SSL Certificates

Secure your website, boost search rankings & build trust

Why do I need SSL encryption?

An SSL certificate is the best way to protect information (credit card numbers, login credentials, private information and more) online. When your website displays an HTTPS address and a secure padlock, your customers can shop confidently, knowing their information is 100% safe. A trusted SSL certificate is the ultimate method of dramatically increasing trust and boosting conversions on your website.

If you're serious about doing business online and value your customers' security, then you need an SSL certificate.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do I need an SSL certificate?

    SSL certificates are the best solution for securing websites or web servers that transmit 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 greater weighting in the future.

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

    Yes, absolutely! Our SSL certificates are compatible with all web servers and will work just fine with your existing web hosting company or server setup.

  • How are your prices so cheap?

    As a result of the solid relationships we've forged over the years, and our ability to purchase in bulk, we are able to offer our customers SSL certificates at prices which are considerably cheaper than if you were to purchase the exact same product directly from the certificate authority. In fact, you can expect to save up to 75% on many of our products.

  • What are the requirements for using an SSL?

    All you need is a domain name and website hosting.

    If you host your website with Smartweb, you will not be required to purchase a dedicated IP address. Some web hosting companies might require this. Please make sure to check this beforehand with your host.

    For Organization & Extended Validation SSL Certificates, you will be required to validate the authenticity of your company with the CA.

  • 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. Because of the incredibly high encryption strength of our SSL certificates, the likelihood of this occuring is slim to none.

  • Which SSL do I need?

    Firstly, there are different types of SSL certificates depending on the number of addresses, or subject alternative names (SAN), you need to secure:

    • Standard: 1 domain (i.e. &
    • Wildcard: Unlimited subdomains (i.e. &
    • Multi-Domain: Multiple domains (i.e. &

    Secondly, is the SSL for personal or business use?

    If for personal use, take a look at the affordable Domain Validated options. These do not require you to have a registered business and can be issued in as little as several minutes

    If for business use, it's better to opt for an Organization Validated or Extended Validated (EV) certificate. Both types include your business' name in the certificate details, increasing visible authenticity of your business to potential customers. EV certificates exclusively trigger the famous 'green address bar'. This highly visible mark of trust is the ultimate way to generate consumer confidence and boost conversions.

  • What happens after I order?

    You will be sent an email asking you to complete the SSL's enrollment. You will then be required to complete domain validation. You may choose to validate your domain either by email verification or file-based verification. Email verification requires you to approve an email that will be sent to an email address specified during enrollment. File-based verification requires uploading a provided file to the root directory of your domain.

    Following completion of domain validation, you will either be issued your SSL (domain validation), or be required to submit your business documentation to the certificate authority (organization & extended validation).

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.
