Yes, we've launched free SSL cert provisioning service as of 14 October 2020 called IsomerSSL. If your agency is open to explore this option, do let us know by dropping us an email or an enquiry here.

How much does an SSL cert cost?

It depends on what SSL cert provider and the type of cert that you purchasing, it could range from $200 to $1000 a year.

With the recent release of free SSL cert provisioning tool on Isomer, agency can now opt to use free SSL cert issued by Let's Encrypt. Certs are renewed automatically every 3 months.

Does Isomer support Google Tag Manager (GTM)?

Unfortunately no. The reason is because the use of GTM violates the Content Security Policy (CSP) we've set up to protect your site from SQL Injection or XXS attacks.

However, you can explore the use of Facebook Pixel, find our more here.

Am I on Isomer v1 or v2?
