Frequently asked questions about SSL certificates:
What is an SSL certificate?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates authenticate websites and allow them to switch from HTTP to HTTPS encryption, protecting the exchange of valuable information visitors send to or receive from a website. When you’ve got an SSL certificate protecting your site, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can’t be viewed by any bad actors. GoDaddy makes it easy to install your certificate and protect sensitive customer data on your site. For even more information on SSL certificates, check out
What are the benefits of having an SSL certificate on my website?
SSL certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL certificate protects your customers' sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server. SSL is the standard for web security, and a server certificate is required by most merchant account services – you'll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.
How long will I have to wait for my SSL certificate?
A Standard SSL (DV) usually takes 5 minutes or less. A Deluxe SSL (OV) takes 3-5 business days, because we’re validating not just domain ownership but also the existence of the organization or business on the SSL application. For Premium (EV) certificates, there is an extensive vetting process that starts with an in-depth application. Before you start, pull together details about your business, such as registration number, incorporation or registration agent and any relevant jurisdiction information.
How will people know my website is safe?
How you build your website is entirely up to you. In fact, most basic secure websites can be hand-coded using HTML. When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address. While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate's status and details, seeing for themselves that it's safe to send sensitive information to your website.
What is the difference between Standard SSL certificate and Premium SSL certificate?
All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a Premium EV SSL certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization's legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards. Premium EV SSL certificate involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number and other business information. The process takes about 30 days, but we've got you covered during that time. EV SSL certificates come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait. nec ullamcorper tis.
