Protect your business and your users from data theft
by securing traffic with site-wide SSL.
With the recent announcement from Google about SEO ranking boosts for HTTPS everywhere-enabled websites, many companies are looking to secure their entire site with SSL Certificates. Always-On SSL (AOSSL) is considered a best practice by many standards bodies because it encrypts user sessions the entire time they are on your site, not just on certain pages. Many large companies like Twitter, PayPal, Facebook, and Microsoft have already enabled AOSSL on their sites to better protect their users.
Enabling Always-On SSL Is Easy with DigiCert
Enabling Always-On SSL doesn’t have to be difficult. At DigiCert, we understand that most IT administrators don’t deal with SSL Certificates every day. That’s why we try to make it as painless as possible to get your cert and get it up and running. We’ve built an arsenal of powerful tools to automate what we can and have customer support representatives standing by to help you if you run into problems.
Our innovative development team has created tools to help with every step of the certificate management lifecycle, from network analysis & discovery, to procurement, provisioning, monitoring, and even remediation.
Award-Winning Customer Service
We think that support is one of the most crucial parts of our business, so we don't outsource or have phone queues. And our support team will answer questions about any certificate, not just a DigiCert certificate.
DigiCert’s validation teams work around-the-clock to issue certificates. And their work has paid off—not only do we have some of the fastest issuance times out of any CA, we can even issue an EV certificate in a matter of hours!
DigiCert has the highest rating of any Certificate Authority in the world. In fact, we are the only Certificate Authority to have earned a 5-star rating on SSLShopper.com.
What Kind of Certificate Should I Use?
To protect your whole domain with the appropriate level of security, DigiCert recommends that companies with larger sites use a combination of a Wildcard and an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate.
Wildcard certificates use Subject Alternative Names (SANs) to secure a domain and all of its first-level subdomains. Using a Wildcard is a convenient and cost-effective alternative to a single-name SSL Certificate if you want to secure an entire domain with a single certificate.
However, some areas of your site need the enhanced trust and visual cues offered only by an EV certificate. EV certificates give the most important areas of your site the ‘green bar’ and are proven to increase shopping cart rates and enhance user trust.
