Best Affordable SSL Certificate Option for Your Website

Choosing the best option for your SSL security certificate for your Website, whether a new certificate or a renewal, is one of the most important decisions you will make. How do you choose the best one, and from what company should you order? Here are the basics: Domain Validation or DV SSL certificates (eg RapidSSL, GeoTrust QuickSSL, Thawte SSL123) issue fastest but do not supply ownership information, which populates with a question mark in Internet Explorer and “(unknown)” in Mozilla Firefox.

Organization Validation or OV certificates (eg VeriSign Secure Site, GeoTrust True BusinessID, Thawte SSL Web Server) are the next step up. The certificates supply ownership information but do not supply the green address bar indicator to establish more confidence among site visitors.

Extended Validation or EV certificates (eg VeriSign Secure Site with EV, GeoTrust True BusinessID with EV, Thawte SSL Web Server with EV) are the highest quality and most effective option. The certificates supply the green address bar, which according to VeriSign studies increase sales an average of 20%.

The other consideration is which company you should the order the certificate from. If you choose a company with a full catalog of quality, trusted brand name certificates, and reliable support, you can’t go wrong.

theSSLstore.com is just such an option.
