The term 'SSL' refers to two encryption protocols (SSL and TLS) used to secure communications on the world wide web. Web addresses specifying secure communication are easily identified as they begin with 'https' (Secure HTTP), rather than the unencrypted 'http'. When a secure connection is established with a website, it is indicated by a green status indicator (or a lock symbol) in the web browser's address bar.
A digital security certificate (or 'SSL certificate') is used to verify the identity of a website, and is a requirement for establishing secure communication over HTTPS.

Google's Search Engine use SSL Certificates as a positive ranking signal.
Traditionally, users looked for secure web communications with banks and e-commerce sites, when entering credit card details or personal information. However, several initiatives led by industry and advocacy groups have encouraged the use of 'HTTPS everywhere' in recent years.
As the web has become more social, almost all web communication now involves the use of 'personally identifiable information' (PII) in some way – even when we're not actually sharing financial information.
Any piece of compromised information, however small, can be used in 'social engineering' attacks to contribute to personation or fraud.
As a result, HTTPS is fast becoming the norm for all web communication, and digital certificates are now an essential requirement. Websites without SSL are increasingly at a disadvantage. Google already ranks such sites lower in search results, and they will soon begin flagging them in red, meaning 'not secure', in the Chrome web browser.
All our certificates support both SSL & TLS protocols.

* Multiple subdomains on a Single Domain Name.
** An example of 2 hosts would be example.com and www.example.com.
*** An "Instant SSL" requires a valid D-U-N-S Number
For the purposes of an SSL certificate: password.example.com, orion.example.com and virtual.example.com would be considered separate domains and would require a multi-domain SSL cert. They would only be covered by a single domain SSL cert if they were subfolders of example.com eg. example.com/password, example.com/orion and example.com/virtual. Multidomain SSL certs are priced at €149.99, covering three domains. You can add extra domains for €49.99 each.
