If you don’t have the little green lock from a trusted SSL certificate, Google Chrome will tag your site as Not Secure.
The green lock in the browser bar and the "s" in https mean a site is secure in every language. Have both on your site to show your visitors you care that their data is safe.
Trust is the cornerstone of SSL protocol and that means we adhere to strict validation guidelines. We’ve been on the Online Trust Alliance Honor Roll as SSL providers and diligently issue certificates that all browsers can trust.
If you want to sell to a much larger audience you need to give customers the payment options they prefer — AND an SSL to keep them clicking through to checkout.

SSL Certificates protect your customers' sensitive information by encrypting the data they send to you, then decrypting it once you’ve received it.
Our SSLs use SHA-2 and 2048-bit encryption to protect sensitive data. It’s the strongest encryption on the market today and it is virtually uncrackable.
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your site is most secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.
Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show them they’re safe to share personal details. If you install an EV (Extended Validation) SSL, the browser will activate the green bar and display your company name to prove you're legit.
All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that's virtually unbreakable by hackers.
When your SSL certificate is issued, we send an email to let you know. What happens next depends on where your site is hosted and the options you chose when you bought the certificate.
If you chose web hosting, Website Builder or Online Store will take care of everything for you. If you host your website with another company or use our VPS or Dedicated Servers,

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it's really not. SSL Certificates validate your website's identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on any exchange between you and your shoppers.
When you have an SSL Certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can't be viewed by cyber crooks.
SSL Certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL Cert protects your customers' sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server. SSL is the standard for web security, and a Server Certificate is required by most merchant account services – you'll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.
How you build your website is entirely up to you. In fact, most basic secure websites can be hand-coded using HTML.
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address. While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate's status and details, seeing for themselves that it's safe to send sensitive information to your website.
Answer these questions to help find the SSL you need:
Where are you located?
Our certificates are issued worldwide with a few exceptions. Check this list to see if you're covered.
Do you have a business or personal website?
Unless you sell things on your personal website, a Positive SSL is fine. This is also true for informational business sites. eCommerce websites should use a single-domain Positive SSL or Comodo SSL.
Which type of web hosting server do you use?
Our SSL certificates work on most hosting and server configurations. To protect multiple domains on Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010 or Live® Communications Server, use a Multiple Domain UCC SSL.
How many different domains do you need to protect?
Wildcard SSLs cover multiple subdomains. For example, use a Wildcard to protect *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com and any other subdomains.
UCC SSLs will cover multiple domains, subdomains and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com, and www.awesomeexample.com.
Do you need an SSL certificate that supports Intel vPro technology for remote PC management?
You’ll need our Deluxe Certificate (OV).
How long will I have to wait for my SSL certificate?
take 3-5 business days, as we’re validating not just domain ownership but also the existence of the organization or business on the SSL application.
For certificates, there is an extensive vetting process that starts with an in-depth application. Before you start, pull together details about your business, such as registration number, incorporation or registration agent and any relevant jurisdiction information.
How do I create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)?
This depends on the software you use on your web server. Learn more

What’s a Unified Communications Certificate (UCC)?
A Unified Communications Certificate (UCC) is an SSL that secures multiple domain names as well as multiple host names within a domain name. A UCC SSL lets you secure a primary domain name and up to 99 additional Subject Alternative Names (SANs) with a single SSL. For example you can use a UCC to protect www.domains1.com, www.domains2.net and www.domains3.org.
UCCs are compatible with shared hosting and ideal for Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010, and Microsoft Live® Communications Server. However, the site seal and certificate "Issued To" information will only list the primary domain name. Please note that any secondary hosting accounts will be listed in the certificate as well, so if you do not want sites to appear 'connected' to each other, you should not use this type of certificate.
A Wildcard SSL Cert protects your primary domain, and an unlimited number of its subdomains. For example, a single Wildcard Certificate can secure both www.coolexample.com and blog.coolexample.com.
Wildcard Certificates secure the common name and all subdomains at the level you specify when you submit your SSL request.
