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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
