I bet the SSL is a letsencryped cert - which in reality is free already.
Got myself a free package last week and yes it's a LetsEncryp cert.I bet the SSL is a letsencryped cert - which in reality is free already.
+1Still nice to see them shaking up the market.
Good to see Axxess tackling the hosting market so aggressively, how ever I must admit that I have given letsencrypt some serious consideration and for the most part as much as I support the idea of encrypting the web I can definitely see many negatives regarding this project.
Google will treat all brands equally (paid or free). 'HTTPS' is the ranking signal - not the brand or certificate type itself. There's also no real reason for them to favour one brand over another. They may be one of the sponsors of the Let's Encrypt project, but it's just one of the many SSL initiatives they're involved in, and they happen to use Geotrust SSL's on their own sites. Also, Let's Encrypt is a legitimate SSL certificate. It's simply a bare-bones solution without certain benefits that the other providers offer.Letsencrypt opens the flood gates for scammers to promote SSL on a spamvertised website where they would typically not be bothered to purchase and ssl in an attempt to convince their victims that their websites are legitimate.
Will be interesting to see how google handles rankings of websites that have SSL enabled via letsencrypt vs websites that have legitimate SSL certs installed, considering that Chrome (google) are a major sponsor.
Was my biggest gripe with them. Had a major issue one Saturday afternoon, and ended up having to wait until Monday morning for it to be resolved.Just remember AXXESS and Afrihost does not give hosting or VPS support after hours.
Something goes wrong late on a Friday, you will have to wait for them to work through the mail support logs on Monday and eventually get a mail back asking what you did. W..?
Can we deploy our own nodejs (or other) applications with these hosting plans?
No you can't, it's a shared hosting environment. So CPanel + PHP + MySQL + Apache (or Litespeed or whatever they choose as their web server)Did you get an answer to this yet?
I see Axxess have updated this promotion. After 6 months free you get 50% off the next 6 months hosting.
