SSL Certificate

There are many benefits of having SSL( Security Socket Layer) certificate installed on your website. Having SSL certificate installed ensures that information passed between servers remain private and legal. It’s meant for safeguarding any sensitive data such as credit card information that is sent between two systems. An SSL certificate shows the website is secure to users by displaying padded lock icon on the address bar in modern browsers.

Liquidweb provides free SSL certificate installed on your website.

Here is video in which shows how you can install SSL certificate on managed WordPress hosting in less than two minutes.

Amazing Performance and Uptime

 

up-time

Server uptime and performance are the most important factor to consider while choosing a host for your website. You don’t want your visitors or potential to go to your website and see the website is down right, that’s why Liquidweb hosting provides 99.995% uptime guarantee.

They understand their customer cannot afford downtime as it will ultimately result in loss of money and reputation. Instead of leasing their core data center they own it privately, this gives them much better operational control and helps them attain over 99.995% uptime guarantee.

Heroic promise is a promise made by the sincere team that manages liquid web to their customers.

The promise is mainly divided into three parts that are Pre-order, throughout your order and after you sign up.
