What’s An SSL Certificate ?
In Short, SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. SSL Certificates validate your website’s identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps hackers from spying on any exchange/ transaction between your website and the site visitor or user.
Why Do I Need an SSL Certificate ?
SSL Certificates build your site’s visitors or users’ trust and prove to them that you value their privacy and security. An SSL Certificate protects your customers’ sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server or hosting. Website security starts from installing an SSL Certificate on your server. It’s highly recommended if your website accepts/ receives information that is not intended to other people or a third party. Moreover, SSL Certificate is required by most merchant account services before approving your merchant account for online transactions.
Which SSL Certificate Do I Need?
Your need and location will help you determine what kind of SSL Certificate you can buy. Our certificates are issued everywhere with a few exceptions. If you have a business or personal website, unless you’re selling products on your personal website, a Standard SSL (DV) can be just fine to secure your site. We recommend to eCommerce websites to buy and use a business level Standard SSL (DV) or Premium SSL (EV). Our SSL certificates work on most hosting and server configurations. If you intend to protect multiple sub-domains with an SSL Certificate, please buy and use the WildCard SSL Certificate. Wildcard SSLs cover multiple subdomains. For example, *.mydomain.com, which would cover account.mydomain.com, www.mydomain.com and any other subdomains. For more information, please contact our support team.
