SSL is quite important in the operation of the website. It affects SEO.
If you make a mistake in selecting the SSL service, it will cost a considerable amount. But, in Japan, there is a server that can use SSL for free.
This article is summarizing Japanese rental server which can use custom SSL for free.
What is SSL?
Protocol to protect information
"SSL" is a protocol that protects information entered on a website from being read by other people.
By the way, the page protected by SSL starts with "https: //". If it is not protected it is "http: //".
Recently the number of websites with "https: //" as a whole is increasing.
Important as it affects SEO
SSL affects SEO. That is officially announced by Google.
From now on, it seems that https will become the standard.
If you do not already have SSL applied to your site, you should apply it as soon as possible.
Recommended rental servers that can use custom SSL for free
When choosing a server, I think that they are almost the same even if they compare by speed or data capacity.
I think that it is better to compare the server with the balance of stability and cost, and whether or not custom SSL is available for free.
Two recommended rental servers in Japan are as follows.
- From 500 yen/month
- Custom SSL free
- Corresponding only to WordPress
This is powered by "X server" that is well established for stability in JAPAN. I am using this server. I can use this stably.
The disadvantage is that only WordPress can be used. If you want to use CMS other than WordPress or mail, I recommend the following "X server".
- From 900 yen/month
- Custom SSL free
- Other than wordpress OK
Considering the three conditions of stability, cost, and custom SSL free, I recommend the following server.
- If you only want to use WordPress "Wpx"
- If you want to use other than WordPress "X server"
