What is SSL?

SSL is a protocol used to secure connections from surfers to the website. Using SSL will make everything you visit on that website safe from eavesdropping and tampering. Most websites from banks and governments use SSL to ensure the data sent is secured. SSL can also be used on email.

Why should you get SSL?

You want to make sure that data that you fill in on a website is sent to the correct persons instead of someone who wants to do harm with your data. Using SSL you can make sure this is the case. Securing the connection between client and server is the best option to give users a good feeling about your website which can result in higher sales. Also knowing the fact that your data is secure sends out a professional statement.

How to order a SSL certificate?

To order a SSL certificate, take the following steps:

  1. Make sure you are logged in to your Customer Area before proceeding.
  2. Open the shop page for SSL, and select 'Order' for the package you wish to order. If you are already in the middle of an order, please find the product onder the SSL tab.
  3. You will be asked for the domain name in question. Always supply the domain name without www. In front of it. This will be added automatically.
  4. After confirming your order is correct and complete, complete the payment to have the product and SSL certificate delivered.

The certificate will be installed manually. Should we require additional information (such as with Globalsign certificates), our tech staff will contact you in a ticket, requesting this information.
