SSL Certificates

Protect your users’ data online with SSL security

What is an SSL certificate?

An SSL certificate acts as third-party verification for a website’s security. It verifies the strength of the Secure Socket Layer encryption used when a user connects to the site and connects that encryption to the organization or individual that owns and maintains the website. SSL certification and validation are a necessary piece of web security for any business that collects information from its users.

Different SSL certificates provide different levels of security, depending on the level of protection and security features your website and its users need. You may be familiar with visual elements such as Site Seals, the HTTPS:// protocol appearing in the URL, but there are less-visible functions that help protect your website and visitors.

No matter what level of security you choose, your users will recognize that your site is safe, and that leads to greater trust in your brand onlin

How SSL works

Think of SSLs as encryption warriors—the invincible muscle that keeps communication between you and your website visitors safeguarded


When someone types your website domain into their browser, your SSL Certificate automatically kicks into action, like a superhero. It encrypts the connection between their browser and your site, meaning only you and your customer can read the information exchanged


The encryption connection happens almost at the speed of light. A confirming padlock icon and ‘https://’ will appear in the browser. And if you’ve bought an Extended Validation (EV) SSL, your company name will also be displayed, so everyone knows you’re verified as 100% legit.


You’re all set with a fully encrypted line of communication between you and your website visitors. No-one else can snoop in or steal information. Your customers are protected. There’s also a warranty with all our SSL Certificates, to give you peace of mind too.

SSL certificate benefits

Customer trust is why purchasing SSL Certificates is good for websites. No hassles and great customer care are why we’re good for you.


Buy SSL Certificate encryption and you can rely on strong security to protect your customers. All communication between you and your site visitors will be fully safeguarded. For techies, this means SHA-256 and 2048 bit RSA keys, as well as Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) support.


When it comes to logistics, we have you covered – no matter what server(s) you use, our SSLs are good to go. They also cover both the ‘www’ and ‘non-www’ versions of your site, so you’re getting a cheap SSL Certificate in more ways than one.


Google displays sites not protected by SSL Certificates as ‘Not Secure’. They also rank websites with SSL higher in search results over those that don’t have them. With this in mind, ‘cheap SSL’ means so much more, because the cost of losing customers is high.


One of the main reasons for an SSL Certificate purchase is to make customers feel they’re in safe hands. Your encryption comes with a Site Seal to display on your website, from the world’s largest Certificate Authority. This, and the browser padlock, shows your audience they’re protected. Your SSL cost earns you priceless customer trust.

Here are a few of the most common questions SSL customers ask.

What is an SSL Certificate all about?

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) might sound complex, but it's actually not. When you purchase SSL Certificate options, no matter which one you choose, it encrypts the communication between you and your site visitors so no-one else can eavesdrop or steal information. It also verifies your website’s identity to make sure it’s legitimate.

What is TLS?

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is an updated version of SSL. We sell TLS, but most people still call it SSL because that’s the term everyone knows. TLS is a little more secure, so businesses like banks will insist on it, but for most websites it doesn’t make much of a difference. Our Certificates are compatible with both SSL and TLS protocols.

Who needs SSL?

Marks and devious Semikoli but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

How do I install my SSL Certificate?

When your SSL Certificate is issued, we’ll send you a Welcome email with easy instructions. After activation, the timescale for complete setup will depend on the type of Validation level you choose i.e. it varies between 10 minutes and 10 days for the Certificate Authority to perform checks.

How will people know my website is protected?

When people type your site’s domain name into their browser, the encryption confirmation will be a visible padlock and ‘https://’. You’ll also get a Site Seal to put on your website. If you want even more customer trust, OV and EV SSL Certificates verify your company is legit, not just your domain name.
