Gain customer confidence

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.

Better Google ranking

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.

World's strongest encryption

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.

Browser Ubiquity

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.

Safely accept credit cards on your website

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.

Top-Tier Support

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.

How it works?

An SSL creates a secure tunnel through which information including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can pass safely.

  • First, the SSL "handshake"

    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.

  • Second, The padlock icon appears

    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.

  • Finally, You're good to go

    All information passing to and from your website is now scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that's virtually unbreakable by hackers.

  • How do I install my SSL Certificate?

    When your SSL certificate is issued, we send an email to let you know. What happens next depends on where your site is hosted and the options you chose when you bought the certificate.

    If you chose web hosting, Website Builder or Online Store will take care of everything for you. If you host your website with another company or use our VPS or Dedicated Servers, learn more here.

  • What is an SSL Certificate?

    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.

  • What are the benefits of having an SSL Certificate on my website?

    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.

    For more information, see How does an SSL certificate work?

  • How will people know my website is safe?

    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.

  • What is the difference between Standard SSL and EV SSL?

    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?

  • Which SSL do I need?

    Answer these questions to help find the SSL you need:

    • 1. Do you have a business or personal website?
      Unless you sell things on your personal website, a Standard SSL (DV) is fine. This is also true for informational business sites. eCommerce websites should use a single-domain Standard SSL (DV) or SSL (EV).
    • 2. Which type of web hosting server do you use?
      Our SSL certificates work on most hosting and server configurations. To protect multiple domains on Microsoft's Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010 or Live® Communications Server, use a Multiple Domain SSL.
    • 3. How many different domains do you need to protect?
      Wildcard SSLs cover multiple subdomains. For example, use a Wildcard to protect *, which would cover, and any other subdomains.
      Multi-Domain SSLs will cover multiple domains, subdomains and websites. For example, you can secure,, and
  • How long will I have to wait for my SSL certificate?

    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.

  • How do I create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)?

    This depends on the software you use on your web server. Learn more

  • What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate?

    A Wildcard SSL Cert protects your primary domain, and an unlimited number of its subdomains. For example, a single Wildcard Certificate can secure both and

    Wildcard Certificates secure the common name and all subdomains at the level you specify when you submit your SSL request.

  • How many separate domains can I protect with HTTPS?

    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 *, which would cover, and any other subdomains.

    Multi-Domain SSLs can cover multiple subdomains, unique domain names and websites. For example, you can secure, and
