A World First! - UK2 and Comodo Partner to Offer Unlimited Free SSL’s
October 11, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsAll new and existing UK2 Dedicated Server customers can claim their free Comodo Positive SSL Certificates (worth £33 each per annum) via their control panel. The certificates provide domain validation, 128 / 256 bit encryption and are trusted by all popular internet browsers with 99.3% ubiquity. By using these certificates UK2 Dedicated Server customers can build customer confidence in their own websites, by providing assurance that data cannot be tampered with or forged and is protected during online transactions.
“As far as I know this is a world first!” comments UK2 CEO Ditlev Bredahl “Dedicated Hosting offers are getting more and more similar so at UK2 we wanted to do something different. This offer is a costly one for us, but we will do what it takes to stand out from the crowd and provide our customers with outstanding value for money.”
“This also a killer deal for resellers” Ditlev continues “As they would be able to offer all their end users the benefits of SSL Certificates as well. As a reseller you could sell them, or give them away for free, it’s your choice”
UK2 also plans to provide SSL Certificate offers to their Web Hosting and E-commerce clients, along with discounted Extended Validation SSL Certificates. These plans will be announced shortly.
