But first of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! And may your wishes come true, and your instances be filled with joy and your database mutate (or not, haha)
We are pleased to announce that we are starting 2013 with the ability to add SSL certificates to your websites hosted on Gandi's Simple Hosting platform. And not just those issued by Gandi, but ANY valid SSL certificate!
For this, you just need a valid certificate that corresponds to the name of the domain that will be used with the website and of course an M-size or greater Simple Hosting instance. The installation is childishly simple: just paste the domain's certificate and its associated private key into the form, and there you are!
If you need more instructions, check out our page in the Wiki on the topic.
And as we are still in the Christmas spirit, and some of you may want to test this without spending too much, we're giving you a special promo code that will let you purchase a M-size instance for one month at half off the usual price ($5 instead of $10).
The promo code is the following: PAASM4SSL and it must be added, then validated (as usual) in the 'Promo Code' field during checkout. This code is only valid until February 1st, 2013.
I'll also note that if you have a domain name at Gandi, and you have not yet used your promo code for 50% off an annual instance subscription, you can benefit from an M-size instance at half off, for the next 13 months
