SSL Certificates

Security & Privacy

Secure your website and customer data

Our SSL certificates are from some of the most trusted brands in Online Security.

What is SSL?

SSL Certificates are fundamental to internet security. 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.

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 a higher ranking in search results and other benefits:

  • Establish a secure connection between a browser and a server.
  • Encrypt communication to protect sensitive information your customers provide to you.
  • Place a padlock next to your web address in the browser.
  • Authenticate an organisation’s identity and build trust.

Domain Validated SSL certificates are the easiest and most common type of SSL certificate. Organisation and Extended Validation certificates also authenticate the identity of the company or organisation that holds the certificate providing more trust to end users.

What’s the difference between certificate types?

Domain Validated

(DV)

Inexpensive, basic protection that is perfect for personal or hobby sites and small forums that need basic encryption for things like logins, contact forms, newsletter signup forms and other non-transactional data.

Organisation Validation

(OV)

Affordable protection for small businesses. Recommended for SME websites where validation of the company is important. Highly recommended for sites with low-volume eCommerce transactions.

Extended Validation

(EV)

Proven to boost customer confidence. Recommended for mid-sized to enterprise sites where visitor confidence is key. A must for websites with transactions for payments, online banking, and large eCommerce.

Wildcard SSL

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, e.g. mail.example.com, test.example.com, photos.example.com, whatever.example.com.

Upgrade to Extended Validation SSL

While all SSL certificates use similar methods to protect and validate your data, the level of trust and assertion they provide varies.

Extended Validation Certificates offer the highest level of validation and trust. They validate and display the name of the company or organisation along with the green address bar which is one of the most highly recognizable trust indicators on the web.
