Domain Validation certificates offer an economical and quick way to implement SSL to your website. Domain Validated certificates verify you own the domain, but do not perform any additional organization level validation. Domain Validated certificates are ideal for personal websites, blogs and social media, or any sites that are not transmitting private and confidential information. A Domain Validated certificate activates the browser padlock and enables the use of https to assure your website visitors and customers that you take their privacy seriously.

EV SSL is an Extended Validation Certificate, the highest class of SSL available today and gives more credibility and trust to your website compared to using an organization or domain validated SSL Certificate.

Extended Validation SSL will in most cases display your company or site name in green. This prominent visual verification provides visitors added confidence that steps were taken to confirm the identity of the website and business they’re visiting, increasing user trust in your website and its credibility – this is why most large companies and organizations choose EV certificates.

Wildcard SSL allows you to secure an unlimited number of subdomains on a single certificate. It’s a great solution for anyone who hosts or manages multiple sites or pages that exist on the same domain. The one-time cost of the certificate covers you for additional subdomains you may add in the future.

Unlike a standard SSL Certificate that is issued to a single Fully Qualified Domain Name only, e.g. www.yourdomain.com, which means it can only be used to secure the exact domain to which it has been issued, a Wildcard SSL Certificate is issued to *.yourdomain.com, where the asterisk represents all possible subdomains.

Wildcard SSL is an option available for DV and OV SSL Certificates.

What is SSL?

SSL Certificates are fundamental to internet security. They are used to establish an encrypted connection and allow data to be transmitted securely between a browser or user’s computer and a server or website.

  • Establishes a secure connection between a browser and a server
  • Encrypts communication to protect sensitive information your customers provide to you
  • Places a padlock next to your web address in the browser
  • Authenticates an organization’s identity

Standard SSL (Domain Validated) Certificates are the easiest and most common type of SSL certificate. OV and EV Certificates also authenticate the identity of the company or organization that holds the certificate providing more trust to end users.

Improve Your Search Engine Ranking

Establish trust and online security for your website visitors and business.

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 higher ranking in search results.

There’s also a lot more reasons why you should consider adding SSL to your website:

Encrypt sensitive data

Protect user privacy

Secure online transactions

Activate HTTPS and the lock icon

Prove legitimacy

Increase SEO rank

Browsers have changed, don't get left behind

Web pages not served via HTTPS are now being displayed as ‘not secure’ in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Don’t let your website be one of them. Add SSL today.

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 and location of companies and organisations to give customers added confidence when dealing with businesses online.

Domain Validation (DV)

Organization Validation (OV)

Extended Validation (EV)

While the need for online security is universal, not all SSL Certificates are created equal. The guide below is designed to help you decide which type of certificate is right for you.

Domain Validation (DV)

Verifies ownership and control of the domain name only
Issued in minutes
Maintains browser compliance
Ideal for non-critical web pages

Think of DV like getting a library card—no confirmation of who you really are, very minimal requirements to obtain and issued very quickly.

Organization Validation (OV)

Verifies ownership and control of the domain name only
Issued in minutes
Maintains browser compliance
Ideal for non-critical web pages

Think of DV like getting a library card—no confirmation of who you really are, very minimal requirements to obtain and issued very quickly.

Extended Validation (EV)

Verifies ownership and control of the domain name only
Issued in minutes
Maintains browser compliance
Ideal for non-critical web pages

Think of DV like getting a library card—no confirmation of who you really are, very minimal requirements to obtain and issued very quickly.

SSL Certificates enable data encryption on the internet and allow data to be transmitted securely from a web server to a browser. With SSL, your website can use the https protocol and will display a padlock in end users web browsers to indicate the connection is secure.

SSL Certificates are an essential part of the internet. 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.

There are 3 different levels of vetting that SSL Certificates are based upon. Domain Validated (DV) , Organization Validated (OV), and Extended Validation (EV). The major difference between the types of certificate relates to the information the Certificate Authority, RapidSSL, GeoTrust and DigiCert, requires and validates in order to issue a certificate. The higher levels of certificate require more information, and often is displayed in the browser bar. EV SSL for example turns the browser bar green and displays the organization name to visitors to generate more trust.

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. Learn more

EV, or Extended Validation, is the highest class of SSL available today and gives more credibility and trust to your website than other SSL Certificates. They include features such as the green address bar and display of your company name that have been proven to boost trust and consumer confidence.

You can switch to us at any time. We offer highly competitive pricing and if you already have an existing certificate, we’ll add any remaining validity that you have on your existing competitor SSL Certificate up to a maximum of an additional 12 months. Learn more
