FAQs

  • What is an Extended Validation SSL Certificate?

    The encryption provided by SSL Certificates helps to prevent hackers from stealing private and confidential information sent via the Internet. A website secured with an SSL Certificate provides a safe place for customers to enter sensitive data such as credit card information, bank account numbers, etc.

    There are levels and varieties of SSL certificates to secure your website. Extended Domain Validation SSL Certificates offer security coverage every organization should have: https, a closed padlock for the browser, encryption, and a guarantee. There are also Organizational Validation and Domain Validation SSL Certificates. Selection depends on your budget, organizational size, number of subdomains, and security risk.

  • What is 256-bit Encryption?

    Because computers and servers are networked and maintain an ongoing connection with the web, protecting private data and information while it’s stored or sent online requires an extra measure of security. Encryption changes data into a form that can only be read by the intended receiver.

    256-Bit Encryption refers to the size of the decryption key used to unscramble encrypted data. 256-Bit encryption is considered computationally infeasible to crack and is known as a very strong SSL certificate.

  • Why is there a monetary guarantee for Extended Validation SSL Certificates?

    Security vulnerability is a liability. A monetary guarantee assures your customers that their transactions are protected on your website. Extended Validation comes with a $1 million guarantee—so should they incur losses resulting directly from an online credit card transaction while visiting your website and the loss is a result of a misissued certificate, your customer will receive reimbursement up to $1 million.
