SSL Certificates

SSL Certificates Introduction

The main function of SSL Certificates is to encrypt data transferred between browsers and a website. All websites that collect personal data, operate online store, e-commerce and online payment should use a SSL certificate to protect the users. SSL Certificate also allows a user to verify the identity of the website operator, giving confidence to the user. Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate provides the highest trust level.

Validation Methods

Before the Certificate Authority (CA) issues a certificate, it would perform certain checks on the identity of the organization. The validation methods are Domain Validation, Organization Validation and Extended Validation (EV).

Domain Validation: Certificate Authority performs basic checks on the domain information.

Organization Validation: Certificate Authority performs basic checks on the domain and organization information.

Extended Validation (EV): Certificate Authority performs extensive investigation of the requesting organization based on international standard. The SSL certificate is only issued if the issuing criteria are fulfilled. EV gives the SSL Certificate the highest trust level. It also provides the Green Address Bar and Dynamic True Site Seal features, allowing a user to recognize that the website is using an EV SSL Certificate.

Application Process

Please use this website to order a SSL Certificate first. Then you would receive a confirmation email. Please follow the instructions on the email to configure the certificate. You will need to provide the Certificate Signing Request (CSR). The Certificate Authority would then contact you and perform checks based on the certificate type. Once the checks are passed, you would receive the SSL Certificate. If you are a client of our web hosting service, we can help you to apply and install SSL certificates for free.
