SSL is no longer a buzzword and if you don't have a certificate yet, it's time to learn about it and make sure your websites have SSL encryption. Make sure your web pages are loading with the Padlock next to your URL.

How SSL Works

An SSL certificate does a lot more than add the Padlock that you see in your web browser. An SSL certificate takes any data entered in forms (logins, email contact forms, shopping cart checkout, payment info, etc) and encrypts the data prior to processing it.

How HTTPS Encryption Works

Browser Warnings

You have likely noticed that all browsers (desktop, tablet and mobile) are all displaying a 'not secure' notification to you when you visit a website that does not have a valid SSL certificate.

HTTP Browser Warning

Search Engine Rankings Boost

Although no search engine ranking signals are made public, it has been noted several times that search engines are placing additional emphasis to rank sites higher that use the HTTPS protocol.

Validation Types

Domain Validation (DV)
Domain Validation is the quickest way to get a certificate issued. The only verification required is control of your domain and the certificate can be issued within minutes.

Organization Validation (OV)
Organization Validation requires a little bit more work than the Domain Validated certificates. In addition to verifying ownership of your domain, you will also need to be able to provide a business document (utility bill or similar).

Extended Validation (EV)
EV certificates provide the 'Green Address Bar' in web browsers and require the most validation. In addition to proving ownership of your domain and providing business documents, Sectigo or Geotrust will also be calling you to verify your phone number.

Single Domain vs. Wildcard
