    Free Let's Encypt SSL Certificates from Host Solutions

    FREE ‘Let’s Encypt’ SSL Certificates FOR LIFE!

    On July 24th, Google officially launched Chrome 68.
    With new features and security enhancements, Chrome continues to leverage its market dominance to push for a safer and more secure internet.

    From the beginning, security has been one of Chrome’s core principles and one of the biggest changes in Chrome 68 is displaying ‘Not Secure’ warnings for websites not encrypted with HTTPS.

    Nearly two years ago, Google announced that Chrome would eventually start marking all sites that are not encrypted with HTTPS as “Not Secure” as an attempt to motivate site owners to improve the security of their websites. With the release of Chrome 68, this has now become a reality.

    Starting in October 2018, Google plans to start showing a red “Not Secure” warning when users enter data on pages that are not served using HTTPS.

    Many other providers will take this opportunity to sell you expensive SSL certificates. increasing the cost you will need to pay each year to secure your website.

    Domain Name Price Changes

    The cost of registering and renewing .UK domain names is changing. Nominet, the .UK domain registry, announced back in November 2015 that the wholesale price for .UK domains (e.g. .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk) will increase from 1 March 2016.

    They also announced that they will no longer offer discounts on ‘multi-year’ registrations or renewals.

    Russell Haworth, CEO of Nominet, said in a statement:

    “We’re committed to running a first-class service for .UK registrants, including our renowned customer service, and we’re doing more than ever before to ensure the .UK space is safe and trusted home for all. But costs have risen considerably since we last changed the price, and we need to compete in a promotion-driven industry.”

    As a result of these changes, Host Solutions will be making changes to their .UK prices accordingly.

    As of March 1st 2016, the cost of registering or renewing .UK domains (.uk, .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk) with Host Solutions will increase from £5.99 per year to £6.99 per year. Additionally, all renewals will be offered for 1 year by default.

    Along with these increases, the price of .COM domains will change from £10.49 to £11.99 and the cost of .NET domains will changes from £11.49 to £12.99 from 1 February 2016.
