Frequently asked questions about our SSL certificates

What is an SSL certificate?

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It's the industry-standard security technology for encrypting information sent between a web server (i.e. your website) and a visitor's web browser. SSL ensures the link between the server and browser is private and secure, safeguarding any sensitive information sent between the two. A valid SSL certificate proves that your site is protected.

SSL certificates

What is HTTPS?

HTTP, (or Hyper Text Transfer Protocol to give it its full name), is the standard way to exchange data between servers and browsers. In HTTPS, the S stands for ”secure” which means that the site you are browsing is protected by an SSL certificate.

This is really important for sites that collect sensitive info from visitors, like credit card numbers or address details. You can see if a website is secure by looking at your browser’s address bar and checking the address begins with “https“ rather than just “http”.

What SSL certificate is right for my website?

An SSL cert is a good idea for any website. Not only will the added security put your visitors’ minds at ease, SSL can improve your search engine rankings. Websites that constantly relay sensitive information, such as online shops, will need even higher security levels, like those provided by our Extended Validation SSL certificate.

What kind of site do you have?

A personal blog / hobby site
For a personal blog, hobby site, or any website that doesn’t represent a business, we recommend our Domain Validated SSL service. A Domain Validated SSL certificate is quick and easy to install, encrypts all page views, provides a green padlock icon in the browser address bar, and validates your domain name via email.

Large website / personal blog / hobby site
A Wildcard Validated SSL cert is recommended for any large website with multiple subdomains. For example: your main website may be "www.mybusiness.co.uk", with a shop at "shop.mybusiness.co.uk", and a blog at "blog.mybusiness.co.uk". A standard SSL certificate would only cover one of these subdomains, which is where a Wildcard Validated SSL comes in very handy. Rather than having to purchase a separate SSL certificate for each of your subdomains you can secure all of them with a single Wildcard SSL cert. Neat, eh?

Business website / online shop
Any kind of business website (or any sites that send and receive sensitive customer information) will hugely benefit from an Extended Validation SSL certificate. Extended Validation gives your customers extra peace of mind by not only encrypting your web pages, but also by adding your company name to the green padlock area in the address bar of the browser. To get this additional authentication, some details of your website and business (such as location and company number) are verified by the SSL certificate issuing body. This means your customers know beyond any doubt you are who you say you are and that their personal data is safe.

What is the warranty policy for your SSL certificates?

All our SSL certs come with a warranty, covering your customers against loss of money when making payments on an SSL-secured site. The value of cover varies depending on the SSL certification purchased and is provided by our SSL vendor GeoTrust.

Value of cover:

  • Domain Validated: Up to $500,000 USD warranty
  • Wildcard Validation: Up to $1.25 million USD warranty
  • Extended Validation: Up to $1.25 million USD warranty

Full legal documentation for our SSL certificates can be found here.

  • For Domain Validated (DV) SSL certificates and its Wildcard version, the product name is RapidSSL
