At Rovity, we provide an A+ graded SSL certificate to make your website secured with HTTPS, FREE of cost.
You may know that SSL or TLS certificates are costly.
So, how can we give SSL certificates for free of cost?
Are we offering something is limited as a trade-off here?
An SSL certificate for your domain is considered a luxury due to its cost, until recently. Getting paid SSL certificates were costly, and still, it is.
But not more. It is FREE here and will be FREE forever.
Free SSL Certificate From Let’s Encrypt
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).
Let’s Encrypt typically issues more than 1.5 million certificates per day. They provide HTTPS certificates to over 225 million websites.
Why Let’s Encrypt’s Certificates Are Free?
We want to clarify that Rovity is a web hosting provider who requests, retrieves, and deploys SSL certificates from Let’s Encrypt, the Certificate Authority.
We do not provide any fee to Let’s Encrypt or any other parties involved in the process.
We have administrative and management costs which we are bearing ourselves. Let’s Encrypt do not charge a fee for their certificates.
Let’s Encrypt is a nonprofit; its mission is to create a more secure and privacy-respecting Web by promoting the widespread adoption of HTTPS.
Their services are Free, Automatic, Secure, Transparent, and Open.
It is easy to use so that every website can deploy HTTPS.
What Is the Difference Between a Free and Expensive SSL Certificate?
Certificate Authorities used to sell certificates for a wholesome amount of money until Let’s Encrypt launched and started issuing SSL Certificates for free.
Let’s Encrypt has faced many scrutinies and even hostility from companies who sell paid SSL certificates. Their resellers, who also make a vast amount of money out of it, were also part of this play.
That is obvious because the free SSL certificates offered by Let’s Encrypt kills the corporation’s business model that sells paid and expensive SSL certificates.
All Certificate Authorities must issue certificates by following the Baseline Requirements, a document set out by the CA/Browser Forum.
Baseline Requirements explains everything that a CA must do to validate the domain owner, the issued certificate’s validity, and many other restrictions. Any CA must adhere to these restrictions and guidelines during the issuance of certificates.
While fitting is not optional, there is no difference between a certificate issued with a fee or free mentioned in the Baseline Requirements.
Sales reps and resellers of paid SSL companies argue that the encryption by paid SSL Certificates is superior to the one issued free of cost.
Let’s be clear; Certificates have nothing to do with the encryption of data transmitted. Server configuration and not the certificate handle the encryption of data.
HTTPS is quickly replacing from being a good-to-have to a must-to-have.
SSL is not just for a big e-commerce website.
Even if your site is a static website that contains not even a contact form, you still need to have an SSL on your domain.
