Domain Validation (DV) Certificates are issued after validating that you are the owner of your domain name. This is done by using the currently established and accepted vetting process of email validation using information from the WHOIS database. DV SSL Certificates are for individual users who do not need to meet organizational or business validation requirements.
Once you purchase an Xpress DV SSL, your certificate is issued electronically with no paperwork needed. You can simply move through the validation process using Network Solutions Account Manager.
Once all validation is complete, your SSL Certificate is ready for installation on the website. If the site is hosted with Network Solutions, much of this process is automated. If the website is not hosted with Network Solutions, please contact the hosting provider to install your 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. Xpress Domain Validation is an SSL Certificate that offers quick Domain Validation to provide the basic security coverage that every website should have, including https in the browser address bar, a closed padlock for the browser, encryption, and a guarantee. Business level validations are the Organizational Validation and Extended Validation and are included in products such as the Basic, Advanced, Wildcard, and Extended SSL Certificates. The type of validation needed depends on your budget, organizational size and number of subdomains.
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.
Security vulnerability is a liability. A monetary guarantee assures your customers that their transactions are protected on your website. Xpress comes with a $10,000 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 $10,000.
