Add an SSL Certificate
We offer a variety of Geotrust and Comodo certificates to protect your domains.
- Standard – Protect your domain with a certificate that says your business information has been independently verified.
- OV – Basic identity verification. Ideal for small business websites and pages accepting sensitive information.
- EV – Your business credentials are validated more extensively, and you get the “green bar” in browsers.
- Wildcard– Protect multiple options of the same base domain (i.e. www.sample.bank and directory.sample.bank)
