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 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 Certificates and EV Certificates also authenticate the identity of the company or organization that holds the certificate providing more trust to end users.
