What makes our SSL Certificates so popular?
As well as offering premium web hosting we also offer a fantastic range of SSL certificates.
Standard SSL: Our standard SSL certificates are more than adequate for most of our customers needs. They will provide https, the green padlock and work across both your www and non-www domains.
Wildcard SSL: This option is intended for those who have lots of sub domains (not just www.) and want their SSL certificate to cover all of them (without the need for separate certificates on each).
Extended Validation SSL: An extended validation certificate also known as EV SSL is a certificate designed to give the users of your website more confidence in who they’re dealing with. It is tied and validated to a specific person/company/organisation and this information is featured in the certificate itself.

Why Use an SSL Certificate?
In the past, you only really needed an SSL certificate if you were running an online store and were taking card payments etc. These days they’ve become more than that. They’ve become a symbol of trust which instills confidence in the visitor that your website is secure for them to use.
What Does an SSL Certificate Do?
The primary function of any SSL certificate, regardless of type is to encrypt the data that passes between your website and the computer of the person viewing your website. The data passed could be usernames, passwords, personal information or even credit card information. An SSL certificate encrypts that data to prevent eavesdropping on route.
The Standard SSL
We offer a regular / standard SSL certificate here at HostPresto which is suitable for all users. The SSL certificate secures one domain and will provide a padlock icon on your visitors browser address bar. This certificate is Ideal for small, low traffic websites where a basic SSL functionality is required.
This option is the same as the standard SSL certificate but with the advantage of it being able to function on multiple subdomains. For example, if you have different parts of your site on section1.yourdomain.com and section2.yourdomain.com – the wildcard SSL option will cover all of them.
Extended Validation SSL
This is ideal for large / high traffic sites and provides a full green address bar in your visitors browser for the ultimate in visitor confidence. An extended SSL has been known to lead to increased sales and conversions. If you want to instill trust there is no better option than the EVSSL.
Frequently Asked Questions
What types of SSL certification does HostPresto offer?
We typically offer 3 types of certificate. The standard SSL which is suitable for all websites. The wildcard SSL (which is ideal if you’ve got more than one sub domain and don’t want to purchase a license for each) and the extended validation (EV SSL) which offers the height of security.
I want SSL certificates on multiple sub domains - is that an option?
Yes, if you purchase one of our wildcard SSL certificates you can use the same certificate on as many sub domains as you wish.
I want to accept credit cards via my online shop, do I need an SSL certificate?
Yes, if you want to accept any form of payments even if using a third party processor, you must have at least a basic SSL certificate.
I host multiple domains on my account, will one certificate work for all of them?
You will need a separate SSL certificate for each fully qualified domain name on your hosting account. If you are using sub domains such as site1.yourdomain.com and site2.yourdomain.com then a wildcard cert will suffice.
How do I get the fully green address bar and not just the regular padlock?
The fully green address bar and not simply the padlock is awarded when you have an extended validation (EV SSL) certificate. HostPresto offers these and can help you through the somewhat detailed application process.
A helping hand!
"I don’t know too much about SSL certificates, I don’t even know what it stands for. All I know is that my web designer told me I should buy one! I told HostPresto what he’d said and within minutes they had installed an SSL certificate onto my website. I’m not entirely sure why I need it but it was cheap and it seems to be working!"
Seriously fast service!
"I’ve just put through an order for a bunch of SSL certs for my client websites and surprisingly had all 8 of them up and running within 30 minutes. The support level at HostPresto is second to none and whatever your request you can expect it to be handled quickly and professionally.
