You've probably heard of SSL but weren’t sure you needed it. SSL enables the HTTP Secure (HTTPS) connection of your site. That means it encrypts all data being sent between browsers and servers—and we use the strongest encryption on the market, so you and your visitors stay extra safe.

In July, Google Chrome is making it official: If your site doesn’t have a security certificate, visitors will see this warning. SSL is not only the right thing to do for them, it’s also great for boosting search rankings and getting more traffic to your site.

Saving the internet, one green lock at a time.

If you don’t have the little green lock from a trusted SSL certificate, Google Chrome will tag your site Not Secure. So…Secure your business reputation.

A Not Secure label on your website can devastate your business. Get serious about data security and get the little green lock that shows visitors that you’re secure.

Get the green lock.

A trusted SSL doesn’t just keep your site from being labeled Not Secure. It protects against hackers by encrypting your web traffic and shows visitors they’re safe with the little green lock in their address bar. It even improves your rank on Google.

All certificates include:

  • SHA-2 and 2048-bit encryption – the strongest on the market
  • Protects unlimited servers
  • Unlimited free reissues
  • Unlimited 24/7 security support
  • Boost Google search ranking
  • Up to USD 1 million liability protection
  • Compatible with all major browsers
  • Displays a Security Seal on your site
  • 30-day money back guarantee

What you get:

Gain customer confidence
In addition to the HTTPS and lock icon, Clean websites can display a Trustmark on every page to reassure visitors that your site is safe.

Get a trusted SSL certificate
Trust is the cornerstone of SSL protocol and that means we adhere to strict validation guidelines. We’ve been on the Online Trust Alliance Honor Roll as SSL providers and diligently issue certificates that all browsers can trust.

Safely accept credit cards on your website
If you want to sell to a much larger audience you need to give customers the payment options they prefer — AND an SSL to keep them clicking through to check out.

Better Google ranking
The world's #1 search engine favors HTTPS-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. So an SSL not only protects your customers but helps you find more of them.

Protect sensitive information
SSL Certificates protect your customers' sensitive information by encrypting the data they send to you, then decrypting it once you’ve received it.

World's strongest encryption
Our SSLs use SHA-2 and 2048-bit encryption to protect sensitive data. It’s the strongest encryption on the market today and it is virtually uncrackable.

How it works:

An SSL creates a secure tunnel through which information including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can pass safely.

  1. First, the SSL “handshake”
    When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your site is most secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.
  2. The padlock icon appears
    Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show them they’re safe to share personal details. If you install an EV (Extended Validation) SSL, the browser will activate the green bar and display your company name to prove you're legit.
  3. You're good to go
    All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that's virtually unbreakable by hackers.

Frequently asked questions:

How do I install my SSL Certificate?
When your SSL certificate is issued, we send an email to let you know. What happens next depends on where your site is hosted and the options you chose when you bought the certificate.

What is an SSL Certificate?
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it's really not. SSL Certificates validate your website's identity and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on any exchange between you and your shoppers.

When you have an SSL Certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can't be viewed by cyber crooks. TH Web will install your certificate and secure your server

What are the benefits of having an SSL Certificate on my website?
SSL Certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL Cert protects your customers' sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server. SSL is the standard for web security, and a Server Certificate is required by most merchant account services – you'll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.

How will people know my website is safe?
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address. While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate's status and details, seeing for themselves that it's safe to send sensitive information to your website. Websites protected by Premium EV SSL display a green browser bar as well, giving users the green light.

What is the difference between Standard SSL and Premium SSL?
All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a Premium EV SSL Certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization's legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards.

Premium EV SSL Certificate involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number and other business information. The process takes about 30 days, but we've got you covered during that time. EV SSL Certs come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait.

Which SSL do I need?
Answer these questions to help find the SSL you need:

Where are you located?

Our certificates are issued worldwide with a few exceptions.

Do you have a business or personal website?

Unless you sell things on your personal website, a Standard SSL (DV) is fine. This is also true for informational business sites. eCommerce websites should use a single-domain Standard SSL (DV) or Premium SSL (EV).

Which type of web hosting server do you use?

Our SSL certificates work on most hosting and server configurations.

How many different domains do you need to protect?

Wildcard SSL cover multiple subdomains. For example, use a Wildcard to protect *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com and any other subdomains.

UCC SSL will cover multiple domains, subdomains, and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com, and www.awesomeexample.com.

Do you need an SSL certificate that supports Intel vPro technology for remote PC management?

You’ll need a Deluxe Certificate (OV).

How long will I have to wait for my SSL certificate?
Standard SSL (DV) usually take 1 day or less. Deluxe SSLs (OV) take 3-5 business days, as we’re validating not just domain ownership but also the existence of the organization or business on the SSL application.

For Premium (EV) certificates, there is an extensive vetting process that starts with an in-depth application. Before you start, pull together details about your business, such as registration number, incorporation or registration agent and any relevant jurisdiction information.

What’s a Unified Communications Certificate (UCC)?
A Unified Communications Certificate (UCC) is an SSL that secures multiple domain names as well as multiple hostnames within a domain name. A UCC SSL lets you secure a primary domain name and up to 99 additional Subject Alternative Names (SANs) with a single SSL. For example, you can use a UCC to protect www.domains1.com, www.domains2.net, and www.domains3.org.

UCCs are compatible with shared hosting and ideal for Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010, and Microsoft Live® Communications Server. However, the site seal and certificate “Issued To” information will only list the primary domain name. Please note that any secondary hosting accounts will be listed in the certificate as well, so if you do not want sites to appear ‘connected' to each other, you should not use this type of certificate.

What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate?
A Wildcard SSL Cert protects your primary domain and an unlimited number of its subdomains. For example, a single Wildcard Certificate can secure both www.coolexample.com and blog.coolexample.com.

Wildcard Certificates secure the common name and all subdomains at the level you specify when you submit your SSL request.

How many separate domains can I protect with HTTPS?
Depending on how your website is configured, you might want to use something other than a single-domain SSL certificate.

Wildcard SSL cover all of a domain name’s subdomains. For example, you can secure *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com, and any other subdomains.

UCC SSL can cover multiple subdomains, unique domain names, and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com, and www.awesomeexample.com.
