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.
Establishes a secure connection between a browser and a server
Encrypts communication to protect sensitive information your customers provide to you
Places a padlock next to your web address in the browser
Authenticates an organization’s identity
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.
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
Increase SEO rank
What is an SSL Certificate?
SSL Certificates enable data encryption on the internet and allow data to be transmitted securely from a web server to a browser. With SSL, your website can use the https protocol and will display a padlock in end users web browsers to indicate the connection is secure.
Why do I need an SSL Certificate?
SSL Certificates are an essential part of the internet. They not only encrypt communication between your computer and the server where a website is located, but they also provide verification that a site is what it claims to be.
What are the different types of SSL?
There are 3 different levels of vetting that SSL Certificates are based upon. Domain Validated (DV) , Organization Validated (OV), and Extended Validation (EV). The major difference between the types of certificate relates to the information the Certificate Authority, RapidSSL, GeoTrust and DigiCert, requires and validates in order to issue a certificate. The higher levels of certificate require more information, and often is displayed in the browser bar. EV SSL for example turns the browser bar green and displays the organization name to visitors to generate more trust.
What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate
A Wildcard SSL certificate provides the same encryption and authentication features as other SSL certificates but can also be applied to an unlimited number of subdomains of a website. A Wildcard SSL certificate supports the root domain (example.com) as well as its subdomains. Learn more
What are the advantages of an EV SSL Certificate?
EV, or Extended Validation, is the highest class of SSL available today and gives more credibility and trust to your website than other SSL Certificates. They include features such as the green address bar and display of your company name that have been proven to boost trust and consumer confidence.

Help Me Choose The Right Type of Certificate
While the need for online security is universal, not all SSL Certificates are created equal. The guide below is designed to help you decide which type of certificate is right for you.
Domain Validation (DV) Ideal for non-critical web pages
Verifies ownership and control of the domain name only

Organization Validation (OV) Ideal for more sensitive webpages such as login pages
Enhanced validation including authenticating the identity of the applicant
Issued within one day
Maintains browser compliance
Think of OV like getting a driver’s license—more hoops to jump through than a library card but more trusted as a form of identification.

Standards-based approach to authentication, representing the highest level of authentication for
