Registering a domain name with Hotbox Studios guarantees your ownership of that domain indefinitely. The domain is registered in your name with Nominet; Hotbox Studios administers the domain on your behalf although all ownership is in your name. If for any reason you decide to transfer the domain there are no additional charges imposed by Hotbox Studios.

SSL Certificate

We highly recommend you add an SSL to your website.

Without one, your website will be marked as non-secure in Google Chrome. Over 70% of people browse the web using Google Chrome.

The reason your website will be marked as non-secure is that Google marks any website without an SSL that accepts a login and password, as non-secure. As every modern website has a Content Management System (CMS), any modern website without an SSL will be marked as non-secure.

Your website being marked as non-secure will impact your online presence.

We've also found that adding an improves a website’s online presence e.g. improves search engine keyword results as Google prefers websites with SSLs.

Therefore, if you don’t already have one setup we strongly advise that you add an SSL to your website.
