Important Notification About Our SSL Offerings

Due to Registration Authority regulation changes from ICANN (the Internet’s governing body), we’ve made two changes to our SSL offerings.

Maximum Issuance Length

This new regulation sets the maximum length of time for which we can issue SSL certificates to 39 months.

Because we only offer SSL certificates on an annual basis this means customers will only be able to:

  • Purchase new certificates with a maximum issuance length of 3 years
  • Renew existing certificates for a maximum of 3 years

This policy is set to completely take effect on July, 1 2014.

Fortunately, this regulation change doesn’t impact SSL certificates we’ve already issued that fall outside the 39-month limit. However, when those customers’ SSL certificates are up for renewal, they cannot renew them outside the new maximum issuance length of 3 years.

Free SSL Credits Only Offered for 1 Year

Starting July 1, 2014, free SSL certificate credits offered with some products are only free for the first year. After the certificate’s first year, customers will have the option to renew their SSL certificates for our renewal pricing.

An Example of the Change

Previously, free SSL credits were given to customers for the same length of time as the parent product’s purchase length. If a customer purchased an Ultimate-level hosting plan for 5 years, they received a credit for a free SSL with a 5-year issuance length.

However, that credit would fall outside the maximum issuance length we can offer because of this new regulation. This use-case is what compelled us to change the issuance-length of free SSL credits. To adhere to ICANN’s policy and create a consistent user experience, we’ve decided to offer free SSL credits with a 1-year issuance length.

Starting July 1, 2014, if a customer purchase an Ultimate-level hosting plan for 5 years, the free SSL credit they receive expires one year from the date of purchase. At its expiration, our customers can choose to renew it for our SSL certificate renewal price.

Customers with existing certificate credits greater than 3 years can continue to use them until July 1, 2015. After that date, using either a 4- or 5-year issuance length credit will create a certificate with an issuance length of 3 years.

Multiple Products’ Retirement Details

We are retiring the following products on June 2, 2014:

  • InstantPage®
  • SmartSpace®
  • Quick Blogcast®
  • For Sales & Starter Pages
  • Website Protection Site Scanner (more info)

Because this impacts your business, we wanted to let you know about our schedule to complete these tasks.

Retirement Details

March 14, 2014 — The products we’re retiring will no longer be available for sale on your Reseller storefront.

April 2, 2014 — We will email all customers with products impacted by this retirement, letting them know that in 60 days the products will no longer be available in their accounts as of June 2, 2014.*

This email will also include suggested alternatives to the products we’re retiring. You can view the list in our article How do the upcoming product retirements affect me? Before April 2, this article is only visible to you — your customers cannot view it.

Mid-May, 2014 — We will email customers a final notice approximately two weeks before June 2 reminding them about the pending removal of their accounts.*

June 2, 2013 — Customers will receive a cancellation notice of any accounts we remove from our system.*

*These notices will only go to customers who have unused free Website Protection credits, which we offered with Unlimited Hosting accounts and SSLs. We are notremoving any active Website Protection accounts at this time.

Website Protection Details

How we’re handling Website Protection Site Scanner’s retirement differs from the other products.

  • Website Protection Site Scanner will be replaced by a new product called SiteLock in mid-March. SiteLock offers great features customers have been requesting from Website Protection Site Scanner, including the ability to remove malware from infected sites. We’ll have more details about that product when we get closer to its release date.
  • We are not removing any active Website Protection accounts. However, we are removing unused free Website Protection credits on June 2.

Refund Details

When we cancel these accounts on June 2, we will also issue refunds to In-Store Credit for any additional time remaining on their accounts. This will not impact your commission whatsoever.

If you provide your customers our support number, our billing department will be available to assist customers with any issues they have with their refunds.

How Search Engines Rank Web Pages

Search engines have developed a lot of sophisticated techniques for weighting and valuing pages on the Web. But they all come down to basically two categories:

  • What does your Web page say?
    The actual text content of your Web page and HTML code. What content does your site convey to the user?
  • Who is linking to you?
    What sort of other Web pages are linking to yours? Do they have the same topic or a related topic?




When you look at a Web page, you see the page displayed on your computer screen. You can read the text, look at the images, and figure out what that page is about.

Search engines don’t see Web pages the same way a person does. In fact, search engines cannot actually see at all, at least not visually. Instead, they read the HTML code of the Web page, and the actual text that it contains.

All the search engines can read is text. They also can look at the HTML code (which is also text) of the site to try and get some clues about what that text means or which text is most important.

Search engines can sometimes use the HTML code to get some clues about other elements on the page, such as images and animation. For example, search engines can look at an image tag and read the alt text attribute, if the page author supplied it, to get an idea of what the image is.

img src="cowpicture.jpg" alt="Picture of a cow" 
However, this is not a replacement for actual text content.


Web links from other sites are also important clues that search engines use to figure out what your page is about, or how important your page is for a particular search query. In a search engine’s view, a link from one page to another is basically a “vote” for that page.

If you have a page about cows, and a local farmer’s Web page links to your page from their website for more information on the topic of cows, that is an extra vote for your page.

More links = more votes.

Not all votes are equal votes, however. Most important is how relevant the link is. For example, a link from a page about  dairy products or cows doesn’t have much to do with cheap domain registration or cheap domain hosting, so a link from that page to your website about cows does not count for very much at all, if anything.

Some Web page owners put a lot of time and effort into chasing down links from other Web page authors, swapping links or trying to get listed on directories or have articles posted to sites like Digg or Reddit. This can be helpful for your site, but you have to remember to focus on your own page content first. If your Web page doesn’t have much value to other site authors, they are unlikely to link to it.
