Type of SSL Certificates

Network Solutions offers four major types of certificates. Here they are, from the most basic level of security to the high-level extended validation SSL:

Baisc: this SSL certificate is for a single domain, generally a small business or low-traffic operation. It may take 2-4 days to set up this SSL; once it is enabled, though, you're backed by an impressive $50,000 warranty.

Advanced: for those looking for a faster set-up time, higher warranty and a little more security.

Wildcard: this Network Solutions SSL cert is ideal for those businesses looking to secure a number of subdomains as well as their primary domain. If you've got a fairly extensive website with a number of pages requiring security, this might be the choice for you.

Extended Validation: This is for the busy customer who wants to give his or her customers the ultimate in security assurances. The green address bar lets customers know that you have undergone the strictest validation requirements when purchasing your SSL.
