Reasons to buy your SSL certificate

Stronger brand identity.

Our premium certificates help increase user confidence by showing you’ve secured your true identity online after being validated by an industry-recognized Certificate Authority. So, your SSL certificate indicates to customers that your organization is committed to protecting their data and online experience.

“Not Secure.” Not good.

When visitors type a URL or follow a link to a secure website that doesn’t have an SSL, that site is immediately flagged as “Not Secure.” And that scares potential customers away. But when you have an SSL certificate, any potential “Not Secure” warning goes away – for as long as you have the SSL certificate. And that’s a good thing.

Increased SEO ranking.

Search engines heavily favor https-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. That vastly increases the likelihood customers will find you.

When you buy an SSL certificate, it provides the strongest protection for online businesses, including standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR and more.

Customers will trust you.

And that’s important because trust is the cornerstone of SSL protocol – indicative of strict validation guidelines. Our SSL certificates feature the world’s best encryption to protect sensitive data.

Safe mobile and online payment systems.

Give customers the payment options they prefer – and keep them shopping through checkout. To do that safely and securely you’ll need an SSL certificate, the industry standard for end-to-end encryption protocol to thwart hackers from getting to your sensitive data.

How SSL certificates work.

An SSL certificate creates a secure digital tunnel that blocks hackers and thieves from seeing usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and other valuable data.

First, the SSL agreement.

When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your site is most secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.

Now you're good to go.

All information passing to and from your website is now encrypted, protecting your sensitive data.

The secure padlock icon appears.

Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and https prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show visitors to your website they’re safe to browse, shop, email you, subscribe to your mailing list, etc. And if there was a Not Secure tag before, poof now it’s gone. If you install an Extended Validation (EV) SSL, the browser displays your company name to prove you’re the legit business you are.

Frequently Asked Questions about SSL certificates:

SSL Certificates are SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates that authenticate websites and allow them to switch from HTTP to HTTPS encryption, protecting the exchange of valuable information visitors send to or receive from a website. When you’ve got an SSL certificate protecting your site, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is encrypted. We can install your certificate and protect sensitive customer data on your site.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, the SSL certificate displays information to verify the owner of a website and encrypting web traffic with SSL/TLS — including the public key, the issuer of the certificate and associated subdomains. And SSL, commonly known as TLS, is a protocol for encrypting Internet traffic and verifying server identity. All websites with an HTTPS web address uses SSL/TLS. 

It’s very important that you have an SSL certificate on your site to instill user’s trust: you need it to keep user data secure, verify ownership of your website, and to prevent attackers from creating a false version of your site.

Authentication 
SSL certificates verify clients that owns the domain. This prevents domain attacks and spoofs.

Encryption
SSL/TLS encryption is possible via the public-and-private key pairing that facilitates SSL certificates. Clients get the public key to open a TLS connection from the server’s SSL certificate.

HTTPS 
SSL certificates are required for the HTTPS web address. HTTPS (the secure version of HTTP) appear on websites that have traffic encrypted by SSL/TLS. Plus, in addition to securing user data, HTTPS displays a credible “trust factor” from the perspective of the site visitor. 

There are three types of SSL certificates, GoDaddy offers them all. Each have with varying levels of security. Understanding what kind of SSL certificate is important when doing anything involving personal user data.

  • Domain validated (DV) SSL certificate. DV certificates verify the owner of the site. The Certificate Authority sends an email to the website’s registered email address to verify its identity. No detailed information about the company is required, and the DV Certificate is the easiest to obtain and thus have a lowest level of trust. 
  • Organizationally validated (OV) SSL certificate. The Certificate Authority is required to validate the organization, physical location address and the website’s domain name. The process takes about 2-3 days. OV certificates have a moderate level of trust, and are fine for public-facing websites with lower-level transactions.
  • Extended validation (EV) SSL certificate. This is the SSL certificate with the highest level of security and is optimum for sites that deal with sensitive information. Before issuing an EV SSL certificate, the Certificate Authority thoroughly reviews the applicant; The review process entails examination of corporate documents, confirmation of identity, and verifies relevant information through a third-party database. 

All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a Premium EV SSL certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization’s legal and physical existence is verified according to strict industry standards.

When you buy a Premium EV SSL certificate, it involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number and other business information. The process takes about 30 days, but we’ve got you covered during that time. EV SSL certificates come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait.

2. Do you have a business or personal website?

Unless you sell things on your personal website, a Standard SSL certificate (DV) is fine. This is also true for informational business sites. eCommerce websites should use a single-domain Standard SSL certificate (DV) or Premium SSL certificate (EV).

3. Which type of web hosting server do you use?

Our SSL certificates work on most hosting and server configurations. To protect multiple domains on Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010 or Live® Communications Server, use a Multiple Domain UCC SSL.

4. How many different domains do you need to protect?

Wildcard SSL certificates cover multiple subdomains. For example, use a Wildcard to protect *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com and any other subdomains.

UCC SSL certificates will cover multiple domains, subdomains and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com, and www.awesomeexample.com.

5. Do you need an SSL certificate that supports Intel vPro technology for remote PC management? 

You’ll need our OV Deluxe certificate.

A Standard SSL (DV) usually takes 5 minutes or less. A Deluxe SSL (OV) takes 3-5 business days, because we’re validating not just domain ownership but also the existence of the organization or business on the SSL application.

For Premium (EV) certificates, there is an extensive vetting process that starts with an in-depth application. Before you start, pull together details about your business, such as registration number, incorporation or registration agent and any relevant jurisdiction information.

Depending on how your website is configured, you might want to use something other than a single-domain SSL certificate.

  • Wildcard SSL certificates cover all of a domain name’s subdomains. For example, you can secure *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com and any other subdomains.
  • UCC SSL certificates can cover multiple subdomains, unique domain names and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com and www.awesomeexample.com.
