WehostAfrica SSL Certificate

What is an SSL certificate?

An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates a website's identity and enables an encrypted connection. SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, a security protocol that creates an encrypted link between a web server and a web browser.

Companies and organizations need to add SSL certificates to their websites to secure online transactions and keep customer information private and secure.

In short: SSL keeps internet connections secure and prevents criminals from reading or modifying information transferred between two systems. When you see a padlock icon next to the URL in the address bar, that means SSL protects the website you are visiting.

How to choose an SSL certificate

There are four popular types of SSL server certificate products.

This is regarded as the highest level and most expensive form of security offered to any website. Apart from improving trust and confidence via the strictest authentication process, it triggers a visible Green Bar on modern browsers to distinguish a secured site apart from others. It comes with a clickable banner that will show full information about the past activities and functions to the visitors. SSL certification of this type can be purchased at a minimal price from WehostAfrica.
This is the second highest level of authentication. It has an advantage of thorough vetting but does not dig deep into your company when compared to the extended validation, displays a clickable link that provides information about the business but less information compared to extended validation. If you need company-level authentication for your site, this SSL is a fantastic buy and the prices are lower and affordable.
It is the least expensive SSL certificate as the validation takes minimal work. With domain validation, you get same degree of protection after the purchase of SSL certificates, but you cannot boost your visitor’s confidence to a particular extent. We do not recommend this to be used for commercial purposes but use it instead for internal purposes.
Wildcard SSL certificates does not feature user trust, although a single wildcard SSL certificate can cover several subdomains. Considering the minimal cost of SSL certificates, if you have several subdomains, or you plan to increase in the future. You need to cover everything with one SSL certificate; Wildcard SSL and you are good to go.

Browser Ubiquity

Browser Ubiquity

Web Browser ubiquity is the term used in the industry to describe the estimated percentage of Internet users that will inherently trust an SSL certificate. The lower the browser ubiquity, the less people will trust your certificate. Clearly, if you are operating a commercial site you require as many people as possible to trust your SSL certificate. As a general rule, any SSL certificate with over 99.99% web browser ubiquity is acceptable for a commercial site.

 SSL Encryption

SSL Encryption

SLL uses both asymmetric and symmetric encryption to protect the confidentiality and integrity of data-in-transit. Asymmetric encryption is used to establish a secure session between a client and a server, and symmetric encryption is used to exchange data within the secured session.
