SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. An SSL certificate validates the identity of your website and adds a layer of encryption. This prevents hackers and other malicious parties from accessing or intercepting sensitive information that a visitor might enter on that website. Non-secure connections, or sites on an HTTP connection, are vulnerable to malicious attacks.
For Standard SSL certificates (DV), these are fastest. They are usually installed in just a few minutes, but may take up to 24 hours.
This depends on if your website is for personal use, small business use, or large business use. For most basic websites, the Standard SSL (1-Site) plan will work. If your website is an online store or for larger business website, then a Premium SSL (1-Site) plan is going to be your best option as it will provide additional protection and validation for your business.
Depending on whether you need to secure more than one site will determine whether or not you will need our 1-Site plan or 5-Site Plan. You will want to select our 5-Site Plan if you need SSL protection for 5 or more websites.
Lastly, if you need an SSL Certificate that covers your primary domain and all of your subdomains, our Standard SSL (Wildcard) plan is the best option to go with.
After purchasing an SSL certificate, you will receive an email letting you know when your certificate is ready for installation.
If you have purchased web hosting, dedicated hosting, vps hosting, online store, or Website Builder through us, your SSL should be automatically installed.
