SSL Certificates

Protect Visitor Information and Secure Transactions

Increase customer confidence in your website with a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate — a method of encrypting data transmissions across the Internet. This is what causes your browser to show the 'Lock' icon when visiting secure websites, such as those of banks and financial institutions.

How SSL Works? Types of SSL Certificates

Types of SSL Certificates

Standard SSL Certificates

Standard SSL certificates are verified according to the domain name. Typically, this is done by sending an email to an address listed in the WHOIS record for the domain. This ensures that the person requesting the SSL certificate has control of the domain name in question.

Wildcard SSL Certificates

A Wildcard certificate is similar to a Standard SSL certificate, except that it can be used with multiple subdomains of a domain.

Organization Validation (OV) SSL Certificates

With an Organization Validated (OV) SSL certificate the certificate authority will verify the actual business that is attempting to get the certificate. This ensures that the organization requesting the SSL certificate is a real entity.

Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates

Extended Validation (EV) certificates use a higher level of authentication and were designed to increase customer confidence in ecommerce through a stringent verification process and specific browser cues like the green address bar.

Code Signing SSL Certificates

A Code Signing certificate is used in the process of digitally signing executables and scripts to confirm the software author and guarantee that the code has not been altered or corrupted since it was signed by use of a cryptographic hash.

SAN-UC SSL Certificates

A Unified Communications/Subject Alternative Name SSL Certificate enables you to easily protect multiple domains and sub-domains using just one SSL. It supports MS Exchange 2007/2010 and OCS 2007.

How SSL Works

A SSL certificate is digitally "signed" by a certificate authority that web browsers already trust. This allows the web browser to verify the identity of a secure site before sending private personal information, such as bank account or credit card numbers.

You should have a SSL certificate if you are collecting any personal information online or if you want to share sensitive information over the Internet. By taking care of authentication and encryption, SSL certificates protect your website against:

  • Spoofing: Unprotected website pages can be copied, and online criminals can use your domain name to collect money and personal information from your customers and visitors.
  • Unauthorized Disclosure: When sensitive information is sent unprotected over the Internet, it's easy for hackers to capture and use it for fraudulent activities.
  • Data Alteration: Transactions can be intercepted and edited either accidentally or intentionally.
