HP Offers Free Comodo Certificates with Servers

HP makes it even easier to run a home server like a business by providing a free Comodo multi-domain digital certificate with each new MediaSmart Server.

With the MediaSmart Server, home-based computer networks can support several different domains. The free multi-domain certificate reduces the administration needed to integrate the home network with home-based business needs. "One Comodo multi-domain certificate can easily support up to 30 domains", said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect at Comodo. "Most home server users will not need that many domains, but who wouldn't appreciate that kind of capability?"

Making home networks available as websites gives home users the ability to store their media at home but access it online: pictures, videos, music and computer backups. To publish information online, users protect it and control access by setting up a domain. HP offers subdomains to MediaSmart customers free for the first year. For users who want custom domain names, it partners with TZO Corporation to offer them at cost-competitive fees.

But browsers can't tell the difference between home-based URLs and business websites. They expect to see digital certificates when they display websites, and they send up warning messages if they do not see the certificates. Now, HP ensures that MediaSmart owners protect their domains, and it ends the warning messages, by including a free 5-year Comodo SSL certificate with each server.

HP offers the domain and SSL certificate services in partnership with Comodo and TZO DNS division of Tzolkin Corporation.
