Israeli Hosting Company benefits from automated SSL reselling with OneClickSSL
Host4Site adopts OneClickSSL plugin for cPanel via the GlobalSign Partner Program
Singapore – October 20, 2011 - GMO GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com.sg),one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Partner Programs, today announced that Israeli hosting company Host4Site (www.host4site.co.il) is the latest company to join the GlobalSign Partner Program. The partnership will allow Host4Site's customers to secure their websites, online transactions, web mail and other next generation online services using the highly trusted GlobalSign SSL technology. Furthermore, Host4Site decided to implement the GlobalSign OneClickSSL technology for their cPanel server, allowing them to issue domain validated SSL Certificates at the click of a button and facilitating the adoption of the highest levels of security amongst its customer base.
Host4Site switched from another SSL provider to be able to add the most comprehensive and feature-packed range of SSL Certificates to its hosting portfolio. Host4Site customers can now benefit from all three types of SSL Certificates available today, including fast issuance Domain Validation SSL, traditional Organization Validation SSL and the standardised Extended Validation (EV) SSL, which activates the green address bar interface in the latest browsers. With SGC included as a standard, customisable certificate start and end dates, clickable site seals and unlimited server licenses, GlobalSign SSL delivers comprehensive benefits for Host4Site's customers in sectors such as fashion, ecommerce and the financial sector.
Host4Site have also implemented GlobalSign's revolutionary OneClickSSL technology, meaning that SSL Certificate provisioning can now be fully automated on cPanel, allowing them to mass issue SSL security to their customers without the added support enquiries. With OneClickSSL, Host4Site's customers can simply acquire a Secure Site voucher for the product and validity period of their choice which they redeem at a later stage through their cPanel platform. The redemption of the voucher launches the whole SSL provisioning process, as the plug-in will transparently create the CSR, validate the domain control, install the issued certificate and bind it to the appropriate website, without any involvement from the end user. This makes the process 10 to 15 times quicker than the traditional method of ordering a SSL certificate, allowing Host4Site to focus on their core business whilst still benefiting from the many advantages that reselling GlobalSign SSL Certificates can provide.
"We decided to exclusively sell GlobalSign SSL Certificates to meet the growing needs for SSL security in Israel, and to offer our customers a wide choice of products to meet their individual requirements at a competitive rate," says Gili Hassid, Host4Site spokesperson. "Our motto is 'all day every day, we are improving our systems, servers, software and hardware' and we feel that GlobalSign's Partner Program in combination with GlobalSign's OneClickSSL revolutionary technology is the perfect next step in our dedication."
"Host4Site is yet another example of a locally focused reseller choosing GlobalSign, which is underlining the ongoing success of our SSL Partner Program," says Paul Tourret, Managing Director, GMO GlobalSign Ltd. "With our innovative technologies, GlobalSign is adding more value and benefits than any other player in the market, enabling new improved security but at a lower cost to our customers."
