BALTIMORE – Speedify.tech recently announced that it developed new software ‘FreeSSL.tech Auto’ to help web designers, businesses and laymen add the “Secure” status of an SSL certificate to their website. Using a simple download, businesses can comply with Chrome 70 SSL certificate requirements without having to outsource the costly help of additional technical experts.
Removing the glaring “Not Secure” status message from websites’ address bars has become an urgent priority for many businesses and online retailers. The recent shift in Chrome opened an entire market of predatory “experts” who charge exorbitant fees to offer a relatively easy fix. In response, the web designers and developers of Speedify.tech created a free and simple way for businesses to comply with Google Chrome’s certificate requirements.
FreeSSL.tech offers ‘A Let’s Encrypt client/app’ that is written in PHP. “The app completes the automation of a free SSL certificate in shared hosting, renewing and installing that certificate quickly and without need of additional tech help. All that is required is a web browser, the software download and a few minutes.” said Anindya Sundar Mandal, Lead Developer of FreeSSL.tech.
This SSL Certificate app:
- Works with shared hosting.
- Requires no root access.
- Requires no command line expertise.
- Works with a friendly administrator’s dashboard.
- Is installed and configured using a browser.
- Is mobile responsive. Users can efficiently manage its functions using a mobile phone.
- Is completely free of cost, with no obligations.
There are some minimum system requirements necessary to use the software, including:
- Linux hosting: cPanel or any other control panel (this client is NOT compatible with Windows hosting).
- PHP 5.4 and up.
- MySQL 5 or MariaDB 10.
- OpenSSL extension.
- Curl extension.
- MySQLi extension.
- PHP directive allow_url_fopen = On
- An SSL installation feature enabled for cPanel accounts (for automatic installation of a free SSL Certificate).
Speedify.tech also maintains a free video tutorial HERE (https://freessl.tech/video) for those who would like a simplified walk-through.
Secure status has always been an important feature for websites that take credit card information, but that is no longer the sole reason for businesses to add a certificate to their sites. Google Chrome rates sites “Not secure” if they ask for any type of user content: passwords, emails, etc. And after the recent July 2018 update, Chrome now marks any site “Not secure” that does not have a certificate.
Finally, starting October 16, 2018, Chrome begins marking uncompliant HTTP websites as “Not secure” with a bright red warning color whenever users start to type in information, immediately alerting users to that site’s status. Businesses that do not add a “Secure” status soon may find themselves losing customers.
