SSL Certificates

What Is SSL?


SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client. typically a web server (website) and a browser; or a mail server and a mail client (e.g., Outlook).


SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept all data being sent between a browser and a web server they can see and use that information.



Notes on the Various SSL certificates


1. Single-Name SSL Certificates provide encryption and authentication for one domain. This SSL Certificate offer has all the features you expect from an SSL Certificate (like strong encryption and browser trust) as well as a few things you won't get anywhere else like unlimited reissues, unlimited duplicate certificates, and an unlimited server license. And because of an innovative use of Subject Alternative Names, this certificate offer secure www.yoursite.com as well yoursite.com. That's why we call it SSL Plus.


2. Extended validation (EV) certificates use the highest level of authentication and were specifically created to boost and maintain customer confidence in ecommerce through a rigorous verification process and specific, EV certificate-only browser cues like the green address bar. EV certificates incorporate some of the highest standards for identity assurance to establish the legitimacy of online entities. The certificate issuing agency puts the applicant websites through rigorous evaluation procedures and meticulous documentation checks to confirm their authenticity and ownership.


3. Extended validation (EV) multi-domain certificates give you the features and flexibility of a Unified Communications (UC)/SAN certificate as well as the additional security and user confidence of extended validation.EV multi-domain certificates use Subject Alternative Names to secure up to 25 domains, sites, and subdomains with one certificate.
Three domains are included in the base price of the EV Multi-domain certificate, but additional names can be purchased.
For example, with an EV multi-domain certificate you can secure

  • www.example.com
  • www.example2.com
  • www.example3.com
  • mail.example.net
  • dev.example2.com

This makes EV multi-domain certificates perfect for Exchange/OCS environments or any environment where you need to secure multiple names across different domains. Certificates with extended validation also use the highest level of authentication and were specifically created to boost and maintain customer confidence in ecommerce through a rigorous verification process and specific, EV certificate-only browser cues like the green address bar.

4. Unified communications(UC) certificates (also called SAN certificates) use Subject Alternative Names to secure up to 25 domains, sites, and sub-domains with one certificate.
Four domains are included in the base price of the UC certificate, but additional names can be purchased.
For example, with a UC certificate you can secure

  • www.example.com
  • www.example2.com
  • www.example3.com
  • mail.example.net
  • dev.example2.com


5. Wldcard certificates use Subject Alternative Names (SANs) to secure a domain and all of its first-level subdomains. For example, a certificate for *.example.com secures www.example.com, mail.iexample.com, etc.A standard SSL Certificate would only secure www.example.com, requiring you to purchase an additional certificate for mail.example.com. And every wildcard certificate comes with an unlimited server license, so you only pay once—whether you have one server or one hundred.
