What is an SSL certificate?

SSL certificates encrypt data transfer between your web site and the end user over "https". This is essential for protecting sensitive data such as customer information and is a requirement for any ecommerce web site.

Which certificate should I choose?

For the most part SSL certificates are the same product, the differentiation is in the branding. If you want to display a "secure" badge we recommend True Business ID as the best option, however if you just want a cheap SSL certificate Rapid SSL is just as secure.


Rapid SSL certs provide the lowest cost SSL certificate available. With high browser recognition and 256-bit encryption this certificate is perfect for low volume ecommerce web sites, individuals and private websites. Comes with a $10,000 USD warranty from Geotrust to ensure absolute peace-of-mind.


GeoTrust's QuickSSL Premium certificates deliver domain control authentication and standard SSL encryption protection. Certificates are ordered via a fast online process and are typically delivered within two hours. Quick SSL Premium customers also receive the dynamic "Secured By GeoTrust" seal that displays a real-time date/timestamp for authentication.

True Business ID with EV

GeoTrust True BusinessID with EV SSL certificates deliver strong authentication and are the only certificates to provide Extended Validation. EV provides greater assurance of the business' identity, and an organisations undergo more stringent indentity checks to receive an EV certificate. Every True BusinessID customer also receives the dynamic "Verified By GeoTrust" seal that displays the customer's company name and a real-time date/timestamp for authentication.

The optional SAN Version of TrueBizID with EV allows multiple domains or subdomains and comes with up to four additional domains/subdomains. Further domains or subdomains can be added at $99 each.
