What are SSL certificates?

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
  • Places a padlock next to your web address in the browser
  • Authenticates an organization's identity
  • Encrypts communication to protect sensitive information your customers provide to you

Improve Your Search 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.

Help me choose the right type of certificate

The guide below is designed to help you decide which type of certificate is right for you.

Domain validation (DV)

  • Issued in minutes
  • Maintains browser compliance
  • Verifies ownership and control of the domain name only

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)

  • Issued within one day
  • Maintains browser compliance
  • Enhanced validation including authenticating the identity of the applicant

Ideal for more sensitive webpages such as login pages

Think of OV like getting a driver’s license—more hoops to jump through than a library card but more trusted as a form of identification.

Extended validation (EV)

  • Typically issued within 1-3 days
  • Maintains browser and other industry compliance
  • Standards-based approach to authentication, representing the highest level of authentication for SSL Certificates

Ideal for sensitive webpages including ecommerce, online banking, account signups

Think of EV like getting a passport—much more stringent processes, longer lead times and more verification of who you are than with a library card or driver’s license. Recognized internationally as the most trusted way to verify your identity.
