Frequently Asked Questions

What is an SSL certificate?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is an encryption layer that encodes information that is exchanged between a client and a server, protecting the transmission of sensitive and private data.
An SSL certificate allows you to apply SSL encryption technology to your site, so that information traveling to and from it is encrypted. SSL certificates are expected by consumers for any site that handles sensitive information like identity information, credit card numbers, or confidential records.

Why do I need an SSL certificate for my site?

If your site sends or receives sensitive information, customers expect it to be secured with an SSL certificate. Many will leave your site if they see that it is not secured. Furthermore, Google now rank sites that use an SSL certificate higher than sites that do not, so having an SSL certificate on your site can boost your search engine ranking.

What is Wildcard Support?

WildCard support means that your SSL certificate can support an unlimited number of subdomains at no extra cost. For instance, you may wish to secure images.domain.com, secure.domain.com, clients.domain.com - this is only possible when wildcard support is selected. Wildcard support is available on our Basic and Deluxe certificates, it is currently not possible on an EV SSL certificate..

How many domains can I install the certificate on?

By default the certificate will support one domain, and will function both with and without the "www.". If you need a certificate for more than one domain, you can add more domains using the form above.

Can I upgrade my hosting plan at a later stage?

Yes, you can switch between hosting plans at any time and our prices are pro-rated meaning you simply pay the difference of the new plan. Upgrades are instant between shared hosting plans and there is no downtime.

How does an SSL certificate work?

An SSL certificate is a file installed on the web server that a web site is running on. This file is composed of two segments. The first is the public key, which encrypts data. The second is the private key, which decrypts data. When a client, such as a web browser, connects to an SSL secured server a unique session is created using these two keys. All data transmitted during this session is protected, and cannot be decrypted by any party other than that specific client and the server.

What benefit is there to purchasing an organisation or extended validation certificate?

Low assurance certificates encrypt the connection. Higher validation certificates perform the same encryption, and add peace of mind for your visitors by showing them that the certificate authority has validated your site as belonging to a legitimate business. They are proven to increase conversion rates and are a must-have for e-commerce web sites.

What does the green address bar do?

The green address bar gives an intuitive visual cue that your business is legitimate. The green bar is only available with Wildcard certificates. In contrast, major web browsers have integrated anti-phishing protection so that known phishing sites will display a red address bar. Studies have shown a strong, positive impact for businesses that use Wildcard certificates.
