FAQs

  • How do SSL certificates work?

    An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate, also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between your website and a visitor's browser that encrypts all information passed over the connection. SSL encryption helps safeguard personal information like passwords, credit card numbers, and personal credentials.

  • Why does my website have a “non-secure site” warning?

    Browsers have begun alerting users when a website does not have a secure connection and users are quickly learning what to look for—the lock icon and “https” in the browser address bar. Non-secure sites pose dangers to site owners and customers alike. Survey statistics* show 85% of shoppers avoid unsecured websites. Security is now a must-have for all websites—not only eCommerce sites, but also login portals.

    If your website has been marked with a “non-secure site” warning, it is an unsecured site. This problem is solved by purchasing an SSL Certificate.

    *GlobalSign Online Shopper Survey, 2014.

  • What is https and why do I need it?

    The “s” is a visual sign of security. It is the secure version of http (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), the basic instructions that all computers use to render websites. The https in your web address signals to users that your site has an active SSL certificate and is safe and secure for their use.

  • How do I get a lock icon for my website?

    Like https in the browser address bar and a site seal, the padlock icon is another visual cue indicating this website is secure and can be trusted for the interchange of sensitive customer data. These visual markers verify you are exactly who say you are, instilling another layer of confidence to your site visitors.

    All SSL certificates from Network Solutions include the padlock icon.

  • How do I get a Site Seal?

    All SSL Certificates except Xpress include a Site Seal. There are four design options available to choose from. Placing a Site Seal on your website demonstrates your site is secure and visitors can click on it to view your SSL Certificate information, reinforcing trust and confidence.

  • Does my site need data encryption?

    Encryption changes data into a form that can only be read by the intended receiver.

    It used to be that only eCommerce sites or websites that manage the exchange of sensitive, private information regulated by laws such as HIPAA or FERPA used data encryption security. Today, prominent browsers and search engines that want to ensure they refer their customers—searchers—to trusted sites have begun placing alerts and warnings on unsecured http-only websites. With hacking and large-scale data breaches on the rise, it is best practice for any website that interacts with customer data to be protected via an SSL Certificate.

    Network Solutions uses 256-Bit encryption, which 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 security.

  • I don’t have an eCommerce site. Do I still need an SSL Certificate?

    Yes. Any website that interacts with customer data, passwords, login portals, or is under industry regulation for privacy should have an SSL Certificate. Additionally, several browsers have begun alerting users when they land on an unsecured website, warning them to leave at once. If you do not want to risk your site user receiving a “non-secured website” flag, you should get an SSL Certificate.

  • What if I’m not sure which SSL Certificate is best for me?

    We offer five different levels of website security. Decision-making criteria include the size and purpose of your organization, the number of subdomains you use or the amount of guarantee you need. The level of validation your site requires will determine how extensive the validation process is and how much time it takes to complete.

    If you have any questions after viewing the comparison chart above, give us a call! We’re always happy to help you customize the solution that works best for you.

  • What documentation is needed for a business SSL?

    As the Certificate Authority, Network Solutions will authenticate the purchasing company’s identity and credentials using WHOIS database information, Dun & Bradstreet data, articles of incorporation, and other credible sources such as government-issued photo IDs. We offer a comprehensive approach to identity validation so that your SSL Certificate and Site Seal ensure your customers know your business is both legitimate and safe.

  • What documentation is needed for a personal SSL?

    Xpress SSL Certificates use an email-based validation process with information from the WHOIS database. This certificate needs only to validate domain registration and can be issued within minutes.
