An SSL certificate creates a secure digital tunnel that blocks hackers and thieves from seeing usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and other valuable data. Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and https prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show visitors to your website they’re safe to browse, shop, email you, subscribe to your mailing list, etc.

SSL CERTIFICATES

Stay safe online

When visitors type a URL or follow a link to a secure website that doesn’t have an SSL, that site is immediately flagged as “Not Secure”. But when you have an SSL certificate, any potential “Not Secure” warning goes away – for as long as you have the SSL certificate. And that’s a good thing.

WEBSITE BACKUPS

Never lose a thing

When servers crash and security threats happen, you need a reset button. Website Backup lets you set up automatic backups of your site so you’ve got a secure version whenever you need it. After all, the most effective way to keep your site protected is by being proactive. Avoid being reactive at all costs.

WEBSITE SECURITY

Stop malware pronto

Malware, hacks, unexpected downtime and worse…but the good news is that all of these can be avoided. Website Security runs daily scans for malicious activity, alerts you when something (or someone) is attempting to mess with your stuff and removes the security threats from your site.

Safe online payment systems

Give customers the payment options they prefer – and keep them shopping through checkout. To do that safely and securely you’ll need an SSL certificate, the industry standard for end-to-end encryption protocol to thwart hackers from getting to your sensitive data.

Increased SEO rankings

Search engines heavily favour https-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. That vastly increases the likelihood customers will find you.

Compliance and regulation

An SSL certificate provides the strongest protection for online businesses, including standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR and more.

FAQs

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates authenticate websites and allow them to switch from HTTP to HTTPS encryption, protecting the exchange of valuable information visitors send to or receive from a website.

When you’ve got an SSL certificate protecting your site, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can’t be viewed by any bad actors. GoDaddy makes it easy to install your certificate and protect sensitive customer data on your site.

SSL certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL certificate protects your customers’ sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server. SSL is the standard for web security, and a server certificate is required by most merchant account services – you’ll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.

When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address. While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate’s status and details, seeing for themselves that it’s safe to send sensitive information to your website.

All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a Premium EV SSL certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization’s legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards.

GoDaddy’s Premium EV SSL certificate involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number and other business information. The process takes about 30 days, but we’ve got you covered during that time. EV SSL certificates come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait.
