SSL Certificates FAQs

An SSL certificate allows you to provide an extra layer of security to your website. This is useful if you store sensitive information about your customers on your website.

By having an SSL certificate the data on your site would be encrypted and secure.

We would recommend an SSL certificate if you have an ecommerce store or if you have a membership site where you store information about your members.

When you have an SSL certificate installed on your domain your browser will display a security padlock next to your web address.

In basic terms an SSL Certificate allows you to create a secure connection between your website and the browser of someone visiting your website.

This ensures that an data passed between the browser and the website is encrypted and secure from third parties (i.e. hackers).

The most common use is for websites where secure data is passed across such as card payment details or secure login details.

The main point about an SSL certificate is that it creates trust between you & people browsing your website. An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer) is the most widely deployed security protocol used today. It basically provides a secure channel between 2 machines operating over the internet.

By using an SSL Certificate people browsing your website will be able to see that your website is secure & they are far more likely to trust your website.

Someone visits your website and a request is sent from your browser to the server. The web server presents the visitor with a secure connection using a session key which will encrypt all data and make it secure.

HTTPS stands for (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) which basically is a secure version of your browser which is encrypted using an SSL certificate. If a website has not got an SSL certificate the pages will show as HTTP. If the site does have an SSL pages will show as HTTPS. The s at the end means secure.

If you run an Ecommerce site where you are accepting online payments then you definitely need an SSL Certificate. Of course, maybe you are using a third party payment gateway to process the payments and in that case when your client goes to make the payment they do so on their secure site, not yours.

However, to reassure your clients you should definitely consider an SSL Certificate.

But nowadays online security is an important issue and Google is leading the way. In fact they actually announced that HTTPS was a ranking signal . What this means in layman’s terms is that when their systems evaluate which websites to give a higher ranking in their search results, one of the factors they look at is whether or not they are using an SSL Certificate to offer HTTPS browsing.

Therefore if you are looking to get a better ranking for your website you should consider purchasing an SSL Certificate.

There are two main types of SSL Certificate which are described below:

Extended Validation SSL

This type of SSL has the green browser bar and padlock and it shows the company’s legal name in the browser’s address bar. When you order an Extended Validation SSL Certificate the organization purchasing it needs to provide documentation as proof of the legal status of the company.

Standard SSL

This type of SSL does not have the green browser bar and whilst it shows the green padlock it does not show the company’s legal name in the browser’s address bar. These types of certificate are issued instantly.

If you are hosting with Pickaweb you just need to choose which SSL Certificate you want and we will send you an email asking you to confirm the setup and we will install it for you. You will also need a Dedicated IP address which we can provide for you.
