In addition to the HTTPS and lock icon, Comodo's Secure Seal is an ever-present reminder to customers that their transactions are safe and secure.
The world's #1 search engine favors HTTPS-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. So an SSL not only protects your customers but helps you find more of them.
Our SSLs use SHA-2 and 2048-bit encryption to protect sensitive data. It's the strongest encryption on the market today and it is virtually uncrackable.
This means that the majority of the world's browsers will recognize these certs rather than throwing up a red flag because the company issuing the cert is unknown and its protection cannot be guaranteed.
If you want to sell to a much larger audience you need to give customers the payment options they prefer - AND an SSL to keep them clicking through to checkout.
We're known for providing the industry's finest customer service. That's due to our stellar support team. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable, our support staffers are some of the most polite, helpful people in the business. And they're available 24/7 to answer your questions and offer advice.
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your site is most secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.
Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and HTTPS prefix appear in the visitor's browser bar to show them they're safe to share personal details. If you install an EV (Extended Validation) SSL, the browser will activate the green bar and display your company name to prove you're legit.
All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that's virtually unbreakable by hackers.

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it's really not. SSL Certificates validate your website's identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on any exchange between you and your shoppers.
When you have an SSL Certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can't be viewed by cyber crooks. Parallax Hosting makes it easy to install your certificate and secure your server.

Comodo SSL Certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL Cert protects your customers' sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server. SSL is the standard for web security, and a Server Certificate is required by most merchant account services - you'll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.

How you build your website is entirely up to you. In fact, most basic secure websites can be hand-coded using HTML.
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address. While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate's status and details, seeing for themselves that it's safe to send sensitive information to your website. Websites protected by Comodo EV SSL display a green browser bar as well, giving users the green light.
For more information, see Verifying a Certificate's Validity on Your Computer.
All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a EV SSL Certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization's legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards.
Comodo EV SSL Certificate involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number and other business information. The process takes about 10 business days.
For more information, see What are the advantages of a Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate for your business?
For one thing, our SSL certs cover unlimited secure servers. They support up to 2048-bit encryption and they're recognized by all of the major desktop and mobile browsers on the market. Plus, they're backed by the industry's best 24/7 service and support. There's absolutely no technical difference between Comodo SSL Certificates and those offered by other companies - they simply cost less.

Answer these questions to help find the SSL you need:
Standard SSLs (DV) usually take up to 1 day or less. OV & EV SSLs take 5-10 business days, as we're validating not just domain ownership but also the existence of the organization or business on the SSL application. In both cases, you can shorten your wait by making sure the domain contact information listed in the WhoIs is up-to-date.
This depends on the software you use on your web server. Learn more

A Wildcard SSL Cert protects your primary domain, and an unlimited number of its subdomains. For example, a single Wildcard Certificate can secure both www.example.com and blog.example.com.
Wildcard Certificates secure the common name and all subdomains at the level you specify when you submit your SSL request.
Depending on how your website is configured, you might want to use something other than a single-domain SSL certificate.
Wildcard SSLs cover all of a domain name's subdomains. For example, you can secure *.example.com, which would cover shop.example.com, www.example.com and any other subdomains.
Multi-Domain SSLs can cover multiple subdomains, unique domain names and websites. For example, you can secure www.example1.com, mail.example1.com and www.example2.com.
