certificates purchased through Site5 offer by default 4096-bit RSA keys. The increased key length substantially improves the security of encrypted communications. However, 2048-bit and 1024-bit keys are still available to customers.

Site5 offers a wide range of hosting services, including shared, reseller, cloud, and VPS hosting. Based on a hosting philosophy that emphasizes performance through the most updated hardware platforms, a low ratio of customers to servers, and quality support, Site5 has grown substantially since its founding in 1999.

Each hosting plan from Site5 includes a wide variety of value-added features, including free website migration to Site5, nightly backups, the Backstage account management platform, SiteAdmin, and Easy Website Builder software. All plans also offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee, a 30-Day free trial, and a 45-Day Money Back guarantee.
