How do I activate my SSL certificate?
After purchasing it, you’ll get an email to the administrator email address for your domain to confirm your certificate. Simply click the link to confirm your registration.
Should I get a Standard SSL or an Extended SSL?
Research from Verisign has shown that up to 93% of visitors are put off buying if a website doesn’t have the expected ‘green bar’ (only available with our Extended SSL). If you’re serious about your business, especially if you run an ecommerce store, an Extended SSL is the way to go. If payments aren’t a central part of your business but you still request or private details, such as login information, a Simple SSL with its accompanying padlock is fine.
Do I need web hosting to buy an SSL?
Contrary to popular belief, an SSL certificate is attached to your hosting package rather than your domain name. For this reason, you’ll need to host your website with us even if your domain name is registered elsewhere. You can take a look at our powerful yet affordable hosting packages on our Web Hosting page.
