Safer SSL settings on servers

SSL certificates have been a determinant of a properly configured hosting service for many years. Thanks to them we can be sure that the transmission between two computers is fully secure and impossible to decrypt. A few years ago we published an article: Secure SSL configuration on Apache server, where we described how to generate and install the certificate. Recently we have introduced new SSL settings on all servers (dedicated, VPS and hosting).

The most important innovation that we have introduced is the support for TLSv1.2 encryption protocol only. We have abandoned all older encryption methods, for the sake of the highest security of our users. The new settings are compatible with the following software: Firefox 27, Chrome 30, IE 11 on Windows 7, Edge, Opera 17, Safari 9, Android 5.0, Java 8 and their newer versions.

Thanks to the above changes, our servers are resistant to such threats as BEAST, POODLE, Heartbleed or Ticketbleed.

If you don’t have SSL implemented on your website yet, read why you should use https. We would like to remind you that all our hosting accounts automatically have a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate installed. We also offer social certificates CAcert.org.
