Australia – January 16, 2012 - GlobalSign (www.globalsign.com.au), a specialist in SSL partner programs and security automation technologies, today announced that QiQ Communications (http://www.qiq.com.au/), a leading hosting company has become the first to implement GlobalSign's OneClickSSL in Australia. The revolutionary technology will allow Australian customers to activate SSL security in seconds, directly from their control panel.
Applying for, and renewing, SSL Certificates has always been a tedious and complicated process. Completing the necessary steps, which entail creating and sending a CSR (Certificate Signing Request), receiving email communications from the SSL vendor and installing the SSL Certificate, requires patience and technical know-how. OneClickSSL rewrites the SSL paradigm by moving away from the traditional, long-winded and error-prone process of SSL provisioning and replacing it with an automated "Click to Activate SSL" workflow.
With OneClickSSL, hosting customers simply purchase Secure Site Vouchers from their hosting provider. The customer goes on to redeem the voucher via one of the OneClickSSL plug-ins, (including cPanel, Parallels Plesk, IIS and Apache), by entering the voucher code and clicking "Activate SSL". Customers have a SSL secured website in seconds, while hosting providers benefit from a reduced the support overhead and involvement overall. Not only will providers have more time to focus on their core business they will also be generating higher margins from reselling SSL Certificates.
As a boutique hosting company, QiQ have always been keen to improve their processes and with this in mind they have deployed the innovative OneClickSSL solution across a number of servers. With the introduction of OneClickSSL, QiQ replaces the time consuming and highly technical application process with an efficient "one-click" option making secure hosting and online business more accessible to smaller online shops.
"The decision to deploy OneClickSSL has enabled us to offer an affordable and efficient SSL solution to our clients," said Peter Harris, Managing Director, QiQ Communications. "An SSL voucher may now be purchased via QiQ's online billing system and activated within a client's hosting control panel with minimal fuss. Clients may choose to complete this simple process themselves or alternatively, QiQ can administrate SSL on their behalf."
