More reasons to get a GoDaddy SSL certificate.

Stronger brand identity.

Our premium certificates help increase user confidence by showing you’ve secured your true identity online after being validated by an industry-recognized Certificate Authority. So, your SSL certificate indicates to customers that your organization is committed to protecting their data and online experience.

“Not Secure.” Not good.

When visitors type a URL or follow a link to a secure website that doesn’t have an SSL, that site is immediately flagged as “Not Secure.” And that scares potential customers away. But when you have a GoDaddy SSL certificate, any potential “Not Secure” warning goes away – for as long as you have the SSL certificate. And that’s a good thing.

Increased SEO ranking.

Search engines heavily favor https-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. That vastly increases the likelihood customers will find you.

Compliance with regulation standards.

An SSL certificate provides the strongest protection for online businesses, including standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR and more.

Customers will trust you.

And that’s important because trust is the cornerstone of SSL protocol – indicative of strict validation guidelines. Our SSL certificates feature the world’s best encryption to protect sensitive data.

Safe mobile and online payment systems.

Give customers the payment options they prefer – and keep them shopping through checkout. To do that safely and securely you’ll need an SSL certificate, the industry standard for end-to-end encryption protocol to thwart hackers from getting to your sensitive data.

How SSL certificates work.

An SSL certificate creates a secure digital tunnel that blocks hackers and thieves from seeing usernames,
passwords, credit card numbers and other valuable data.
Ftr1 First Ssl Agreement

First, the SSL agreement.

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.
Ftr3 Good To Go

Now you're good to go.

All information passing to and from your website is now encrypted, making your sensitive data virtually unhackable.
Ftr2 Padlock Icon Appears

The padlock icon appears.

Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and https prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show visitors to your website they’re safe to browse, shop, email you, subscribe to your mailing list, etc. And if there was a Not Secure tag before, poof now it’s gone. If you install an Extended Validation (EV) SSL, the browser display your company name to prove you're the legit business you are.
