WordPress Announcement - Moving Towards SSL

Article: https://wordpress.org/news/2016/12/moving-toward-ssl/

 

Hello,

 

With the recent announcement of Wordpress moving towards requiring SSL support on hosting is GoDaddy investigating the chance to implement a cheaper option of SSL. I have many clients who use Shared Hosting with cPanel (Linux) with GoDaddy and can't afford the $70 a year price tag with SSL Certificates because they are non-profit/volunteer organizations.

 

Is there a chance that GoDaddy might be working towards implementing something like "Let's Encrypt" for Linux and Windows Shared Hosting (including cPanel)?

 

I think this announcement from WordPress should be a kick for GoDaddy to implement "Let's Encrypt" in cPanel Hosting. I know other hosting providers do, but I am a loyal GoDaddy customer for many years.

 

Thanks

Chris Zenzel

I agree!  I don't want to move my account, but will if Godaddy does not have a reasonable path to SSL.

Hi @ChrisZ and @jerodkillick. There was another post similar to this where our head of WordPress products replied. You can find that here
