Type of SSL Certificates

Do not be overwhelmed! Although TheSSLStore.com offers dozens of SSL certs, most can be broken down into the four major categories:

Standard SSL: basic or standard security level for sites with limited traffic; also suitable for secured intranet operations. Only the domain on which the web site is located is validated.

High Assurances SSL: a slightly elevated level of security; domain and business information are examined during the validation process, offering greater comfort to site visitors and customers. Ideal for small and medium sized e-commerce operations.

Extended validation (EV) SSL: this is the top level of security standard and designed to provide an improved level of authentication – well worth the higher price in many cases. EV SSL triggers advanced site indicators such as the green address bar. At TheSSLStore.com, Verisign is the major provider of EV certs.

Wildcard SSL: Secure multiple websites with one certificate as long as they share the same base domain name. Highly convenient for operations with numerous subdomains.

Once you've decided the category of SSL you need, The SSL Store lets you compare certificates by brand:

RapidSSL: if you're looking for a low-cost SSL solution, look no further than a RapidSSL cert from The SSL Store. Issued within minutes, RapidSSL offers standard and wildcard SSL cert.s RapidSSL offers unlimited server licensing for no extra cost.

Thawte SSL: Thawte heavily promotes its multilingual support, recognition of international domain names and robust authentication features. Thawte offers a number of certificates through TheSSLStore, all with high browser recognition and boasting the globally recognized Thawte name.

Geotrust SSL: the world's second-largest SSL vendor offers value-priced SSL certs with unlimited server licensing through TheSSLStore. Geotrust offers high-level warranties and worldwide recognition.

Verisign: TheSSLStore offers Verisign SSL certificates at up to 20% off. That's great value: Verisign is the world's leading SSL provider with almost perfect browser compatibility and the highest-level encryption and validation standards.
