Dan.com is adding SSL to over 1 million hosted domains

Domain marketplace Dan.com is adding SSL to landing pages, starting with .app.

Domain name marketplace Dan.com is adding SSL certificates to all domain names parked on its service, the company has informed Domain Name Wire.

Starting now, you can park .app domain names on Dan and the service will create an SSL certificate for them. The company is not stopping there; by the end of the week it hopes to have all domains on the service (including .com) using SSL certificates.

The move is important for a couple of reasons.

First, Google is requiring second level domains on some of its TLDs to have an SSL certificate in order to resolve. Second, Google’s Chrome browser is steadily warning people away from pages that aren’t secure. This could reduce sales conversions.

Some parking services are getting around the SSL issue by forwarding domain names to secure page on the marketplace’s URL, but adding SSL to the individual domain names is ultimately a better solution.

Dan.com has also become a sponsor of Let's Encrypt to assist the foundation with pushing for a more secure Internet by getting more domains SSL secured.
