About SSL Certificates


What is SSL?

SSL is a web standard for encrypting communications between users and SSL (secure sockets layer) websites. Data is encyrpted when sent via a SSL connection to make it safer.

Website user understand that they are at a SSL enabled session with a "gold padlock" on the browser & the address starts with "https" rather than "http".

Differences Between SSL Certificates

Almost every SSL certificate functions the same. Every certificate sold in SSLmatic can encyrpt data with 256bit encyrption. Differences lie between several factors:

  • Browser recognition (SSL certificates sold in SSLmatic are recognized by 99% of the browsers).
  • User perception (Users see SSL certificates as a fact of trust and some brands are more recognized by users, like Verisign).
  • Site Seal (A seal that is a proof that the certificate is valid - RapidSSL has a standard site seal, Geotrust & Verisign has personalized site seals).

Purchasing/Renewing Certificates Through SSLmatic (awesome prices)


What Is The Difference Between Buying A Certificate From The Provider Itself And SSLmatic?

In short, nothing but the price.

You get the exactly same SSL enrollment link from SSLmatic and the link again gets you to the "self-service SSL issue system" of the related provider.

In means of support, it is better. You can get support from the provider (RapidSSL, Geotrust, Verisign) and/or SSLmatic. You are customers of both.

Why Are The Prices So Low?

This is due to the nature of commerce. We buy in bulk and sell with very low profit margins hoping/wishing that you'll bookmark us and purchase a new cert again.

No worries, we are here since 2007, sold thousands of certificates and have lots of happy customers.

What Is The Process Of Purchasing A New SSL Certificate?

We remove the complexity of purchasing SSL certificates and provide a very simplified process with only few steps:

  • Choose your certificate
  • Purchase it for the desired duration
  • We automatically issue a unique enrollment link and e-mail it to you.
  • Click this link and it will take you to the self-service issue system of the SSL provider (RapidSSL, Geotrust, Verisign). The system will guide you on every step and ask for several information depending on the certificate choosen
  • Once you provide these information, the SSL provider will e-mail you the certificate

We suggest purchasing multi-year certificates for not dealing with the same process every year.

What Is The Process Of Renewing A SSL Certificate?

The process and pricing is just the same as purchasing a new certificate.

It is a good idea to purchase multi-year certificates for not dealing with the same process every year and getting even better prices.
