A non-SSL-certified website can be recognized by the absence of the padlock symbol to the left of the Internet address, and so a secure connection to visitors cannot be guaranteed, especially with regard to data transfers such as those entered through Contact Forms, User Authentication, Payments, User Registration. In addition to jeopardizing the credibility of your business, this also penalizes your website’s visibility as Google assigns greater value to SSL-certified websites by privileging them in search results over their competitors.
A green padlock to the left of the Internet address identifies a website which has an active and correctly installed SSL Certificate. In addition to validating the website, this also provides a guarantee of reliable and secure communication between the visitor and the website via encrypted HTTPS protocol. Data transferred through communication forms, whatever it may be (personal data, access credentials, credit cards…), are encrypted and cannot be intercepted by anyone.
When the company name naappears in green between the padlock and the Internet address, it means that website has an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate. This type of certificate is issued following a very thorough company verification process that is requested by the Certification Authority and distinctly confirms that the website has a solid structure. This provides visitors with the maximum guarantee of website identity, company reliability, product reliability and data transmission security and increases brand prestige and value.
After purchasing, access the Register.it Control Panel. You will find your SSL certificate in the "Products to activate" section. Follow the Wizard to obtain the SSL certificate emission.
Once you have inserted the previously created CSR, you will need to select the webserver type where the SSL certificate will be installed and confirm email and administrative contact information. Depending on which certificate is chosen (domain or organization validation), you will be sent a confirmation email or will receive a call on the number you indicated.
Once you have obtained the certificate, you can install it on your server hosting space. Refer to your server documentation or product administration panel for further details on how to enable HTTPS protocol and install the certificate.
By using HTTPS protocol, data can be exchanged securely over the internet via encryption by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
When we visit a website, the data exchanged between our browser and the server that hosts the website may be intercepted by a third party during transmission. To avoid this situation, HTTPS and SSL technology are used which, by way of an SSL certificate issued by a Certification Authority, encrypts transmitted information, making it virtually non-interceptable.
Certification Authorities issue three types of certificates that differ in the way a company is verified. A DV (Domain Validation) certificate is the easiest to obtain, are release times are very short (1 day). This type of certificate validates only the domain name, meaning that it is enough for a company to have, for example, a DNS or domain Emails to receive certification, and the visitor is assured that the exchange of information between the website and browser will be encrypted. This, however, does not certify the domain owner. Instead, the OV (Organization Validation) certificate, where verification of the applicant, ie the domain owner, is conducted, the organization too is validated. During the verification phase, known as "vetting," business data are validated to verify authenticity. Finally, the EV (Extended Validation) certificate holds the highest level of validation. Here the vetting phase is very thorough. Companies holding this certificate are easily recognized as the company name is indicated directly on the navigation bar (ie the green address bar).
An SSL certificate associated with your domain provides more prestige in the eyes of the visitor, and guarantees that data exchanged between your website and the visitor’s are encrypted and not intercepted. If your domain contains user registration forms, forms for sending informative email or electronic payment forms, you will definitely need an SSL certificate to protect the exchange of this sensitive data. In addition, Google’s search engine has stated that it will reward, via ranking level, websites that use a secure HTTPS connection.
Choosing the SSL certificate best suited to your business depends largely on the type of website you want to protect. If your website contains only static pages, registration forms or just sends Email, then the most common choice is DV (Domain Validation) certification, where no checks at an organizational level are conducted and certificate emission is almost immediate. However, if your website contains forms for sending credit card information, such as when selling products online, the most appropriate choice from a security point of view for the buyer is OV (Organization Validation) certification. Since this certification includes validation at an organizational level, the buyer will consider your website as highly secure, increasing their propensity to buy. Finally, Extended Validation (EV) certification is recommended to more structured organizations that want their brand name included on the navigation bar, giving the buyer absolute certainty they are navigating in the official company store. The cost is certainly higher than the other types of SSL certificates, but the return in brand visibility and reliability is definitely greater.
