Available SSL Certificate Options


Updated SSL Browser Policy

As of September 1, 2020 Google Chrome and Apple Safari web browsers will only trust an SSL certificate issued for a maximum of 398 days. Certificates issued before September 1, 2020 will be valid for up to 2 years.

In order to meet this requirement and avoid passing the headaches on to you, we’ve changed the way our SSL certificates are sold to you. Certificates may be purchased for 1, 2 or 3 years at a time. When your certificate is issued, the email address listed for the technical support contact should be ssl@evolvewebhost.com when your website is hosted with us. This will provide us with a notification around the 365 day mark. At this time, we will generate a new CSR and Certificate for your domain to keep it valid.

The great thing is that you can save by purchasing for a longer period and you don’t have to worry about any of the technical aspects to keep your site compliant. If you have any questions, please open a ticket for our Sales Team or give our Sales Team a call at 303-900-5050

What is a Dedicated IP Address?

Dedicated IP Address Benefits

Is a Dedicated IP Address Required?
A Dedicated IP address is not required but it is recommended for Shared Web Hosting plans.
Managed Virtual Private Servers (VPS)
Every Managed VPS comes with 2 IP Addresses. If you are only hosting sites for yourself, you do not need to purchase any additional Dedicated IP Addresses. If you are using your Managed VPS to host other clients accounts (ie., you’re a web designer hosting your clients sites), we recommend purchasing a Dedicated IP Address for each of your clients cPanel or DirectAdmin accounts when adding an SSL Certificate.

They may be ordered at the time you purchase an SSL Certificate on our website or you may open a ticket for our Sales Team or give our Sales Team a call at 303-900-5050
