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.
Perfect if you conduct your business in Euros.
For a limited time offer customers a great price on new, first-year .EU domain name registrations.
The sale prices are USD $7.99 and EUR €5.99 so don’t miss out on this offer.
FREE .COM, .CO, .NET, .ORG or .IN domain when you purchase Web Hosting, Quick Shopping Cart, or a Website Builder plan of 12 months or longer.
Who can register .us domain names?
The U.S. Nexus Requirement ensures that only individuals or organizations that have a substantive connection to the United States can register .us domain names. To qualify for a .us domain name, you must be:
A natural person (i) who is a citizen or permanent resident of the United States of America or any of its possessions or territories, or (ii) whose primary place of domicile is in the United States of America or any of its possessions.
An entity or organization that is (i) incorporated within one of the fifty (50) U.S. states, the District of Columbia, or any of the United States possessions or territories or (ii) organized or otherwise constituted under the laws of a state of the United States of America, the District of Columbia, or any of its possessions or territories.
An entity or organization (including a federal, state, or local government of the United States, or a political subdivision thereof) that has a bona fide presence in the United States.
Domain names can be up to 63 characters, with a minimum of three characters, and can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and hyphens (except at the beginning or end of the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.
Connect with an entire region with a single domain.
The .ASIA Top-Level Domain (TLD) is an ICANN-sponsored domain extension that represents the Asia-Pacific region. A .ASIA domain gives you exposure to the region as a whole, as opposed to individual countries, such as a .JP or .CN domain extension. This is particularly useful for companies that conduct business in different Asian countries. Securing a .ASIA domain gives you regional recognition, makes it easier to manage your Web presence, and increases your exposure to the growing number of Internet users in the Asia-Pacific region.
.ASIA is available to individuals, businesses, organizations, and community groups, as long as one of your contacts lives in the Asia-Pacific region.
What can a .ASIA do?
- Help you reach millions of Internet users in Asia with a combination of global recognition and regional significance.
- Give your company, organization or event an online identity with an Asian flavor.
- Protect your brand from competitors who might wish to take advantage of the name recognition generated by your popular .COM.
For a limited time offer customers a great price on new, first-year .CA domain name registrations.
The promotional price is just CAD 9.99, so don’t miss out on this offer.
Note: The promotional sale price above is for CAD only. Purchases made with a different currency will be converted to USD 12.99, upon checkout.

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.

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.
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.
