Benefits of an SSL/TLS certificate

Protect your data transactions

SSL secures the browser connection between visitors and your website with up to 256-bit encryption. This means all transmitted data is protected from third parties attempting to access it.

Better ranking with Google

Google ranks websites with SSL higher compared to sites without security certification. Professionally validated sites can receive up to 6% higher rankings in search results!

“Not Secure.” Not good.

When visitors type a URL or follow a link to a secure website that doesn’t have an SSL, that site is immediately flagged as “Not Secure.” And that scares potential customers away. But when you have a InslyHost SSL certificate, any potential “Not Secure” warning goes away – for as long as you have the SSL certificate. And that’s a good thing.
 

Anti-phishing

You can protect your site against phishing (attempting to gain sensitive data from usernames) with SSL Business/Premium. Not only will our partner DigiCert check that your company owns and has the right to use the domain, but also that your company is registered and in good standing.

Site Seal

Site Seals are tiny images that let your website visitors know that your page is encrypted and safe. Users are more likely to trust websites with this proven and well-recognized symbol for online security.

Compliance with regulation standards.

An SSL certificate provides the strongest protection for online businesses, including standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR and more.
 

Builds trust with your site visitors

You want your visitors to feel confident that you are protecting the information they submit on your website. DigiCert is a global leader in internet security, meaning you have leading SSL security standards at your fingertips.

Browse the internet safely

Our SSL certificates are compatible with all major browsers and mobile devices so your visitors and customers know their data is protected and encrypted.

Safe mobile and online payment systems.

Give customers the payment options they prefer – and keep them shopping through checkout. To do that safely and securely you’ll need an SSL certificate, the industry standard for end-to-end encryption protocol to thwart hackers from getting to your sensitive data.

Types of SSL/TLS certificates

An SSL certificate creates a secure digital tunnel that blocks hackers and thieves from seeing usernames,
passwords, credit card numbers and other valuable data.

Domain Validated (DV)

If you are just starting out, or want to use the SSL certificate in order to secure your personal website or blog, then usually the domain validated SSL (DV) will suffice.

This way, all traffic is encrypted but no further validation is conducted.

DV Certificates are the right solution for simple websites like blogs, personal websites, and simple one-page websites.

Do not use a DV SSL Certificate for eCommerce or other applications which require a higher level of trust.

Organization Validated (OV)

If you are doing any business online you should at least use an OV SSL. When you’re handling any kind of customer data, organization validation (OV) will make sure that the certificate is really from your organization, and that the domain belongs to you, not a third party.

This helps you to protect your business and customers from phishing websites.

Organization validation is a great way to secure a company website, a forum, or any other website with a login page that does not transfer payment data. Customers’ usernames and passwords will be transferred with end-to-end encryption.

Extended Validation (EV)

If you want to convey the highest level of security and trustworthiness on your website, choose an extended validation certificate.

EV is a must for eCommerce websites as it’s the only kind of SSL certificate that guarantees the real origin of a website and the safety of payment information.

That’s why banks, big eCommerce organizations and government agencies rely on extended validation certificates.

Frequently asked questions about SSL certificates:

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It is a security protocol that conveys your communications over the Internet in an encrypted form. SSL encoding is commonly employed by eCommerce websites to protect sensitive information such as credit card numbers or personal data. SSL certificates ensure that information is delivered to the server for which it was intended, without falling into the hands of third parties who could tamper with the data. You’ll recognize sites that have a SSL certificate by the URL https, rather than the unsecured http. Inslyhost offers QuickSSL certificates for your domain, read on to find out why ordering a SSL certificate is the right choice for you.

Ordering a SSL certificate is a great way to bolster your website’s reputation with customers and search engines alike. Getting SSL validation from Inslyhost is quick and offers complete security for your online transactions – meaning you won’t have to worry about third parties getting a hold of your data. You may find a SSL certificate particularly useful if you run a web shop or eCommerce site, since you can protect your customer’s credit card and other financial information from fraudsters. As a rule, however, any website can benefit from the enhanced security and stellar reputation associated with the SSL protocol.

Moreover, you’ll find that having a SSL certificate is the foundation for building a trusted online brand – recognized by customers and the Google search algorithm as a reputable website. When completing transactions over the Internet, online shoppers trust the https URL over the unsecured http URL. With an SSL certificate from Inslyhost you can inspire the highest level of trust in your customers. That means you can confidently sell products or services in an online shop knowing that each of your transactions is secure.

Since websites with SSL certificates only transmit sensitive information to your domain’s server – in an accurate and unchanged form – you’ll feel as reassured as your customers. SSL certificates can prevent unnecessary security breaches from occurring on your site that could cost you time and money to fix. At Inslyhost, we believe investing in the security of your domain is always a good idea. Luckily, with Inslyhost, securing an effective and cheap SSL certificate for your website is quick and as easy as pie.

A Standard SSL (DV) usually takes 5 minutes or less. A Deluxe SSL (OV) takes 3-5 business days, because 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

This depends on the software you use on your web server. Learn more.

How you build your website is entirely up to you. In fact, most basic secure websites can be hand-coded using HTML.

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.

A Unified Communications Certificate (UCC) is an SSL certificate that secures multiple domain names as well as multiple host names within a domain name. A UCC SSL certificate lets you secure a primary domain name and up to 99 additional Subject Alternative Names (SANs) with a single SSL certificate. 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.

Inslyhost SSL certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL certificate 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.

Depending on how your website is configured, you might want to use something other than a single-domain SSL certificate.

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

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.

InslyHost’s 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 certificates come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait.

For more information, see What are the advantages of a Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate for your business?

Answer these questions to help find the SSL certificate you need:

1. Where are you located? 

Our certificates are issued worldwide with a few exceptions. Check this list to see if you’re covered.

2. Do you have a business or personal website?

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

3. Which type of web hosting server do you use?

Our SSL certificates work on most hosting and server configurations. To protect multiple domains on Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010 or Live® Communications Server, use a Multiple Domain UCC SSL.

4. How many different domains do you need to protect?

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

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

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

You’ll need our OV Deluxe certificate.
