(The Hosting News) – GlobalSign and Hosting Controller recently announced the integration of SSL ordering and installation into Hosting Controller’s control panel, enabling dedicated SSL to be activated and resold (and transparently installed) down the chain, from host to reseller to end customer, with ease.
This is the first time Hosting Controller has activated dedicated SSL (a unique SSL Certificate for use on a unique website) within its control panel. The new solution allows HC customers to simply create a GlobalSign product plan and pricing model, which becomes immediately available to their resellers and customers via the control panel. This is the first fully automated application and installation solution to be made available via control panel software. Offering a simplified SSL selling and activation process, Hosting Controller’s HC8 webhosting panel will assist web hosting companies who wish to adopt SSL Certificates into their product portfolios as a value added product.
Since the launch of HC in 1999, Hosting Controller has offered its web hosting customers a complete automated solution, enabling them to experience infinite hosting possibilities in cluster environments, whilst lowering operational costs. The control panel remains fully automated with the introduction of dedicated SSL, right through to the fully integrated end-customer billing process. The whole process is simplified and hosting companies will no longer be required to handle customer enquiries regarding creation or use of Certificate Signing Requests (CSRs) during the application process.
Hosting Controller already partners with numerous technology organisations enabling them to deliver the most advanced and high performance solutions to clients. With more and more hosting companies integrating GlobalSign SSL Certificates into their product portfolios, partnering with GlobalSign to offer an automated SSL reselling solution was an ideal strategic business opportunity.
“Including dedicated SSL within our control panel is a new feature for Hosting Controller and we believe our newly formed partnership with GlobalSign will add value to the services we currently offer our clients,” said Babar Zaman, VP Business Development, Hosting Controller. “As more hosting companies choose to resell SSL Certificates we are happy to offer the industry’s only fully automated SSL provisioning, and we look forward to offering GlobalSign’s wide SSL Certificate product range within our existing solutions.”
“Integrating our SSL Certificate application and delivery platform within Hosting Controller’s control panel will provide partners with immediate revenue generating and cost reducing benefits, making the whole SSL reselling opportunity even more appealing”, said Steve Roylance, Director of Business Development, GlobalSign. “The advanced technology makes the application, installation and management of SSL Certificates effortless, on the whole allowing an increasing number of hosting companies to respond to their client’s individual SSL requirements.”
All GlobalSign SSL Certificates are issued from GlobalSign’s widely distributed 2048 bit Root CA Certificate and will allow Hosting Controller end customers to easily obtain, install, and activate SSL security to secure their ecommerce websites, logins, servers, and other next generation services.
