Have questions about SSL Certificates? We have your answers below!
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. An SSL Certificate is installed on a web server to authenticate your website's identity. This means that the website is what it claims to be. In other words, it proves your identity to your visitors so they can be sure they are seeing your site, and not a fake or bogus website.
The other key function of an SSL Certificate is that it encrypts the data that is transmitted between the server containing the site and your visitors. This prevents data being sent between your website and your visitors from being read by anyone else.
Absolutely! In Google Chrome, if your site is not protected by an SSL Certificate, your visitors will get a warning message that your site is "Not Secure". Additionally, buying an SSL Certificate for your site is one the easiest and fastest ways you can boost your SEO rankings. That's because part of Google's algorithm is whether your website can be considered trustworthy or not. In short, having an SSL Certificate for your site is the new standard as they provide a secure connection from your site's server to your visitors' browsers.
When your website's audience visits your site, their browser checks for and views your SSL Certificate. Your visitors' computer confirms your site's identity through your SSL's Certificate Authority, the organization that issed the digital certificate.
If everything checks out OK, your visitors' computer and the server your website is hosted on perform a digital "handshake". This is when the computer and your server determine what sort of encryption will be used to create a secure connection. This is known as the Secure Socket Layer, or SSL. The flow of data between the computers is encrypted, meaning it is jumbled up into a code to prevent unauthorized viewing. Your visitors' browser will display some sort of identifer, usually a padlock, indicating to your visitor that a secure connection with your website has been made.
An SSL Certificate allows your site to move from HTTP to the safer Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). The use of HTTPS helps protect your visitors' connections made to your site and avoid what is known as "man-in the-middle" attacks. This type of attack, where sensitive communication/information is intercepted and de-crypted, can be protected against with the use of an SSL Certificate.
You should have one SSL certificate to protect each of your websites. With that being said, if your site has multiple subdomains (i.e domain1.a2hosting.com, domain2.a2hosting.com etc.), you should consider a Wildcard SSL. That's because a single Wildcard SSL Certificate can protect unlimited subdomains.
A2 Hosting also offers multi-domain SSL certificates. This SSL solutions protect multiple domains with a single certificate.
“A2 was fast and efficient at solving our SSL issues. Great customer service!”
“Once again the A2 team came to the rescue. I bought an SSL certificate for one of my sites but forgot to register the token. Needless to say the site was soon deprecated because it did not have an SSL certificate. Not only did A2 give me a refund and buy a new one for me, they also registered the SSL token for me. Both the billing department and...” Read full review
