If you're doing business online, you need Secure Sockets Layer protection. SSL locks down your site visitors' sensitive data against fraud and identity theft. An SSL certificate provides encryption (scrambling of data to prevent tampering during transmission) and validation (verification of the business behind the website), and the end result is customer trust. When visitors to your website see that you have SSL protection, they know your business is trustworthy and they can purchase with confidence because your site is secure.
Domain-level validation is the most basic type of SSL. These certificates are generally the least expensive, and even the lowest-priced DV cert provides validation in addition to encryption. This is the ideal way to secure your blog or basic personal site.
Organization-validated SSL certificates include authentication of the business or organization behind the domain, to provide a higher level of assurance for your customers. OV certificates are great security for e-commerce sites and other sites that take in customer info.
Top of the line! With EV, the certifying authority conducts an in-depth examination of your business, for the highest degree of user trust. Only EV gives you the familiar "green bar" – ideal for e-commerce sites that collect sensitive customer data such as credit card numbers.
The site seal is a graphic representation of your protection – it's the main reason people buy SSL. It serves as a constant reminder to customers that your site is protected. Most web users know to look for a site seal, so it's important to have one. Seals vary in appearance to reflect the differences between certs, but every SSL certificate we offer comes with a seal.

We handpick our SSL certificates to ensure strong browser ubiquity. This means that the majority of the world's browsers will recognize these certs rather than throwing up a red flag because the company issuing the cert is unknown and its protection cannot be guaranteed. All of our certs are supported by all popular browsers.
Security is determined by the number of bits used to generate the encryption key, which is then used to encrypt the data. Most of our SSL certificates use either 256-bit or 128-bit encryption, depending on the capabilities of computer and server. Both 256- and 128-bit are industry standard for data protection.
