SSL Certificates

If you don’t consider yourself ‘technically savvy’, you may be asking ‘What on earth is an SSL certificate?’

SSL certificates are used by millions of websites across the world to obtain a position of trust with their website visitors. In addition to this, merchants and online retailers are able to encrypt any data as it transmits back and forth between their servers and customers ensuring that sensitive data is secured as it travels across the internet.

Jst Hosting offers several types of SSL certificates each offering their own level of trust.

Domain Validated SSL Certificates

Domain Validated Certificates offer several advantages. Firstly, they are low in price which is great for those wishing to protect a small website (such as a small business website or a charity). The setup process for Domain Validated SSL Certificates is completely automated which allows you to have a fully functional SSL certificate within minutes. Whilst these types of certificates offer a low level of assurance to your customers, they still offer the same level of encryption.

Business Validation Certificates

Business Validated Certificates are slightly more expensive compared to Domain Validated Certificates, but they offer a much higher level of assurance to your customers. Extra validation steps are taken to ensure your business or organisation is legitimate. Business Validated Certificates will contain your company name.

Extended Validation Certificates

In addition to ‘Business Validation Certificates’, Jst Hosting offers Extended Validation Certificates which offer a much higher level of assurance to your customers. These certificates are more expensive compared to Domain Validated Certificates, but this is due to the relationship of trust they carry with them. These are recommended for medium and larger businesses which need to ensure compatibility with the wide range of browsers. Extended Validation Certificates will display a green bar in major modern web browsers.

A Dedicated IP Address is required if you are going to use an SSL Certificate with your hosting service. These are charged at £2.50 a month and will be shown as an addon when you purchase an SSL certificate from us.

If you have purchased any SSL certificates elsewhere, you will still be able to use them with on any Jst Hosting hosting service.
