SSL Certificates

What are SSL Certificates?

SSL Certificates encrypt the data on your website, ensuring that the information being entered by your visitors is safe from prying eyes. You may have noticed recently that when you visit certain websites, you see a message telling you that it isn't secure. That website will be lacking a SSL certificate. If you look at the address bar on your browser now, you will see a padlock before our website address. We are protected by a SSL certificate and all our data is safely transmitted.

Do I need a SSL certificate to protect my website?

On the one hand, if your website is for information only, and doesn't require any visitor input, then you can probably go without, but there might be a discouraging message of "not secure" showing on the browser when someone visits your site. If your website contains links to other websites which do not have a security certificate, then that can invalidate your certificate anyway. Google also changed its algorithms (as it often does) to penalise websites that are not protected by SSL, therefore you are likely to slip down the search rankings without one.


How long do they last?

SSL Certificates last for 1 year and need to be renewed annually. We offer 3 kinds of Certificate with varying levels of security. The price includes integrating the certificate into your website to ensure visitors are automatically issued with protected pages, rather than your original unprotected ones. If you choose not to renew a certificate, this may affect the operation of your site. As such, this option is set to automatically renew unless you ask us to cancel to subscription.


Will I be instantly covered?

Please be aware that Simple and Standard SSL certificates may take up to 3 days to be activated once you have placed your order. Extended certificates may take up to 12 days due to the extra security measures provided.


Do they work on any website?

Yes, but please only order below if we are hosting your website. We do not provide certificates for websites hosted by other companies.
