We offer full installation support and provide guides on how to install your SSL.
By far the best time to buy your certificate is at the time of registering your domain name and certainly before you start to construct and publish your website. Don’t worry if you have already built your site a simple code placed on your server will ensure that visitors will be taken to your new https url. You may not know it but you do not have to have two sites sitting in your root directory one http and the other https, nope just one will do as eventually your site will be re-index as just the secure site.
On purchase there will be a slight delay to you receiving your product which is quite normal because the certificate has to be generated and other information gathered and verified so please don’t worry if nothing happens straight away it is normal!
Q: What is SSL?
A: Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol for enabling data encryption on the Internet and for helping web site users confirm the owner of the web site. SSL is most commonly used to protect communications between web browsers and servers. However, it is increasingly used for server to server communications and for web-based applications.
Q: How is SSL installed?
A: Your SSL certificate is installed using a combination of things you will be given codes (keys) to copy and paste and emails to verify that you are the person who is in control of the site all of which we supply instructions on and if followed correctly will see it up and running in less than an hour.
