What is an SSL Certificate?
Los certificados SSL permiten el cifrado de datos en Internet y permiten que los datos se transmitan de forma segura desde un servidor web a un navegador. Con SSL, su sitio web puede utilizar el protocolo https y mostrará un candado en los navegadores web de los usuarios finales para indicar que la conexión es segura.
Why do I need an SSL Certificate?
SSL Certificates are an essential part of the internet. They not only encrypt communication between your computer and the server where a website is located, but they also provide verification that a site is what it claims to be.
What are the different types of SSL?
There are 3 different levels of vetting that SSL Certificates are based upon. Domain Validated (DV) , Organization Validated (OV), and Extended Validation (EV). The major difference between the types of certificate relates to the information the Certificate Authority, RapidSSL, GeoTrust and DigiCert, requires and validates in order to issue a certificate. The higher levels of certificate require more information, and often is displayed in the browser bar. EV SSL for example turns the browser bar green and displays the organization name to visitors to generate more trust.
What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate
