SSL certificates types of ssl certificates

SSL certificates from simplewebhosting.co.uk are available in a number of different configurations, with differing features depending on the needs of the purchaser deploying the certificate.

Validation types

Domain-validated certificates SSL certificates for domains ensure that the domain has been authenticated by a recognised certificate provider. Visitors to the site can click on the seal to verify that the certificate is still valid, giving site visitors extra peace of mind.

Organisation-validated certificates When corporate identity validation is important, an SSL certificate for the organisation assures customers that the website is trustworthy and secure.

Extended Validation (EV) certificates With Extended Validation, as well as displaying the certificate seal, the address bar is displayed in green, providing customers with an extra level of confidence. The green address bar is a strong visual indication that the site has an Extended Validation Certificate. The Security Status bar displays the organisation name and the name of the Certificate Authority (CA).

Wildcard option

Wildcard certificates A wildcard SSL certificate helps enable SSL encryption on multiple sub-domains using a single certificate as long as the domains are controlled by the same organisation and share the same second-level domain name. For example, a wildcard certificate issued to Company ABC using the Common Name "*.CompanyABC.com" may be used to secure subdomains like login.companyabc.com, payment.companyabc.com and support.companyabc.com.

Code Signing

Code Signing certificates When customers want to download applications online, install plug-ins and add-ins, and interact with sophisticated web-based applications, a code signing certificate is a digital signature that identifies the company responsible for the code and confirms that the code has not been modified since the signature was applied.
