Which should you choose?

The right selection of your SSL certificate depends on various factors and your individual needs. Please take a close look at the following scenarios that we have compiled for you:

I have a Personal website

If you are just starting out, or want to use the SSL certificate in order to secure your personal website or blog, then usually the domain validated SSL (DV) will suffice.

This way, all traffic is encrypted but no further validation is conducted.

Or use one of our free automatically install Let’s Encrypt certificates

I have a Business website

If you are doing any business online you should at least use an OV SSL. When you’re handling any kind of customer data, the Organisation Validation (OV) will make sure that the certificate is really from your organisation (e.g. business).

This helps you to protect your business and customers from phishing websites.

Types of Websites

Organisation Validation is a great way to secure a company website, a forum, or any other website with a login page, that does not transfer payment data. Customers username and password will be transferred with end-to-end encryption.

The validation also ensures that the domain belongs to your company and not a third party.

I have an eCommerce website

If you are a trusted entity with an increased level of trustworthiness, the Extended Validation Certificate can transfer this assurance onto your website. The symbol of this trust is the green address bar in the browser, which comes with the EV SSL.

This is why not only banks and big eCommerce organisations rely on Extended Validation certificates, but government agencies also use them for secured transactions.

Types of Websites

eCommerce websites should rely on the level of trust only an EV-Certificate can provide. Only the extended verification can guarantee the real origin of a website and the safety of data auch as customer information, credit card numbers and other payment details.

If gaining the trust of your customers is important for your business, then get the green browser address bar with an Extended Validation Certificate now!

Subdomains

If your website is structured in subdomains, you can use a wildcard certificate, which works like a certificate for *.yourdomain.co.uk.

This way all your subdomains are protected by just one SSL certificate.

Types of Websites

If you own more than one domain, either with different domain names like yourdomain.co.uk and yourotherdomain.co.uk or with different top-level-domains like yourdomain.co.uk and yourdomain.com, you can always get one certificate for each domain and this way protect all your properties.

What you need to know about web hosting with SSL

In simple terms, an SSL certificate is a communications protocol that provides security for web developers and users whilst using the Internet. This type of safeguard is important since the information sent across the Internet is essentially unsecured and, in theory, could be intercepted and accessed by a third party.

SSL certificates provide a layer of confidentiality and security that ensures privacy for users when transferring sensitive information between websites or through email. For this reason an SSL, or Secure Socket Layer, is integral to the successful operation of web based business and other concerns that deal with users’ personal information.

An SSL certificate is associated with your particular domain name and so, when you buy an SSL certificate from Solidblueliquid, you are ensuring that any data sent between your server and the client is secured against external threats. The user’s browser decodes the data and displays the familiar lock icon for verification, in addition to this, rather than the usual “http” prefix, users will see “https” within the address bar.

Since there are various types of SSL certificates, each website should select the most suitable certificate for the given application.

In essence, there are three different types of SSL certificates available

  • DV – Domain Validation
  • OV – Organisation Validation
  • EV – Extended Validation

Each of these conveys a different level of trust

Domain Validation certificates are by far the most common SSL certificates. They simply provide a verification of the right of the applicant to a specified domain name – the perfect solution for smaller websites, forums, blogs, intranet and mail servers, or anyone who requires cheap SSL certificates. All traffic will be encrypted but no further validation is conducted.
Level of trust: low

The Organisation Validation certificate checks the legitimacy of a business. Organisations are strictly authenticated by checking business registry databases and documentation. The information about the business is included into the certificate. This way customers can validate the organisation operating a website. These additional checks ensure a higher level of trust and add a level of protection against phishing attacks.
Level of trust: high

For the Extended Validation certificate, extended checks verify the identity of the applicant. The Certificate Authority conducts a thorough vetting of the organisation, including verification of:

  • the legal status
  • physical operational existence
  • identity in line with official records
  • the authorised issuance of the EV SSL certificate

This type of certificate is available for all types of business, however, they are most often used by public authorities.
Level of trust: very high

SSL certificates work by establishing a trusted connection secured by end-to-end encryption between the website’s server and the client’s browser. This is accomplished almost instantly as the host and the provider communicate the particular SSL certificate and verify a common key. As the Internet has developed, so too have SSL certificates, providing increased security as external threats have become more sophisticated. This means that you will always be protected, despite the changeable nature of these external threats.

It should be noted, that the level of encryption varies between 128 and 256 bits with the higher bit count providing greater possibilities for combinations of algorithms leading to greater security. In addition to this, SSL certificates are distinguished by browser compatibility, whether for single, sub or multiple domains, and the validation process of the domain or identity of the website. These safeguards ensure the security of your website and reassure your customers regarding their sensitive, personal details and data.

SSL certificates are important, not only for the safety of users, but also for search engine optimisation (SEO) and website visibility. Since August 2014, Google has communicated that SSL should be implemented to ensure both in-house, and the Internet as a whole, is a safer place. For this reason, Google prioritises websites with valid SSL certificates, with their algorithms consistently ranking websites with SSL higher up the list.

Whilst Google still recognises other aspects as important when ranking, the security of a website is paramount to its success and it is likely that even more weight will be placed on its user safety in the future. When you buy an SSL certificate, you will be able to offer your customers assurance as to their personal data and ensure that your website ranks higher than websites without SSL. Customers will appreciate the confidence your website inspires in them and return to your site again and again.
