Frequently Asked Questions

What is Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)?

The Secure Sockets Layer protects data transferred over http using encryption enabled by a server's SSL Certificate. An SSL Certificate contains a public key and a private key. A public key is used to encrypt information and a private key is used to decipher it. When a browser points to a secured domain, an SSL handshake authenticates the server and the client and establishes an encryption method and a unique session key. They can begin a secure session that protects message privacy and message integrity.

How long does it take to issue my SSL Certificate?

RapidSSL and GeoTrust® QuickSSL Premium SSL Certificates are issued within minutes, once you have signed up and completed payment you will receive an email to approve the issuance of the certificate. VeriSign® certificates require some business authentication information and certificate issuance normally takes 2-3 business days.

Do I need a dedicated IP Address?

Yes, an SSL certificate can only be installed if the domain has it's own IP address (dedicated IP) so please add the option when purchasing if you are a HostTop hosting client, if your hosting is with another company then you will need to ask them how to get a dedicated IP
