Have questions about SSL Certificates? We have your answers below!
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. An SSL Certificate is installed on a web server to authenticate your website's identity. This means that the website is what it claims to be. In other words, it proves your identity to your visitors so they can be sure they are seeing your site, and not a fake or bogus website.
The other key function of an SSL Certificate is that it encrypts the data that is transmitted between the server containing the site and your visitors. This prevents data being sent between your website and your visitors from being read by anyone else.
Absolutely! In Google Chrome, if your site is not protected by an SSL Certificate, your visitors will get a warning message that your site is "Not Secure". Additionally, buying an SSL Certificate for your site is one the easiest and fastest ways you can boost your SEO rankings. That's because part of Google's algorithm is whether your website can be considered trustworthy or not. In short, having an SSL Certificate for your site is the new standard as they provide a secure connection from your site's server to your visitors' browsers.
When your website's audience visits your site, their browser checks for and views your SSL Certificate. Your visitors' computer confirms your site's identity through your SSL's Certificate Authority, the organization that issed the digital certificate.
If everything checks out OK, your visitors' computer and the server your website is hosted on perform a digital "handshake". This is when the computer and your server determine what sort of encryption will be used to create a secure connection. This is known as the Secure Socket Layer, or SSL. The flow of data between the computers is encrypted, meaning it is jumbled up into a code to prevent unauthorized viewing. Your visitors' browser will display some sort of identifer, usually a padlock, indicating to your visitor that a secure connection with your website has been made.
An SSL Certificate allows your site to move from HTTP to the safer Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). The use of HTTPS helps protect your visitors' connections made to your site and avoid what is known as "man-in the-middle" attacks. This type of attack, where sensitive communication/information is intercepted and de-crypted, can be protected against with the use of an SSL Certificate.
You should have one SSL certificate to protect each of your websites. With that being said, if your site has multiple subdomains (i.e domain1.a2hosting.com, domain2.a2hosting.com etc.), you should consider a Wildcard SSL. That's because a single Wildcard SSL Certificate can protect unlimited subdomains.
A2 Hosting also offers multi-domain SSL certificates. This SSL solutions protect multiple domains with a single certificate.
“I recently opened a 1 month subscription for web hosting with A2. A2 performed a migration of my existing website (hosted on GoDaddy) which was flawless. After testing the site on A2, the results were excellent. I was looking for a performance improvement, and the load time on A2 Hosting was significantly faster. Plus, A2 Hosting provides one...” Read full review
“A2 hosting is a great product with great customer service. However I cannot get the SSL working correctly and the HTML editor won't work properly for me.”
“I switched to A2 hosting a couple of months ago from another vendor. My web site is now much faster, and at about 1/3 the cost. Today I had an issue with SSL, and they responded and fixed the issue within 45 minutes, on a Sunday afternoon.”
“I have used MANY hosting services ... Reseller accounts and all and this is the best one so far. Performance is better than the whole BlueHost family of hosting companies for sure. Better pricing and features than GoDaddy. Excellent CHAT help ... OMG! Serious, I get on a chat and they know their stuff and they tirelessly help me out. Awesome.”
“Proactively protecting their servers to ensure my websites are not easily compromised by hackers, and keeping up to date with technology - my previous WebHost failed to upgrade their hardware, leaving me no choice but to research different hosting companies. When I searched and came across A2Hosting, the breakdown of their hosting services and...” Read full review
“Upgrading to A2 Hosting's Turbo Boost worked flawlessly. Since I used Cloud Flare for DNS it was just a matter of changing the IP and the site was back up instantly. Good work A2 Hosting team for a seamless migration.”
“A2 support was super fast and helpful with my issue. I am not super tech savvy, and had no idea how to fix my problem. Turns out my SSL certificate from a previous server company had expired. They set me up with a new certificate and got me back online quickly. Very pleased with their service.”
“I had an issue with the SSL on my site, and it was fixed within a few minutes of the time I opened the ticket. The customer support at A2 is stellar!”
“Took a couple of times to try and communicate to the A2 team that I paid for an SSL renewal but it was never installed. The good news is that I think they took care of it this time. Usually very good service from the A2 team.”
