HostBill offers Hosting Companies fully automated SSL reselling through partnership with GlobalSign

HostBill Customers now Save Time and Reduce Support Costs by Automating Activations of SSL secure sites

Boston, MA - June 11 2012 - GlobalSign (, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL partner programs, today announced that HostBill, an online management service for hosting companies, has integrated GlobalSign’s revolutionary automated secure site activation technology OneClickSSL. The integration will allow HostBill’s customers to resell secure site vouchers and fully automated SSL, significantly decreasing support costs normally associated with SSL and greatly increasing the SSL reselling opportunity.

OneClickSSL uses a voucher-based model to replace the outdated and error-prone traditional SSL process. Hosting companies and their customers order Secure Site Vouchers via the HostBill OneClickSSL module and then redeem them using one of GlobalSign’s plug-ins (available for cPanel, Parallels, IIS, and Apache). With a single click, the plug-in automatically creates the cryptographic keys and Certificate Signing Request (CSR), validates control of the domain, and installs and binds the certificate to the appropriate website all in less than a minute. Automating these steps drastically reduces the burden of SSL support on hosting companies and allows them to focus on their core business.

"As a leading software provider for the hosting industry we are always conscious of the latest industry technology and looking for ways to increase the value we bring to our customers," said Kris Pajak, Lead Developer, HostBill. "With OneClickSSL our customers can achieve higher profit margins from reselling SSL without the hassle of support issues."

"We are pleased that HostBill is the latest billing provider to integrate OneClickSSL into its platform," said Steve Waite, Chief Executive Officer, GMO GlobalSign, Inc. "SSL is an essential part of website security and this integration removes the technical roadblocks that often prevent site owners from using it. Having OneClickSSL available to HostBill’s large customer base will help increase mass adoption of SSL without burdening the hosting companies with technical support issues."

OneClickSSL is available through HostBill versions 3.2.2 and above. HostBill customers wishing to implement the GlobalSign OneClickSSL module, should visit for full installation instructions.

To promote the integration, GlobalSign is offering introductory OneClickSSL pricing for HostBill customers with domain validated Secure Site Vouchers starting at only $10. HostBill customers interested in taking advantage of the special pricing should visit to sign up for reduced pricing.
