What is an SSL Certificate ?

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and is a digital encryption protocol that protects user information sent from a browser to a server. These certificates play a vital role in keeping consumer information like credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, email content, and more, safe from hackers. If you plan on using your site for ecommerce purposes, or collecting any data from your visitors, an SSL certificate is an absolute necessity.

* DV = Domain Validation, OV = Organisation Validation, EV = Extended Validation.

* You need to have a dedicated IP address (can be ordered at your web host), and a CSR generated on your web server for your domain name.

* Typically, the verification process for OV and EV certificates take between 2-14 business days. OV certificates don’t require as much vetting as EV certificates, but they also don’t come with the green address bar. A lot of the verification process depends on your response time, and it’s better to have the documents you need prepared for when the Certificate Authority contacts you to make the process move as smoothly as possible.
