. August 19, 2010 . 0 Comments

GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Partner Programs, today announced a new partnership with HostGee, a leading provider of premium web hosting products and data center infrastructure. The newly formed partnership will allow customers to purchase SSL Certificates in conjunction with their current web hosting solutions, providing convenience and ease for many customers who would normally have to purchase from two separate companies.

As a leader in the professional web hosting market, HostGee chose to seek out a leading SSL provider who could offer both cost effective and reliable SSL security solutions. HostGee will be offering GlobalSign’s SSL Certificates bundled together within their existing hosting packages, allowing HostGee to enhance their current offerings while showing customers a strong commitment to continually providing superior and dependable web-hosting solutions. The partnership will enable HostGee to offer all three types of SSL Certificates, the fast issuance Domain Validation SSL, traditional Organization Validation SSL, and the newly standardized Extended Validation EV SSL, which activates the green address bar interface in IE, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari browsers.

“We chose GlobalSign based on reliability, cost and overall ROI,” said Shafiq Ur Rehman, CEO/Founder of HostGee.Com. “Our customers have increasing security concerns which prompted us to find a provider who could offer the most reliable and cost effective SSL security solution.”

“With security concerns and compliance issues rising, more and more web-hosting companies receive requests from their current customers for additional security solutions or an all inclusive web-solution,” says Katsuo Chujo, Marketing Director, GlobalSign Inc. “GlobalSign’s partner program allows web solution providers the ability to generate a new revenue stream from a competitive product line by offering a product their customers require and already buy from elsewhere.”

HostGee.Com currently offers Two web hosting package levels; Essential Standard, and Master Professional, all designed for clients who need bulletproof reliability and support at an affordable rate. HostGee chose to bundle together GlobalSign’s SSL Certificates into their Professional web hosting package which is the most robust out of the Two. HostGee.Com also intends on becoming a Platinum Partner to take advantage of deeper pricing discounts, enhanced product development and additional sales and marketing resources including a co-branded site seal. The co-branded site seal will display both HostGee and GlobalSign’s logo to help educate web visitors on the security technology employed to protect transactions performed on the website, which are securely encrypted with GlobalSign”s strong SSL technology. All GlobalSign SSL Certificates are inclusive of Server Gated Cryptography (SGC) (to “step up” weak browser encryption to strong encryption on older browsers), and are issued from the widely distributed 2048 bit GlobalSign Root CA Certificate.
