  1. Build a secure site with a free SSL certificate in HubSpot.

    Whether you’re an established company or a team of one, security on your website is not a luxury — it's a necessity.  Protecting your business and customer data is a top priority. Your customers need to know their information is safe before doing business with you. 

    When you build your site with HubSpot, a standard SSL certificate is automatically built in. The SSL encrypts communication between your site and the server, helping protect user data. You save time avoiding third-party plugins and technical legwork.

  1. Prioritize user experience with a built-in SSL.

    Your website is your virtual storefront, where customers from all over the world come to interact with you. But if your website is compromised, you could experience breaches or outages. When you build your site with Content Hub, a built-in SSL certificate helps encrypt communications between your site, your customers, and your server — protecting user data and your business’ digital presence.
  2. Get a free SSL without plugins.

    Most content marketing platforms require that you buy hosting and an SSL certificate from separate vendors. Often, these third-party solutions require manual updates and unwieldy plugins. HubSpot’s SSL natively integrates with the platform's website-building tools, automatically securing your site when you build it.
  3. Design, secure, and promote your site in one platform.

    SSL is just the tipping point. With Content Hub, you’ll have all the tools you need to build and grow your business's site. Create a website your customers will love using a drag-and-drop page editor, publish content with a free blog maker, and grow your business with a fully connected CRM.
  4. Give users and browsers confidence.

    An SSL certificate encrypts user sessions, protecting personal information. It is the “S” in “HTTPS” that lets users know the experience they’re browsing is safe. Some users will avoid a site without proper SSL encryption, and many browsers will block it entirely. Ensure your website is easily reachable and trustworthy, leveraging HubSpot’s customer platform to build a secure experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • SSL stands for secure sockets layer. An SSL certificate is a digital file that verifies ownership of a website and encrypts communications between the site and the server. An SSL certificate protects users’ personal information, such as credit card information, login details, and more.

  • Knowing when a site has an SSL certificate is easy. Sites with SSL encryption will generally have a padlock symbol next to their name on your browser’s address bar or a URL starting with “HTTPS.” Sites with “HTTP”-only URLs don’t have an SSL certificate, and are automatically blocked by many browsers

  • With HubSpot, there is no technical setup or additional steps for the implementation of an SSL certificate. Simply build your website with HubSpot and a standard SSL certificate will be built in automatically. 

  • Search engines like Google use security as a ranking factor within their results. By enabling SSL on your site, you’ll signal to search engines that you’ve created a secure and encrypted connection between your website and your site visitors.

  • The main reasons for having an SSL certificate include protecting your site from costly attacks and helping prevent user data breaches. However, one often overlooked reason for having SSL encryption includes improved performance. Some search engines, browsers, and devices will ignore or block sites without SSL certificates (and the corresponding HTTPS protocol). Building a website without an SSL certificate could cost you hundreds or thousands of clicks and conversions per month. 

  • Currently, the free SSL certificate is only available for users who build and host their website with HubSpot.
