What is an SSL Certificate?

SSL is the best way to protect private information - credit card numbers, passwords and more - entered into your website. When your website proudly displays an SSL site seal and the trusted padlock, your customers will shop with confidence, knowing their information is safe. SSL (HTTPS) now also has the added bonus of helping to boost your Google search rankings. If you're serious about doing business online, then you need SSL.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a SSL certificate?

    For any online business, security and trust are of the utmost importance. The best way to secure your customer data and earn their trust is by installing an SSL Certificate on your website. By adding a digital certificate to your website, your identity will be authenticated and a layer of bullet-proof encryption will be added to any data that is transmitted. Your customers can safely transact with you knowing that any information they send you, whether it be of a personal or financial nature, is 100% secured and at all times safe from cyber crooks.

  • Do I need an SSL certificate?

    SSL certificates are the best solution for securing websites or web servers that transmit sensitive information, whether it be credit card details or personal details. Without an SSL certificate you risk having this valuable information intercepted and stolen. When customers can see that your website has been well secured and you value their security, they're more likely to do business with you.

    Recently, Google also announced that all websites using site-wide SSL will receive preference in search rankings. Something which will be given even more preference in the future.

  • Can I use your SSL certificates with my own web host?

    Yes, absolutely! Our SSL certificates will work with your existing web host or server setup.

  • What are the requirements for using an SSL certificate?

    All you need is a domain name and website hosting.

    You will also require a dedicated IP address, if your web host or server does not support SNI.

    For Organization & Extended Validation SSL Certificates, you will be required to submit your business registration documents.

  • How does the warranty work?

    The SSL warranty covers any losses your customers may incur as a direct result of the SSL encryption failing and their data being lost/stolen.

Please note: SSL certificates must be installed on your web server. Therefore, we are able to provide end-to-end SSL installation support only in cases where the domain is hosted with Smartweb. If the domain is hosted with another provider, please contact their support team for assistance with CSR generation and SSL installation.
