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.
