A short Q&A:

FREE UNLIMITED SSL CERTS FOR YOU AND YOUR CLIENTS HOSTED ON A UK2 DEDICATED SERVER!
Your visitors and potential clients, are worried that their personal information might fall into the wrong hands. By using one of our free Comodo SSL’s you will earn their trust and gain a competitive advantage.
As the only dedicated server provider in the world we offer you unlimited SSL’s. These SSL’s are sold at £33 pr year everywhere else, at UK2 they are free for you and all your clients.

Q: What is SSL?
A: Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a global standard security technology developed by Netscape in 1994. SSL creates an encrypted link between a web server and a web browser to ensure that all data transmitted remains private and secure. Millions of consumers recognize the “golden padlock” which appears in their browser to indicate they are viewing a secure web page.

Q: Why do I need SSL?
A: Gain competitive advantage by appearing more trusted and more legitimate. You can provide assurance to your customers that their data cannot be tampered with or forged, and ensure that your customer’s sensitive data is transmitted securely

Q: How do I get started?
A: Its easy, login to your admin, click the “Free SSL’s” link and fill in the form and you will be rolling. You do need access to the mail listed in the “whois” info of the domain though.

Q: Can I resell these SSL’s?
A: Yes, sure, but they are only working on our IP’s. So, you can’t sell them to anyone not running on our network. The form used when ordering the SSL will check the domain in the process, and only allow the generation of the certificate when verified as a domain hosted on the UK2 IP range.

Q: Can I give them to all my clients?
A: Yes, these SSL’s are yours to distribute. You can incl. them in bundles, sell them at a premium to your clients, or simply just give them to your clients for free.

Q: What type of SSL’s do you provide?
A: It’s the Positive SSL powered by COMODO, one of the market leaders on the SSL scene. Read more here: http://www.positivessl.com/ – normal price is £33, at UK2.net it’s free, free, free!

Q: Can I use this free SSL cert on websites not hosted by UK2.
A: No, these certificates are only valid and functional on UK2 servers, as they are continuously checked to ensure they are running on our IP numbers. If the certificates are found to be running on external IP’s they will be disabled and will result in error messages for visitors.

Q: Cool, unlimited SSL’s – but hang on, nothing is unlimited….
A: Well, true – nothing is really unlimited, but you can add all the SSL’s you want to your server, providing you have the dedicated IP’s and the processor power to run them.

Q: How about renewals of the SSL’s?
A: For now we plan to continue to offer this service for free, however if by some chance the SSL market goes through significant changes that do not allow us to maintain this offer renewals might be chargeable in the future, you would always be given fair notice if circumstances changed however.

Now I like the idea of an unlimited free beer offer (as long as it’s open to staff too! 🙂 )
