SSL, AutoSSL

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an encryption-based Internet security protocol. Designed to provide security over a server, its domain(s), and networks. Several versions of SSL are used in applications such as web browsing, email, instant messaging, and voice over IP. SSL is the predecessor to the modern TLS encryption used today. The two terms are often used interchangeably in the industry.

While there are different levels of SSL, all servers, domains, and sites on Web Hosting Valdosta servers are required to have SSL enabled, to ensure this AutoSSL is enabled by default until an upgraded SSL is added. AutoSSL is a cPanel feature that automatically installs and renews SSL certificates for every assigned domain on a Web Hosting Valdosta Server.
