Secure your website with a SSL Certificate
If you don’t have the little green lock from a trusted SSL certificate, Google Chrome will tag your site as Not Secure.
It is now essential to provide a secure website environment and as a result, having an SSL certificate is a prerequisite for any website.
We include a FREE certificate with all of our domain registrations and web hosting plans and this level of security is fine for smaller websites and blogs.
Our SSL certificate is self-signed and is assigned automatically with your order.
The purpose of making an SSL certificate available free of charge is to make sure all our customer websites have a minimum level of protection using https.
Paid SSL Certificates
If you have a business website, you may want to consider a paid SSL certificate which includes a higher level of protection and support.
As far as the level of encryption is concerned, a free SSL certificate provides the same level of encryption as a paid one, but paid certificates do provide additional benefits and are highly recommended for all business websites.
Key Differences Between Free SSL and Paid SSL
Free SSL certificates only come with a Domain Validation (DV) option.
DV certificates are used only for providing a basic level of authentication.
Free SSL certificates don’t have the provision for Organization Validation (OV) and Extended Validation (EV) certificates.
Paid certificates include OV & EV options which are required for protecting business websites.
Level of Validation
When it comes to verifying a website owner’s business details before issuing a free certificate, CA does not validate anything apart from the identity of the website owner.
In the case of paid SSL certificates, verification of the identity of the website owner is a must before issuing the certificate to the site owner and in the case of OV & EV certificates, in-depth verification of the business is carried out by the certificate authority (CA).
We provide a full range of Paid SSL certificates for all types of websites and you can see the options clicking the link below, if you want to upgrade your free certificate any new certificate purchased is automatically added to your order and installed for you.
