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.
Domain-level validation is the most basic type of SSL. These certificates provide basic encryption, are issued very quickly and involve a simple check to verify domain ownership. Domain-validated certificates are generally the least expensive.
Organization-validated SSL certificates include authentication of the business or organization behind the domain. This provides a higher level of security and lets customers know they can trust your server with their personal information.
Extended validation is top of the line. With extended validation, the certifying authority conducts a very in-depth examination of your business before issuing the certificate. This type of SSL provides the highest degree of security and user trust.
Single-domain SSL certificates provide security for a single fully qualified domain name.
Wildcard SSL certificates provide security for all the same-level subdomains of a domain.
A multi-domain SSL certificate provides secured communications for multiple domains and multiple host names operating on different IP addresses.
