cPanel

Security certificates are what show to users that your website is secure and it's safe for them to pass you personal information (for example their email address through a contact form).

More commonly people have security certificates for online shopping carts as they are taking credit card details from users online for an online store (https). However, since 2018 Google has given preference to secure sites in their search results so there's also a search results advantage to having SSL installed on your website.

Installing a Security Certificate

If you are using cPanel as your website control panel then in all likelehood you can use self signed certificates which cost nothing to install. However, you will have to renew these from time to time and here's how...

  • Login yo your cPanel control panel (www.YourDomain.com/cPanel)
  • Click on "SSL/TLS Status" (this will tell you if a valid certificate is installed and if it has expired when it expired)
  • Put a tick in the box next to the domain(s) you want to issue an SSL for or alternatively just put a tick in the box at the top of the list of domains to select them all
  • Click "Run Auto SSL"
  • cPanel will now install SSL certificates on the selected domains for you.

The cPanel SSL service will also issue and automatically renew these certificates each year.

This will take a few moments to update but once done your site will be secure.

As with all our tutorials they come with a video which you can watch below.

It may become necessary to update your website's server to use a newer version of PHP. Where this is necessary we will already have provisioned and tested this new version for you and made it available. All you have to do is log in to your control panel (cPanel) and change this through MultiPHP Manager.

When you have bought your hosting an account will be setup on our servers using the details you have provided.

The following video should be of some use to those of you would like to create your own e-mail address for use with your website hosting.

The response may appear to come through really quickly, that's just because the video was paused while the response was sent from a separate location.

Quick, easy, simple: Set your mail account up today...!

Creating a mail forwarder is simply a way of taking all mails sent to "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." and forwarding them onto "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." for example.

Each mail sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. will be saved on the server and a copy sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

So, how to set this up...

  • Login to your control panel
  • Make sure the mail account you want to forward is already setup on the server
  • Select "Forwarders"
  • Add a mail forwarder for the mail account in question
  • You can forward to any mail account you like
  • All mail to the account will now be forwarded and a copy kept on the server
