Do you use SHA-1 or SHA-2 for SSL certificates?


InclusiveHost issues all new SSL certificates with the SHA-2 hash function automatically. This means that our certificates are all compatible with the latest security methods and procedures.

The SHA-1 hash function is now out of date and viewed as insecure as this was released about 20 years ago. While SHA-1 has more compatibility for very old systems, the security threat is too high for this to be used in 2015 and beyond. 

If you have any questions about our SSL certificates, please open up a ticket or contact us via live chat.
