Frequently asked questions

  • What is 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 should I purchase?

    There are three types of SSL certificates available depending on the number of addresses, or subject alternative names (SANs), you need to secure:

    • Standard: 1 domain (i.e. www.yourdomain.com or mail.yourdomain.com)
    • Wildcard: Unlimited subdomains (i.e. subdomain1.yourdomain.com & subdomain2.yourdomain.com)
    • Multi-Domain: Multiple domains (i.e. www.yourdomain.com & www.otherdomain.com)

    Secondly, the level of validation:

    For most websites, a domain validation SSL certificate is generally sufficient. They are quick, affordable and offer a high level of security.

    For larger enterprises and e-commerce websites, we recommend an EV certificate. EV certificates exclusively trigger the famous 'green address bar' which contain your business' name. 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 emailed an enrollment form for your certificate to complete. You will then be required to complete domain validation. You may choose to validate your domain either by email, file upload, or by adding DNS records.

    Once you've completed domain validation, you will be issued your SSL certificate. Alternatively, if you purchased an Organization or Extended Validation certificate, you will be required to complete several steps to verify the identity of your business.

Please note: SSL certificates must be installed on your own web server. Therefore, we are only able to provide SSL installation support 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.
