It is no secret that websites protected with SSL certificate tend to be more professional. With WildcardParking you don't have to worry because every one of your domains will have their own certificate.
Depending on what template or widget you use, an SSL certificate can make a huge difference in whether or not your visitors trust your domains.
Using the SSL certificates or not is completely up to you. Our easy to use control panel will allow you to turn ON or OFF any certificate for any specific domain or for the whole account at once.
A while ago Google announced that HTTPS is a ranking factor, which means any page is more likely to rank higher with an SSL certificate than without. This is true even for parking pages.
Other than improved trust and better ranking possibilities, it is very important to protect any customer data if you use any one of our affiliate templates or if you have a subscribtion form on your page.
If you have a login or subscribe element on any of your parking pages, then it's a good idea to have an SSL certificate in place. Visitors who feel protected are more likely to keep coming back.

You don't. Every one of your parked domains will automatically request, confirm, install and activate it's own SSL certificate. There is absolutely nothing you need to do to activate SSL certificates, and you can always switch them off for any domain you don't wish to protect for any reason.

The SSL certificates we're using are provided by LetsEncrypt.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG).
We're very excited and happy to be able to offer this great opportunity for our customers to protect all their data with no complicated setup and maintenance involved.
In order for the SSL certificate to be requested, the domain should receive at least
one(first) real visit. As soon as that happens the request for SSL certificate is
created and will be requested with 24 hours.
If for some reason this process takes longer than a day, please contact us and we'll be happy to look into that.
Grey lock sign means the SSL certificate is deactivated for that domain. In 99.9% of the time this will happen when you click on the lock to manually deactivate the certificate. This can be undone simply by clicking on the grey lock and it will turn green and activate again. In case if this doesn't work for you, please let us know via chat or contact form.
The activation period for any certificate is 3 months. However this doesn't mean that you need to do anything to keep them active. We will automatically renew every SSL certificate before it expires. You will always have active certificates on every domain you have the certificate switched on, as long as LetsEncrypt is functioning the same way.
The orange lock sign means the SSL certificate activation is in processing stage. Be that
new request, renewal or any other reason.
If you find this happen to your domains too often or for too long, please contact us via live chat or the contact form.
When https:// shows up grey in the browser bar this usually means that the page itself is
protected but it contains links or blocks from unprotected source. This usually happens
when a widget or a picture is linked using a http:// connection instead of https://.
Since we allow custom links and affiliate widgets on some of our templates, it is possible you might see this happening sometimes. We recommend to be careful with what you link to your pages in order to avoid such things.
In case you're not sure why this happens to your template, don't hesitate to contact us with detailed information on the problem, and we'll look into it.
