Technical Details

SSL Certificates

Section gets your website up and running on HTTPS without any effort required by you, and continues to manage the certificate so you don’t have to worry about maintenance. This includes:

  • Procurement: Before you can run your website on HTTPS, you need to get a certificate. This means you need to research vendors, compare prices, and spend money. Section takes care of certificate procurement for free.

  • Installation: Once you have purchased a certificate, you then need to install the certificate on your website by finding the appropriate keys and safely storing the keys in case you ever need to install the certificate again. Section’s platform installs the certificate and stores key information securely for you.

  • Renewal: Section takes care of certificate renewal for you, so you never have to worry about an expiration date again. Automated renewals ensure your site will offer uninterrupted HTTPS for your customers without any action required by you.

  • Rigorously Tested: Section performs regular automated testing to ensure your encryption always meets or exceeds industry standards. Our testing ensures a Grade A or better on Qualys SSL Labs, a comprehensive HTTPS server test with results you can check yourself at any time.
