SSL certificates are fundamental to internet security. They are used to establish an encrypted connection and enable secure data transmission between a browser or user computer and a server or website.
- Establishes a secure connection between a browser and a server.
- Encrypts communications to protect sensitive information your customers provide to you.
- Places a padlock next to your web address in the browser.
- Authenticates the identity of a company.
Standard SSL (domain validated) certificates are the simplest and most common type of SSL certificates. OV and EV certificates also authenticate the identity of the company or organization that owns the certificate, which gives end users more confidence.
SSL certificates enable data encryption on the Internet and the secure transmission of data from a web server to a browser. With SSL, your website can use the https protocol and will display a padlock on end users' web browsers to indicate that the connection is secure.
There are 3 different levels of verification that SSL certificates are based on. Domain Validated (DV), Company Validated (OV) and Extended Validation (EV). The main difference between the certificate types is the information that the certification authority, RapidSSL, GeoTrust and Symantec need and validate in order to issue a certificate. The higher certificate levels require more information and are often displayed in the browser bar. For example, EV SSL colors the browser bar green and shows visitors the name of the company to create more trust.
A wildcard SSL certificate offers the same encryption and authentication functions as other SSL certificates, but can also be applied to an unlimited number of subdomains on a website. A wildcard SSL certificate supports both the root domain (example.com) and its subdomains.
