What is SSL?

SSL is the backbone of our secure Internet and it protects your sensitive information as it travels across the world’s computer networks.

SSL is essential for protecting your website, even if it doesn’t handle sensitive information like credit cards. It provides privacy, critical security and data integrity for both your websites and your users’ personal information.

Trustwave® is a globally trusted brand for Internet security and compliance – offering secure certificates, including SSL certificate products such as Organization SSL certificates for up to 5 domains and their www equivalents, Wildcard SSL certificates for multiple sub-domains and the strongest in online identity including the green address bar with extended validation, EV SSL certificates.

Which certificate does what?

These certificates go through the most basic level of owner verification known as Domain Validation where you need to either set up a specific email address to receive a confirmation on, create a DNS record or display certain information on your domain contact information.

Much like the Premium SSL these go through a DV process followed by phone verification where you will be asked for information about your business and asked to provide any supporting documentation via email to Trustwave. These types of SSL Certificate cover ONE domain with a wildcard (Ie: *.mydomain.com).

After completing a Domain Validation you will be contacted by Trustwave on your provided phone number when configuring the Certificate. They will go over some details they need for the validation process and request any supporting documentation they need to complete this to be submitted via email.

 This type of validation is by no means quick or easy, It will follow through a Domain Validation following by a much more detailed Organization Validation that will include further documents to be provided. The reward however is that extra green bar that appears on your visitors browsers re-assuring them they are securely dealing with the correct business for the site they have visited.
