Some websites or server configurations require a specific type of SSL. Use these questions as a guideline to help determine which SSL you should use.
Our SSL certificates are issued to individuals and companies worldwide, but there are a few restrictions. For more information, see Which countries are currently supported for certificate issuance?
How do you want to show visitors that your Website is secure? Do you want visitors to see the SSL belongs to a verified organization, or is HTTPS in the address enough?
All SSL-secured Websites display HTTPS in the address. Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSLs also display a prominent indicator — usually a green address bar — to quickly assure visitors that the organization's legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards. For more information, see What is a Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate?
Our SSL certificates work on all types of hosting and server configurations, but these specific servers must use the certificate listed:
All domains are listed in a UCC. If you want to secure both fully qualified (example: www.coolexample.com) and partially qualified (example: coolexample.com) domains with a UCC, make sure to select a domain for each one. Know which domains you need to cover when you purchase, because you cannot upgrade.
Do all of the Websites have fully qualified domain names, or do you need to add a few subdomains (see What is a subdomain?) on the fly?
UCC SSLs represent all secondary domains with the primary business name, so all Websites should be related. A UCC Website seal displays only the primary domain name as "Issued To," and all secondary websites are listed in the certificate details.
