Nitrado offers a fully automatic and free integration of Let's Encrypt certificates on web spaces

A secure internet is something we all need for many reasons. Here at Nitrado, we aim to help you provide this. Proving Identity is a basic requirement for secure websites on the internet. You may commonly recognize this as "HTTPS" or "SSL certificates". Certificates are in place so websites can prove their identity. Your favorite hosting platform now helps you secure your web space!

What are certificates?

Certificates (or more precisely, SSL certificates) are used in the communication between the browser and the web server when connected via HTTPS. The certificate contains information that the browser can use to verify that the delivered data actually comes from the domain it requested. Without this mechanism, it is theoretically possible for an "attacker" to hook into the connection between the browser and the web page. allowing them to see or even change the exchanged data. This is particularly critical when communicating confidential information such as passwords over the connection.

Applying for a certificate for your own domain is usually a complex process and involves high costs. Thanks to the initiative of Let's Encrypt, there is now a free alternative to receive your own certificate. On top of that, Nitrado provides a fully automated Let's Encrypt integration, which makes the otherwise complicated process a breeze - and at no extra charge!
