Why Buy an SSL Certificate?

An SSL certificate lets users know that your website is safe and secure by validating it in browsers and ensuring the protection of private information. We offer a range of reliable SSL certificates to secure your hosting solution, whether that involves a single domain or many.

Standard

Standard SSL certificates are server security certificates that provide the lowest level of validation available from commercial certificate authorities.

Premium

The Premium SSL certificate is an enhanced form of the standard SSL certificate often used by eCommerce websites.


EV

Extended Validation SSL Certificates (EV SSL) function as the highest class of SSL certificates, activating both the padlock and the Green Address Bar in most browsers.



Wildcard

Wildcard SSL certificates secure website URLs and an unlimited number of subdomains under a single IP address.

Multiple Domain

Multi-domain SSL certificates allow one IP address to serve multiple domains and subdomains. All of those domains must have the same owner.

Multiple Domain EV

Extended validation multi-domain SSL certificates allow a domain owner to assign multiple domains and sub-domains to a single SSL certificate.
