Top 3 Tips to Get Started as an Approved DigiCert Partner
1. Installing the DigiCert® Reseller Seal
Adding the Reseller Approved seal to your site is an easy way to let your customers know that you’re authorized to sell DigiCert Certificates, and that you are top of your game when it comes to SSL.
To add the DigiCert Reseller Seal to your website, complete the following steps:
- Log into your DigiCert Management Console
- Click the Reseller Tools
- Click Get Reseller Seal Code
- Place the code in the HTML of the page where you want the site seal to be displayed
2. Include Reseller Links
SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text—leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker intercepts data being sent between a browser and a web server they can see and use that information.
SSL secures millions of peoples’ data on the Internet every day, especially during online transactions or when transmitting confidential information. Internet users have come to associate their online security with the lock icon that comes with an SSL-secured website, or green address bar that comes with an extended validation SSL-secured website. SSL-secured websites also begin with https rather than http.
Here is an example of a paragraph to add to your website:
“SSL Certificates are the backbone of internet security. As we’ve partnered with DigiCert in our offering of SSL Certificates, we feel confident we provide the best products and services, with the best support, at the best price.”
To add your DigiCert Reseller links, do the following:
- Log into your DigiCert Reseller Account
- Click the Reseller Tools
- Click on the Promo/Sales Resources
- Copy the links that you’d like to include
- Use the following method to insert the link into your website:
HTML Link Syntax
The HTML code for a link is simple. It looks like this:
<a href="url">Link text</a>
The href attribute specifies the destination of a link.
<a href="https://www.digicert.com/">Visit DigiCert for SSL Certificates</a>
which will display like this: Visit DigiCert for SSL Certificates.
Clicking on this hyperlink will send the user to DigiCert’s homepage.
Tip: The "Link text" doesn't have to be text. It can be an image or any other HTML element.
3. Spread the Word
Ask your current clients about any existing SSL Certificates they might have. Make the pitch to switch to DigiCert by explaining that they can have their SSL done right and made easy.
As a partner we aim to keep the SSL process easy and hassle-free.
