SSL certificates are needed if you want to host a secure (HTTPS) website. Customers of our hosting accounts can use a free, domain-validated SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt. This can be enabled using the customer control panel.
We can also provide a number of different types of commercial certificates:
- Domain Validated
A Domain Validated SSL certificate is the simplest option, with the most rapid turnaround. These certificates authenticate a single server, for example www.yourdomain.com, which also covers yourdomain.com.
If you have many servers that require certificates, a Wildcard certificate may be more cost-effective. This certificate validates as many servers within your domain as you want, with the proviso that the * represents only one level of domain name, so a wildcard certificate for *.yourdomain.com works for foobar.yourdomain.com but not foo.bar.yourdomain.com.
- Extended Validation
An Extended Validation certificate produces the "Green Bar" in modern web browsers, indicating that the Certification Authority has followed a specific set of identity verification criteria. These criteria require extensive verification of your company's identity by the CA before the certificate is issued, and are intended, via the "green bar" indicator, to give users added confidence that they are dealing with a legitimate company. Like the Domain Validated certificate, they authenticate a single server.
