What is an SSL certificate?

If you’re serious about doing business online, you need SSL. It’s the best way to protect user data and defend against identity theft. Many customers will refuse to do business with a website that doesn’t have an SSL certificate. Displaying your SSL Site Seal tells customers they can shop with confidence, knowing they’re protected. Different certificates provide different levels of validation.

All the features you need to protect your customers

The site seal is a graphic representation of your protection – it’s the main reason people buy SSL. It serves as a constant reminder to customers that your site is protected. Most web users know to look for a site seal, so it’s important to have one. Seals vary in appearance to reflect the differences between certs, but every SSL certificate we offer comes with a seal.

We handpick our SSL certificates to ensure strong browser ubiquity. This means that the majority of the world’s browsers will recognize these certs rather than throwing up a red flag because the company issuing the cert is unknown and its protection cannot be guaranteed. All of our certs are supported by all popular browsers.

Security is determined by the number of bits used to generate the encryption key, which is then used to encrypt the data. Most of our SSL certificates use either 256-bit or 128-bit encryption, depending on the capabilities of computer and server. Both 256- and 128-bit are industry standard for data protection.
