Let’s Encrypt but with Peace of Mind

STORM, our easy to use Hosting Platform, makes it painless to use the Let’s Encrypt functionality with just a single toggle to enable it for an entire web site. The Let’s Encrypt SSL is installed within seconds. You can add another domain or sub domain with just another click, and the SSL is updated immediately. With one more click, you can automatically redirect traffic to your secure site.

Every 90 days STORM will automatically renew your SSL even if you’ve added additional domains, added redirects or even put your password under password protection. Try Let’s Encrypt for yourself.

SSL Encryption with a Single Click

STORM also makes SSL encryption just a single click. A member of your team with any level of technical ability can enable a Let’s Encrypt on any web site, subdomain or additional domain with just a toggle switch.

PCI Compliance: Let's Encrypt, One Click, Hosting Platform STORM

Take our clients’ word for it……


Can I upgrade to another SSL like an EV later?

Certainly. With STORM you can either order an SSL from Nimbus Hosting from Thawte, GeoTrust, RapidSSL and Verisign. Alternatively, you can generate your own CSR and installed your own third party SSL yourself. Should you forget to renew your SSL, STORM will also warn you 7 days beforehand.

How many domains can I have on a Let’s Encrypt SSL?

There is currently no limit on the amount of domains, often called SANs (Subject Access Names), on a Let’s Encrypt SSL. However, we recommend keeping the certificate to less than 100 domains as more than this can cause some browsers to misbehave.

How secure is Let’s Encrypt?

Let’s Encrypt uses the same level as security as every other type of SSL certificate on the market. STORM supports TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.0 with the option to disable TLS 1.0 for PCI Compliance.

How is a Let’s Encrypt validated?

Let’s Encrypt SSLs are validated automatically by accessing a hidden file or URL on your web site. Therefore, the DNS must be configured before we can apply for a Let’s Encrypt SSL. We won’t let you enable Let’s Encrypt until your DNS is setup.

Do I have to worry about renewing my SSLs?

Let’s Encrypt SSLs are issued for 90 days. STORM will start to renew your SSL after 60 days to provide 30 days of grace should something go wrong. STORM will automatically renew your SSL even if you have setup a redirection, password protection or even changed your URL.

How quickly can I be up and running with Let’s Encrypt?

Within the STORM control panel, you can enable a Let’s Encrypt SSL with just a single click and your SSL will be installed, configured and ready to use in less than 20 seconds. You can add an additional domain or sub domain with another click and they will be added to your existing SSL within 30 seconds.
