Key Features  –  SSL Certificates

 

Gain customer confidence

In addition to the HTTPS and lock icon, our SSLs also include McAfee SECURE. Clean websites can display the McAfee trustmark on every page to reassure visitors that your site is safe.

Get a trusted SSL certificate

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.

Safely accept credit cards on your website

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.

Better Google ranking

The world’s #1 search engine favors HTTPS-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. So an SSL not only protects your customers but helps you find more of them.

Protect sensitive information

SSL Certificates protect your customers’ sensitive information by encrypting the data they send to you, then decrypting it once you’ve received it.

World’s strongest encryption

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.

How SSL Certificates Work

First, the SSL “handshake”
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.
The padlock icon appears
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.
You’re good to go
All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that’s virtually unbreakable by hackers.
 

Frequently Asked Questions about SSL Certificates

 

What is an SSL Certificate?
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.

What are the benefits of an SSL Certificate?
Our 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 visitors know my website is safe?
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. Websites protected by FusionFly’s Premium EV SSL display a green browser bar as well, giving users the green light.

How do I install my SSL Certificate?
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 learn more here.

What is the difference between Standard SSL and Premium SSL?

All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a Premium EV SSL Certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization’s legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards.

GoDaddy’s Premium EV SSL Certificate involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number and other business information. The process takes about 30 days, but we’ve got you covered during that time. EV SSL Certs come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait.

For more information, see What are the advantages of a Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate for your business?

How visitors How long will I have to wait for my SSL certificate? my website is safe?
Standard SSLs (DV) usually take 5 minutes or less. Deluxe SSLs (OV) 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. In both cases, you can shorten your wait by making sure the domain contact information listed is up-to-date, learn more here.

For Premium (EV) 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.
