Domain registrar and web hosting provider NameCheap announced on Tuesday it is offering a free Comodo PositiveSSL certificate with any purchase on its website.
The offer is available for any purchase including domains, domain transfers, and hosting accounts and extends one year after the certificate's activation.
The free SSL in NameCheap's offering comes with IdAuthority, a real-time identity assurance service developed by Comodo that allows website identities to be verified against registry and public data.
Comodo recently extended its Two Factor authentication solution to support Microsoft's Outlook Web Access and SharePoint server applications.
The PositiveSSL also comes with 128/256 bit encryption, which is able to encrypt credit card information for low volume e-commerce sites. All customers will be able to put the Comodo seal on their site.
"Because SSLs are crucial for any site transmitting sensitive information it is important for any website to provide their clients with this added security," says NameCheap's CEO Rick Kirkendall.
"A lot of other companies overcharge for them. This is a great value we are offering for NameCheap customers and we are glad to have Comodo as a partner in this. Hopefully this will allow a lot of those smaller ecommerce website operators an easy way to secure their client's personal information."
This limited time offering is available without a coupon to all customers at the NameCheap website.
