How to choose the right SSL certificate

When it comes to buying SSL certificates, the myriad of different types of SSLs and jargon can be overwhelming. Here's the breakdown to understand how they work so you can choose the best SSL for your needs the first time:

What type of SSL do I need?

This is how certificate authorities verify the legitimacy of website owners.
Domain validation (DV)
DV only requires proof you're the owner of the domain. This process is automated so these can be issued in minutes, but this means they're the least secure and trustworthy. DV SSL prices are usually low, suitable for personal blogs and portfolios.
Organisation validation (OV)
OV requires proof of domain ownership as well as your organisation’s name and location. This garners more trust, essential for sites that process client and payment data. OV SSLs take a bit more time and costs a bit more.
Extended validation (EV)
EV requires proof that your company is legally registered in a particular country, state, or city. The validation can take days, but you earn the ultimate display of trust, the company name shown proudly in green in the address bar. An example would be our Sectigo SSL EV Certificate.

Different types of SSLs cover different numbers of domains.
Single domain SSL certificates
Single domain certificates are the most common. They secure one Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) or an individual subdomain, hostname, IP address, or mail server. An example of this would be our PositiveSSL or Sectigo SSL certificate.
Wildcard SSL certificates
Wildcard certificates are a step up from the former, offering protection for a single domain and all its subdomains. Examples from our offerings would be PositiveSSL Wildcard or Sectigo SSL Wildcard Certificate.
Multi-domain SSL certificates
Multi-domain certificates pack the most punch. This bad boy provides protection for several different domains and all their subdomains, up to 250 depending on the authority issuing the certificate.

Why do I need an SSL certificate?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It creates an encrypted and secure connection between your server and web visitors. With an SSL certificate all private data such as passwords & payment details are protected.

Gain Clients' Trust

SSL certificates are a sure-fire way of gaining your customers’ trust. People don’t like playing it fast and loose with their data, and neither should you. They’ll only offer you their personal and payment details if you promise to protect them. An SSL encryption with us helps you keep that promise.

Improve SEO and Sales

Sites that don't have security certificates can kiss search rankings goodbye. Search engines publicly shame them as “Not Secure” and simply don't rank them in search results. With an SSL certificate your website will rank higher and gain more visibility and visits, which improves lead generation and conversion rates.

Comply with Data Laws

In most countries, SSL certificates are legally required for websites that collect client data and process online payments. Naturally, the benefits of SSL certificates include being in compliance with PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR, and avoiding hefty fines.

Encrypt your Data

Your website traffic can get intercepted or tampered with, at any time. And it won’t even take much effort. However, if you use SSL certificates for websites, malicious actors won’t be able to make sense of your data, even if they somehow manage to catch it.

which ssl certificate cover

Which type of SSL certificate do I need?

With so many SSL choices, it's hard to decide what we need. Let's take a look at the types and which may be better suited to your needs.

Frequently asked questions

If you still have unanswered questions, please reach out to us and we’ll be happy to assist.

An SSL certificate is a security protocol that encrypts all data between a web server and web browser. That means nobody can steal your clients’ data while it is in transit from one location to another. If they somehow manage to do so, it won’t make sense at all.

If you want to keep your user’s data secure and show that your website can be trusted, you absolutely need an SSL. It also helps verify your website and prevents attackers from cloning it. The point of an SSL is to ensure private data remains private. These include card information, login details, personal information, and legal documents.

Simply scroll up to one of our offerings, choose the best SSL certificate for you and click ORDER. We’ll get your details with a couple of prompts and get to issuing it from there.

Ask if it wants another cup of tea. Jokes aside, your SSL should usually be set to automatically renew. If it isn’t simply:

  1. Log in to your WHMCS and head to Website and Security.
  2. From there, click Manage SSL certificates.
  3. Once you enter that webpage, you’ll see a list of the SSL certificates you currently own, along with their renewal date. Click to have it renewed automatically.

How long you wait depends on the type of certificate you get. Different certification types require different levels of validation. For example, for domain validation, which is the lowest level of validation, often only takes a few minutes to obtain.

On the other hand, organisation validation requires you to verify that you own an organisation in some country, state, or city. These certificates can take a few days to be issued.

  1. Once you have your SSL certificate, download and extract the SSL certificate details then head to your cPanel.
  2. Navigate to the Security section and select SSL/TLS.
  3. From there, click on Manage SSL sites and copy the certificate code into the Certificate (CRT) block.
  4. Click Autofill by certificate if it hasn’t generated the content spontaneously.
  5. Click Install Certificate, and Bob’s your uncle.

  1. Start by downloading your Intermediate Certificate. You'll reveive your Primary Certificate via email.
  2. Once you have it, log into cPanel and open the SSL Manager menu SSL/TLS.
  3. Click on the Generate, view, upload, or delete SSL certificates link.
  4. Click to upload the certificate you acquired, or if it came as text, paste it in the field that’s available.
  5. Click Install SSL certificate to complete the process.

Single domain, Wildcard, and Multi-domain certificates. Each one offers more protection than the former.

  • Single domain SSL certificates cover an individual domain, subdomain, hostname, IP address, or mail server.
  • Wildcard SSL certificates protect a single domain name and all its subdomains.
  • Multi-domain SSL certificates protect several different domains and all their subdomains, sometimes up to 250.

That depends on the number of websites and subdomains you’re dealing with right now. If you have a single website with one domain a single domain certificate will do the trick. If you have plenty of subdomains under a single flagship domain, a wildcard SSL certificate is the way to go. Finally, if you’re handling plenty of different domains, a multi-domain SSL certificate would cover all those.

  1. Log into your system’s terminal
  2. Once there, enter the following command:

    1. openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout server.key -out server.csr
    2. Just be sure to replace “server” with the domain name you want to secure.
  3. Enter your CSR details as you’re prompted.

Open the freshly minted CSR order in a text editor. It’ll be ready for when you need to pull it up. Just be sure to secure it by saving or creating a backup of it.
