What is a Standard SSL Certificate?
A single-domain SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate:
- Establishes a secure connection between a browser and a server
- Encrypts communication—reassuring visitors their sensitive information, such as credit card information, is safe
- Authenticates an organization’s identity
- Places a padlock next to your web address in the browser

They told me I could expect to wait 5 business days for that to complete.
I called for help, and their phone system told me their voicemail was full and hung up on me.
I chatted with them for support. After 30 minutes with many length waits for responses, their chat tool disconnected me. It reconnected me to a new agent to start me over.
