SSL Certificates

There is only one question you need to ask yourself, would I do business with somebody I don't trust? NO!!!

Trust is the most important component of any business, and this is especially true in the faceless and nameless world of the internet. A company only has so much time, usually a few seconds, to establish trust with a customer online, so making a good first impression is vital. That's why SSL certificates, especially Extended Validation or EV certificates, play such a vital role for successful websites, they are the most universally recognized symbols of trust and security on the internet.

SSL Certificates are absolutely necessary for your business, and the cost of ignoring them is far greater than the minimal upfront investment of your time and energy.

We have partnered with some of the most prestigious brands in web security: Symantec, RAPIDSSL and GeoTrust. This partnership allows us to purchase certificates as significantly discounted rates and project those benefits onto you.

SSL Levels Explained

LEVEL 1: DOMAIN VALIDATION

This is the lowest level of authentication used to issue SSL certificates. The Certificate Authority (CA) will issue this certificate to anyone listed as the domain contact in the public record associated with a domain name. As a result, DV certificates are issued very quickly. No company information is checked or displayed on the certificate, making it easier for criminals to gain this type of certificate from CAs.


WHEN TO USE DV :

Situations where trust and credibility are less important but require a sense of security

  • Easy to obtain
  • Fast issuance
  • Use only for web-based applications that are not at risk for phishing or fraud
  • Don't use for public facing sites or sites that handle sensitive data

LEVEL 2: ORGANIZATION VALIDATION

OV is the more secure step up from DV. As well as checking up on ownership of the domain name, the CA will also carry out additional vetting of the organisation and individual applying for the certificate. This might include checking the address where the company is registered and the name of a specific contact. This vetted company information is displayed to visitors on the certificate, making ownership more visible.


WHEN TO USE OV :

Public-facing websites dealing with less sensitive transactions

  • More thorough vetting process than DV
  • Company information is displayed to users
  • Provides a certain level of trust about the company who owns the website
  • Doesn’t offer the highest visible display of trust like EV SSL (green browser bar)

LEVEL 3: EXTENDED VALIDATION

This is the best in SSL certificates. EV verification guidelines require the CA to run a much more rigorous identity check on the organisation or individual applying for the certificate. Sites with an EV SSL certificate have a green browser address bar and a field appears with the name of the website owner and the name of the CA that issued the certificate and are more noticeable by visitors.


WHEN TO USE EV :

E-commerce sites and websites handling credit card and other sensitive data

  • Highest visible display of online trust with a green address bar
  • Increase user trust, lower bounce rates and shopping cart abandonments
  • Strengthen your credibility and brand by showcasing your commitment to online security

HTTPS Everywhere

Internet-wide encryption is happening, make sure you’re up to date

The titans of the web industry have spoken and their message is loud and clear: every website needs basic encryption as a minimum standard. There was a time when SSL/TLS was thought to only be necessary for ecommerce websites and other sites that collect sensitive user information - but no longer! The 100% encryption movement has begun and is now the way of the future.

All sites need SSL encryption. As your web host, we would be remiss if we didn’t alert you about this important industry initiative and ensure that your site is well equipped to adapt to the changing internet landscape.

This is an industry-lead initiative to get all websites to utilize basic SSL/TLS encryption as the minimum standard. Simply put: if you have a website, it needs an SSL certificate. But don’t take our word for it, just listen to what the leaders of the internet have been saying and the recent initiatives they’ve been pushing...

Google Gives an SEO Ranking Boost to Sites with SSL/TLS

Back in 2014, Google announced they were going to begin factoring SSL into their ranking algorithm. Since then, it’s now known that websites using SSL/TLS see as much as a 5% increase in visibility versus their unencrypted counterparts. The importance of SSL/TLS on search engine ranking is only expected to increase as Search Engines further push for an HTTPS Everywhere environment.

Warning

Browsers Starting to Warn Users When Accessing Sites without SSL/TLS

Perhaps you have already run into these warnings... But if you haven’t yet, it’s surely only a matter of time. Browsers like Chrome have slowly been increasing the visibility of non-SSL warnings, and in the very near future - browsers will begin actively warning users when they access a site that does not have SSL/TLS installed on it.

Browsers Only Supporting HTTP/2 with Encrypted Sites

HTTP/2 - the second major version of the HTTP network protocol - has been ratified by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) and now is used in 18% of global traffic and rapidly climbing. The benefits of HTTP/2 are 20-30% decrease in page load times and an improved connection model, among many others.
