Free SSL!

Some website addresses start with http while others begin with https. The 's' indicates secure encryption. More and more website visitors are wary of websites not displaying the security lock in the address bar. You and your website deserve the best security possible. As well, Google uses SSL to rank websites, so unless you have SSL your site will be harder to find. Vanilla Gorilla Hosting provides all our customers SSL protection - at no additional cost!
