Secure Your Domain and Subdomains Instantly, No Paperwork Needed, Issued in Just 5 Minutes

What is Domain Validation?

Domain Validated SSL Certificates are designed for those who prefer a straightforward and hassle-free security solution. If you run a small or medium-sized business and require a quick and convenient way to secure your website, then this type of certificate is an ideal choice. It is particularly suitable for websites that do not handle large volumes of data, as it bypasses the more rigorous verification processes associated with other types of SSL Certificates.

With Domain Validation, you only need to demonstrate ownership and control of the domain you wish to secure, and you're good to go. This streamlined validation process eliminates the need for extensive business background checks or personal verification. It's a simple and efficient way to establish encryption and protect your website without unnecessary complexities.

In summary, Domain Validated SSL Certificates offer a convenient security solution for those who prioritize simplicity and efficiency. By verifying domain ownership alone, you can quickly secure your website and enjoy the benefits of encrypted communication.

Frequently Asked Questions

    SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details. When installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites. SSL Certificates bind together: # A domain name, server name or hostname. # An organizational identity (i.e. company name) and location. # An organization needs to install the SSL Certificate onto its web server to initiate a secure session with browsers. Once a secure connection is established, all web traffic between the web server and the web browser will be secure. When a certificate is successfully installed on your server, the application protocol (also known as HTTP) will change to HTTPs, where the ‘S’ stands for ‘secure’.

    SSL Certificates use something called public key cryptography. This particular kind of cryptography harnesses the power of two keys which are long strings of randomly generated numbers. One is called a private key and one is called a public key. A public key is known to your server and available in the public domain. It can be used to encrypt any message. If Alice is sending a message to Bob she will lock it with Bob’s public key but the only way it can be decrypted is to unlock it with Bob’s private key. Bob is the only one who has his private key so Bob is the only one who can use this to unlock Alice’s message. If a hacker intercepts the message before Bob unlocks it, all they will get is a cryptographic code that they cannot break, even with the power of a computer. If we look at this in terms of a website, the communication is happening between a website and a server. Your website and server are Alice and Bob.
