6 reasons to choose our SSL certificates

Stronger brand identity.

Our premium certificates help increase user confidence by showing you’ve secured your true identity online after being validated by an industry-recognized Certificate Authority. So, your SSL certificate indicates to customers that your organization is committed to protecting their data and online experience.

Compliance with regulation standards.

An SSL certificate provides the strongest protection for online businesses, including standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR and more.

“Not Secure.” Not good.

When visitors type a URL or follow a link to a secure website that doesn’t have an SSL, that site is immediately flagged as “Not Secure.” And that scares potential customers away. But when you have a GoDaddy SSL certificate, any potential “Not Secure” warning goes away – for as long as you have the SSL certificate. And that’s a good thing.

Customers will trust you.

And that’s important because trust is the cornerstone of SSL protocol – indicative of strict validation guidelines. Our SSL certificates feature the world’s best encryption to protect sensitive data.

Increased SEO ranking.

Search engines heavily favor https-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. That vastly increases the likelihood customers will find you.

Safe mobile and online payment systems.

Give customers the payment options they prefer – and keep them shopping through checkout. To do that safely and securely you’ll need an SSL certificate, the industry standard for end-to-end encryption protocol to thwart hackers from getting to your sensitive data.

Frequently Asked Questions

When your SSL certificate is issued, we send an email to let you know. What happens next depends on where your site is hosted and the options you chose when you bought the certificate.

If you chose web hosting, Website Builder or Online Store will take care of everything for you. If you host your website with another company or use our VPS or Dedicated Servers, learn more here.

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it’s really not. SSL certificates validate your website’s identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on exchanges between you and your shoppers.

When you have an SSL certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can’t be viewed by cyber crooks. GoDaddy makes it easy to install your certificate and secure your server.

GoDaddy SSL certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL certificate protects your customers’ sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server. SSL is the standard for web security, and a server certificate is required by most merchant account services – you’ll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.

How you build your website is entirely up to you. In fact, most basic secure websites can be hand-coded using HTML.

When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address. While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate’s status and details, seeing for themselves that it’s safe to send sensitive information to your website.

All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a Premium EV SSL certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization’s legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards.

GoDaddy’s Premium EV SSL certificate involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number and other business information. The process takes about 30 days, but we’ve got you covered during that time. EV SSL certificates come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait.

A Standard SSL (DV) usually takes 5 minutes or less. A Deluxe SSL (OV) takes 3-5 business days, because we’re validating not just domain ownership but also the existence of the organization or business on the SSL application.

For Premium (EV) certificates, there is an extensive vetting process that starts with an in-depth application. Before you start, pull together details about your business, such as registration number, incorporation or registration agent and any relevant jurisdiction information.

A Unified Communications Certificate (UCC) is an SSL certificate that secures multiple domain names as well as multiple host names within a domain name. A UCC SSL certificate lets you secure a primary domain name and up to 99 additional Subject Alternative Names (SANs) with a single SSL certificate. For example you can use a UCC to protect www.domains1.com, www.domains2.net and www.domains3.org.

UCCs are compatible with shared hosting and ideal for Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010, and Microsoft Live® Communications Server. However, the site seal and certificate “Issued To” information will only list the primary domain name. Please note that any secondary hosting accounts will be listed in the certificate as well, so if you do not want sites to appear ‘connected’ to each other, you should not use this type of certificate.

A Wildcard SSL certificate protects your primary domain, and an unlimited number of its subdomains. For example, a single Wildcard certificate can secure both www.coolexample.com and blog.coolexample.com.

Wildcard certificates secure the common name and all subdomains at the level you specify when you submit your SSL request.

Depending on how your website is configured, you might want to use something other than a single-domain SSL certificate.

Wildcard SSL certificates cover all of a domain name’s subdomains. For example, you can secure *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com and any other subdomains.

UCC SSL certificates can cover multiple subdomains, unique domain names and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com and www.awesomeexample.com.
