WHMCS Partners with GlobalSign to Provide and Integrate GlobalSign’s SSL Reseller Program into its All-in One Web Hosting Management Solution

Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) May 5, 2010

GlobalSign, one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL Partner Programs, today announced the integration of its SSL reselling module in the latest version of WHMCS’s management hosting solution platform. The SSL reselling module will enable WHMCS users to instantly order and automate reselling GlobalSign SSL Certificates with ease directly from the WHMCS management platform. The integration will assist web hosting companies who wish to adopt SSL Certificates as a value added product into their current product portfolio by simplifying and automating the selling management process.

Since 2005 WHMCS has been offering an all-in one client management, billing, and support platform creating a complete solution for online businesses. The WHMCS platform offers various solutions and modules from automated invoicing and billing, domain management, payment gateways, support tools, and various other modules aimed at solutions for online businesses. WHMCS has partnered with numerous strategic partners to integrate and embed products and services into the WHMCS platform to help online businesses automate and simplify product management. WHMCS choose to integrate GlobalSign’s SSL reseller program and its certificate deployment system due to the high demand of current WHMCS users who currently already resell GlobalSign Certificates. Currently, WHMCS users who resell GlobalSign SSL Certificates manage the selling and billing processes of reselling SSL Certificates separately through a back end process. However, now with the GlobalSign module embedded into WHMCS, web hosting companies can control the complete management and selling process of all the products they resell including GlobalSign SSL Certificates using one single platform. This integration will also open opportunities for web hosting companies using WHMCS to easily integrate GlobalSign SSL Certificates into their current offerings allowing them to optimize their product portfolio and generate new revenue streams with minimum effort or cost as everything can be managed within WHMCS.

“Our development goals are aimed and based entirely on feedback and request received from our end users; therefore, it was an obvious choice to integrate the GlobalSign Reselling Module as we knew the demand was present” says Matthew Pugh, Lead Developer, WHMCS.

“But furthermore, we are looking forward to offering our global customer base GlobalSign’s range of SSL Certificates creating a well-rounded solution that will meet the needs of our clientele and the levels they serve.”

“We are very excited and proud to welcome a global leader such as WHMCS as our newest partner.” says Steve Waite begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting, Vice President Channel Sales, GlobalSign. “Integrating the GlobalSign Reselling module into WHMCS’s all-in-one management solution will provide immediate benefits to our current partners using WHMCS and will open the door for other web-hosting companies around the world to offer GlobalSign SSL Certificates as a premium add on service to their existing hosting solutions within the management model they are already using.”

All GlobalSign SSL Certificates are issued from GlobalSign’s widely distributed 2048 bit Root CA Certificate and will allow WHMCS customers to easily obtain, install, and activate SSL security to secure their websites, logins, servers, and other next generation services. Companies interested in reselling GlobalSign’s SSL Certificates using the latest WHMCS platform can benefit from an introductory promotional campaign including:

GlobalSign Announces Strategic Partnership with Cloud Software Provider OnApp


Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 28, 2011

GMO GlobalSign Inc (http://www.globalsign.com), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialist in SSL hosting solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with leading cloud software provider OnApp (http://www.onapp.com). The terms of the partnership include integration of GlobalSign’s OneClickSSL technology into OnApp’s cloud deployment and management software, giving hosting customers easy access to automated SSL provisioning and reselling.

To launch the partnership, OnApp has included GlobalSign’s SSL solution in its Cloud-in-a-Box promotion – a $ 25m giveaway available from OnApp at HostingCon in San Diego August 8-10 2011.

OnApp software dramatically reduces the time and cost of building a cloud hosting business. Hosting providers choose OnApp for its rapid time to market, low entry requirements and rich cloud management features, which now include instant deployment of SSL secure sites through OneClickSSL from GlobalSign. OnApp customers include Dediserve, eApps and VPS.NET, to name a few.

GlobalSign’s OneClickSSL technology rewrites the SSL paradigm by moving away from the traditional, long-winded and error prone process of SSL provisioning and replacing it with an automated click to “Activate SSL” workflow, which is easily understood by customers of all technical abilities. OneClickSSL revolutionizes the SSL installation process to enable full SSL Certificate installation in under a minute and is available at a number of platform levels including cPanel, Parallels Plesk, IIS and Apache, thus offering hosting companies the most efficient way to employ SSL security ever available.

“OnApp is the only cloud software provider focused totally on the hosting market. We add value to hosters not only through the core functionality of our software, but also through partnerships with leading providers like GlobalSign,” said Ditlev Bredahl, CEO at OnApp. “GlobalSign’s OneClickSSL is truly unique in the way it optimizes the SSL reselling workflow. It’s a natural fit for our hosting customers, adding real value by enabling them to automate SSL as an integrated part of their cloud hosting services.”

“We are very pleased to enter into a strategic partnership with OnApp,” said Motoo Noda, CEO GMO GlobalSign Inc, “Automating SSL through the OnApp cloud deployment platform is a huge benefit for hosting companies by eliminating the problems and costs associated with supporting SSL.”

GlobalSign has been a publicly trusted Certificate Authority since 1996 and is currently ranked as the 4th largest provider of SSL Certificates worldwide by Netcraft – a position achieved in the last 4 years since re-launching as a focused SSL Provider. Since becoming part of the GMO Internet Inc group of companies, the company has opened local offices in the US, UK, Belgium and throughout Asia.

Join GlobalSign at HostingCon between August 8th -10th 2011 in San Diego, where GlobalSign will be demoing OneClickSSL at the OnApp booth, #313. The full presentation schedule, including other GlobalSign presentations, will be available at the GlobalSign booth #627 throughout the show.
