An SSL certificate not only signals trust and authority to your website visitors, it also helps protect them when browsing your website.

It prevents data interception and shows your business has been validated, ensuring complete peace of mind for your visitors.

Search engines such as Google have openly stated that they view an SSL certificate as a mark of trust and that having one can directly improve your search engine rankings.

Furthermore, research has shown that a valid SSL certificate reduces abandoned baskets, increases sales, and makes people more confident about shopping with you. It’s a must-have when you’re selling online.


Frequently asked questions

How do I activate my SSL certificate?

After purchasing it, you’ll get an email to the administrator email address for your domain to confirm your certificate. Simply click the link to confirm your registration.

Should I get a Standard SSL or an Extended SSL?

If you’re serious about your business, especially if you run an ecommerce store, an Extended SSL is the way to go. If payments aren’t a central part of your business but you still request or private details, such as login information, a Simple SSL with its accompanying padlock is fine.
