Why do I need SSL on my Website?

Aside from the advantage you will receive on your Google rankings, you also have a responsibility to protect your visitors. Any information they exchange with your site will travel through the internet in plain text unless you use SSL to encrypt it.

How do I protect my visitors?

There are many ways to secure your site and protect your site visitors from having sensitive information leaked. One of the most effective methods is to install a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate. This will encrypt all data from end to end.

Why should I use UKC for my Web Security?

At UKC we ONLY provide Grade A level Web Hosting + SSL implementation.

Installing SSL can be quite a complex affair for the non-technical. We at UKC make the process simple by doing everything you need – from requisition to installation. We will help you apply redirects or to reconfigure your CMS to make best use of your new security.

How do I test my Web Hosting SSL Grade?

We recommend you use the online test provided by Qualys SSL Labs. It takes two minutes, you do not need to provide any details other than your website address and you will immediately receive a grading for your site. Less than Grade A is not acceptable.

How do I get a Grade A?

Using SSL on your site is only part of the story. Having it implemented properly is where we come in. We provide a combination of secure web hosting configuration together with industry recognised SSL certificate installation. We do it all for you.

Order your Grade A level security from UKC today.

Emails not forwarding to Hotmail, Gmail or Yahoo

emailEmail Forwarding Problems

If you are using the free SMTP service provided with your UKC hosting account then sometimes there may be problems with deliverability to the free email providers.

As this is a shared service, performance may be limited by the actions of other users. For example, rogue users could cause a build-up of backlogged mail, and can even cause the server to become temporarily blacklisted.

There is also the possibility that some users may be using the system to spend spam and other malicious email. In this case, other email systems may see this spam and blacklist the server.

This could cause your emails to be delayed or, in the worst case, bounced back.

Ensure your Email / Domain is in your Recipient Safe Senders list

All of the large providers offer a “safe senders” list. You should ensure you ask your clients that use free email addresses as the contact details to ensure your domain is added to their “safe senders” list to ensure deliverability.

See: How we ask our clients to add us to their safe senders list

Use your ISP SMTP Server for maximum deliverability

For best SMTP performance we recommend that you use your ISP SMTP server.
