Dedicated SSL Certificates

SSL certificates protect you and your website visitors when transmitting sensitive data like website passwords and payment information. We provide a free shared SSL certificate for all of our hosting clients, but sometimes a website needs its own (i.e. "dedicated") SSL certificate. This certificate allows you to safely and professionally encrypt your website traffic with a secure URL such as https://www.yourdomain.com.

The following certificates include free installation on our servers:

PositiveSSL ($95/yr)

  • Cost-effective SSL certificate with easy validation
  • Domain validation
  • 256-bit encryption
  • 99.9% browser compatibility
  • $10,000 relying party warranty
  • Unlimited re-issuance policy
  • Site Seal included

PositiveSSL Wildcard ($295/yr)

  • Cost-effective, securing multiple subdomains with one certificate
  • Domain validation
  • 99.9% browser compatibility
  • $10,000 relying party warranty
  • Unlimited re-issuance policy
  • Site Seal included

Dedicated IP Address: $60/yr

All dedicated SSL certificates require a dedicated IP address for your hosting account. Billed annually.

Installation of Third-Party SSL Certificates: $35

If you have a Handmade Designs hosting account and purchased your certificate from a different company, just send us the certificate (or send us the login access where we can download it) and we will install it on your Handmade Designs hosting account. Typically, a fresh installation is required each year.

Please contact us with your request and we will help set up your certificate right away!
