Free 1-Year Standard Certificate¶
Every domain name or Simple Hosting instance you purchase from Gandi comes with a free 1-year standard SSL certificate.
These certificates can be created automatically or manually.
Certain operations you perform using your Gandi account will automatically generate a free SSL certificate. These include:
- Creating a forward using an https address.
- Creating a site on a Simple Hosting instance.
You can also generate your free SSL certificate yourself using the normal order process for SSL Certificates.
When prompted for the type of certificate select “Free.”
Once you have entered the correct common name, finish the order. The free SSL certificate will show a price of “0” in your cart.
Be careful to choose a standard, one address SSL certificate for one year. Complete the order as normal.
When you reach the checkout screen, the price listed will be 0.
If you have already received a free SSL for this domain, you will be charged the regular price.
