The SSL certificate, now a mainstream online feature

First created in 1994, the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate was initially only used on e-commerce and banking websites. Today, obtaining an SSL certificate is extremely simple. For this and other reasons, SSL certificates are used by the vast majority of the websites you visit on a daily basis. You may identify the presence of an SSL certificate on a website at a glance, simply by looking next to the address bar in your web browser. If you see the “https” prefix instead of the older “http”, as well as a lock icon, you know the page you’re currently visiting is protected by a valid SSL certificate.

Operation and types of SSL certificates

Why do I need an SSL certificate for my website?

Having an SSL certificate ensures that any data sent from a user to your server, and vice versa, is properly secured thanks to the use of public-key cryptography. With an SSL certificated in place, any piece of information you send online is protected from any entity attempting to steal it or edit it.

Furthermore, an SSL certificate should be used on all types of websites, including personal homepages, as it is such an essential part of the modern internet. Your website will appear to be more trustworthy to your visitors, putting you a level above the others.

What are the different SSL certificate types?

SSL certificates exist under three main types designed for different use cases. Our solutions are designed to adapt to your needs and your degree of expertise.

Standard SSL Certificate

The Standard SSL Certificate is our simplest option. You may create it for free if you subscribe to one of Gandi’s Simple Hosting offers. This certificate can be generated using our intuitive interface and will be renewed automatically by our system before its expiration date. With Gandi, you will be able to enjoy increased safety and a higher level of trust from your users without putting in any extra work. Thus, the Standard SSL Certificate is the ideal product for individuals who want to develop their online presence, whether they’re just getting started or are seasoned web developers

Professional SSL Certificate

The Professional HTTPS Certificate is only available for business accounts and other similar legal entities. One advantage of the Standard SSL Certificate is that it comes with a financial warranty of up to $250,000 that will be paid in the event the certificate fails to provide you with the security it guarantees. The Professional SSL Certificate is the ideal option for any business or corporation wanting to protect its users’ confidential data. As an option, you can also protect a domain name and all its subdomains.

The “Business” SSL Certificate is also exclusively offered to businesses and corporations. This certificate is securely validated by Sectigo. The Business SSL Certificate offers you the same level of financial protection as the Professional SSL Certificate, as well as other options such as the ability to protect more than a single domain name. This SSL certificate is perfect for large businesses who are making use of many servers and domain names.

  • Professional SSL certificate : secures one or several websites with a warantee regarding financial transactions. Professional certificate offers a higher level of validation. It validates the organization itself, and therefore can only be purchased by companies that can prove their true legal existence. Thus, this type of certificate is only available for businesses or other legal entities.
  • Business SSL certificate (EV) : secures one or several websites with a higher warantee regarding financial transactions. It offers the highest degree of security as it requires the most extensive verification of your identity. This type of certificate is only available for businesses or other legal entities.

You can add options on this types of certificate to protect more than one address :

  • Wildcard - Available for Standard / Pro certificates : The Wildcard option not only does everything a single-address SSL certificate does, it also protects every subdomain for any given domain. It is easier to manage if you have many subdomains to secure, and can reveal to be quite cost effective.
