We do the Hard Work for You
We will let you know what information we require; we will process the entirety of the order for you; finally, we will install and test the SSL as well. For the price of the SSL you also get a dedicated IP address, and we will move your site onto this IP (if required) at a convenient moment.
Why would I need an SSL Certificate?
If you want to conduct online transactions on your site, send and/or receive sensitive information on your site, or have a secure server to server connection, you will need an SSL Certificate to ensure that the connections and the data that they transmit are safe. They are the best way of ensuring that those who use your site can trust any submissions of sensitive data that they may be required or desire to make.
What do I need in order to use an SSL Certificate?
To use an SSL Certificate, you need to have a registered Domain Name and a Web Hosting account, with a Dedicated IP address. Each SSL Certificate we sell is mapped to your individual Domain Name and you can then choose what pages on your website you would like to secure.
Why will I need a Dedicated IP?
Dedicated IP addresses are required for any website that wants its own SSL Security Certificate. You cannot register your SSL Certificate to a Shared IP address that also Hosts other sites – it requires a specific IP tied to a specific Domain that has a specific SSL Certificate, to prove that your website is secure and trustworthy for e-commerce and sensitive information transfer.
What is the difference between SSL Certifcates?
Every Certificate has a different grade of encryption. All SSL certificates increase the security of your website for your visitors and are encrypted to very high levels, so the level of encryption is up to you. The more ‘bits’ the higher the level of encryption – many Certificates are encrypted at 128/256 bits. Essentially, it is up to you if you want to pay for a higher level of encryption! The QuickSSL and SSL Premium Certificates also come with a GeoTrust Site Seal to place on your website. This makes it visually obvious that your site uses SSL Certification – an obvious advantage if someone is trying to decide whether to use your site’s secure areas or not.
How long does my Certificate last?
SSL Certificates can be registered with us for one to three years at a time. It is worth remembering that for every renewal you process for a GeoTrust SSL your expiry date is extended for 1 month, so an annual renewal is in your best interests!
Can I have more than one SSL Certificate?
You can own as many SSL Certificates as you like, but only one Certificate can be used per individual Domain and IP.
