Boost your rankings with HTTPS

Find out how adding HTTPS hosting to your website can improve your search engine rankings

On 6th August 2014, Google announced that secure websites (those using HTTPS) would receive a benefit in their search rankings.

Customers of Mythic Beasts hosting accounts can enable HTTPS hosting at the press of a button, using a free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt. To enable HTTPS hosting, please click on hosting accounts in the control panel.

We're also able to offer a range of commercial SSL certificates, including "Extended Validation" certificates. We can also offer IP-based HTTPS hosting for customers that need to support legacy clients.

If you host your website elsewhere, or need an SSL certificate for other purposes, it's easy to obtain a free Let's Encrypt certificate using our DNS API. Please see our Let's Encrypt DNS validation support article for more details.

Hosting accounts

Standard HTTPS hosting is included as a no-cost option in all our hosting accounts for certificates purchased through us.
