Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I buy an SSL Certificate?
The global threats to website security increase every day, so Google and other browser vendors have started to make it clear to website visitors when they're not viewing a secure site.
Adding an SSL certificate will encrypt the information you collect on your website, preventing any unscrupulous eavesdroppers from unscrambling it for possible fraudulent gains.
With Google keen to promote a secure web, you could also benefit from improvements in your search rankings, as well as giving visitors to your site more confidence that you take the security of their data seriously.
How long will it take to install my SSL certificate?
This can depend on the type of certificate you buy. Domain Validated (DV) certificates can be issued and installed within a few hours, however, Organisation Validated (OV) certificates will take a few days because your application will be checked against a public record (such as Companies House).
Will you install my certificate?
Yes, we'll install and test the certificate on the server, and ensure your website is updated to run entirely over the new SSL connection.
Why should I buy an SSL certificate from you?
We'll check your order to make sure you've got the right certificate for your needs, and ensure it renews before it expires, so your site will never be left with an invalid certificate.
Can I save money by ordering an SSL Certificate for more than 12 months?
Yes! We can discount subsequent years if you'd like to order a certificate for longer than 12 months. Please contact us for more details.
Will my SSL certificate be transferable to a different server?
Yes. If you should decide to host your site elsewhere, or we recommend moving your site to a new server, we can transfer the SSL certificate with it.
Who provides the warranty for the certificate?
The financial warranty is provided by the certificate issuer, and applies should there be a data breach as a result of a failure in the certificates encryption.
