Bloo Hosting FREE SSL FAQ

The free AutoSSL tool automatically creates SSL Certificates across your account for any active domain added to your account and resolved to your Bloo Hosting server. Likewise, free AutoSSL certificates are installed for conventional top-level domains and subdomains unless free AutoSSL management is turned off in your account.
There is no doubt that a free AutoSSL is a convenient option to have in a hosting account. The level of encryption provided by a free AutoSSL is the same as what you would find in a paid SSL.

If the SSL process should fail, there are a few troubleshooting steps to consider before contacting support.

  • The domain’s DNS is not routed to Bloo Hosting. In this case, you must update DNS via an A record or point the domain’s nameservers at the registrar to InMotion Hosting.
  • The domain’s website is using a third-party CDN like Cloudflare or Sucuri. In this case, you are advised to purge the cache and temporarily disable IP masking features to allow the domain validation to go through.
  • Security plugins in the content management system (e.g. WordPress, Joomla, Magento, etc.) could be blocking domain validation. Temporarily disabling these plugins will help.

If you are still having trouble with the Manage Free AutoSSL tool, feel free to submit a ticket.

Next Steps

Now that you have activated the free AutoSSL tool, here are some helpful links to other SSL/HTTPS articles to instruct you on the next steps:

  • To make sure your site uses the SSL properly, you can force your site to use https via the .htaccess file
  • Make sure to check that your SSL padlock displays correctly, to let others know your site is secure
  • Check if your Free SSL is fully active using SSL-Checker service. It should be all green.
It is worthwhile to note that our free certificates are SNI without a dedicated IP.
This means that multiple domains can share an IP address and still use an SSL. It should be noted that this type of certificate 
does not have the same level of acceptance as an Advanced SSL with a dedicated IP. This is because SNI is a relatively new extension and is only recently receiving widespread support across browsers and devices. Some combinations of older browsers and devices may not accept a certificate that is using SNI.
SNI stands for Server Name Indication and is an extension of the TLS protocol. It indicates which hostname is being contacted by the browser at the beginning of the ‘handshake’-process.
