Secure your site for free on Reality42

A number of months ago we installed SSL certificates for every site hosted by Reality42. We were getting ready for the latest changes by Google and ensuring you could secure your website for your visitors.

Effective July 2018, Google’s Chrome browser will mark non-HTTPS sites as ‘not secure’. This could have a dramatic effect on your website and reduce the number of visitors. Google already prioritises HTTPS results when searching for sites.

Don’t delay. If you haven’t done so already change your website to take advantage of the free certificates we have installed for you.

If you are running WordPress you can do this by logging into the dashboard, select Settings, General, then change the start of the two URL text boxes from http:// to https://

If you need any help in switching your site from http to https don’t hesitate to contact us or raise a support ticket in the customer area

Free secure certificates for all clients

We are pleased to offer all existing and new clients free secure certificates for their sites while hosted with Reality42.

Your site already has the certificate installed and it will automatically renew every year.  You can test it out by visiting

We still offer great rates on identity and wildcard certificates if you require extra security and validation.

Patch your WordPress site ASAP

If you haven’t done so already, apply the security update for WordPress and your plugins as there are some nasty vulnerabilities in older versions.  If you are with Reality42 you can automate the update through your control panel so it takes seconds to secure.  Set the option to auto update in the future and stay secure.  Contact the support team if you have any issues and we’ll help you get up to date.
