What is SSL?

SSL Certificates are fundamental to internet security. They are used to establish an encrypted connection and allow data to be transmitted securely between a browser or user's computer and a server or website.

Standard SSL (Domain Validated) Certificates are the easiest and most common type of SSL certificate. OV and EV Certificates also authenticate the identity of the company or organization that holds the certificate providing more trust to end users.

With our SSL certificate services, you won’t need to take manual steps to configure and deploy new certificates every year. We generate a renewal order automatically when your certificate nears the end of its validity. After payment, we will automatically configure, validate, and provision your new certificate for you.

Improve Your Search Engine Ranking

Establish trust and online security for your website visitors and business.

Google wants to make the web safer and a big part of that involves making sure that the sites people access via Google are secure. That’s why websites using SSL have been shown to benefit from higher ranking in search results.

There’s also a lot more reasons why you should consider adding SSL to your website:

Encrypt sensitive data
Protect user privacy
Secure online transactions
Activate HTTPS and the lock icon
Prove legitimacy
Increase SEO rank

What is Standard DV SSL?

Domain Validation certificates offer an economical and quick way to implement SSL to your website. Domain Validated certificates verify you own the domain, but do not perform any additional organization level validation.

Domain Validated certificates are ideal for personal websites, blogs and social media, or any sites that are not transmitting private and confidential information. A Domain Validated certificate activates the browser padlock and enables the use of https to assure your website visitors and customers that you take their privacy seriously.

What is Extended Validation SSL?

EV SSL is an Extended Validation Certificate, the highest class of SSL available today and gives more credibility and trust to your website compared to using an organization or domain validated SSL Certificate.

Extended Validation SSL will in most cases display your company or site name in green. This prominent visual verification provides visitors added confidence that steps were taken to confirm the identity of the website and business they’re visiting, increasing user trust in your website and its credibility – this is why most large companies and organizations choose EV certificates.

What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate?

Wildcard SSL allows you to secure an unlimited number of subdomains on a single certificate. It’s a great solution for anyone who hosts or manages multiple sites or pages that exist on the same domain. The one-time cost of the certificate covers you for additional subdomains you may add in the future.

Unlike a standard SSL Certificate that is issued to a single Fully Qualified Domain Name only, e.g. www.yourdomain.com, which means it can only be used to secure the exact domain to which it has been issued, a Wildcard SSL Certificate is issued to *.yourdomain.com, where the asterisk represents all possible subdomains.

Wildcard SSL is an option available for DV and OV SSL Certificates.
