What is SSL?

The Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is the most widely deployed security protocol used today. It is essentially a protocol that provides a secure channel between two machines operating over the Internet or an internal network.

An SSL Certificate is a small data file that digitally binds a cryptographic key to your organization's details, typically:

  • Your domain name, server name, or hostname
  • Your company name and location
  • In certain cases your organizational contact details

How should SSL be used?

No matter what information is being submitted you should be using SSL. SSL is not just for securing credit card transactions. All levels of personal information are sensitive and should be secured, from newsletter signups to account logins, SSL should be the minimum security standard when collecting and submitting data.

SSL should be used:

  • To secure online credit card transactions.
  • To secure online system logins, sensitive information transmitted via web forms, or protected areas of websites.
  • To secure webmail and applications like Outlook Web Access, Exchange, and Office Communications Server.
  • To secure the connection between an email client such as Microsoft Outlook and an email server such as Microsoft Exchange.
  • To secure the transfer of files over https and FTP(s), services such as website owners updating new pages to their websites, or transferring large files.
  • To secure hosting control panel logins and activity like Parallels, cPanel, and others.
  • To secure intranet based traffic such as internal networks, file sharing, extranets, and database connections.

SSL Configurations

Wildcard SSL

With the Wildcard SSL option activated you expand what's possible by receiving an SSL Certificate issued to *.domain.com. The * character allows the Certificate to be used on an unlimited number of subdomains across an unlimited number of servers, all for the same one-time cost even if you add more subdomains or servers in the future.

Wildcard SSL is an option available for either AlphaSSL, DomainSSL or OrganizationSSL Certificates.

Multi-domain SSL Certificates from GlobalSign utilize Subject Alternative Names (SANs) to give you the flexibility to secure up to 100 different domain names, subdomains, and public IP addresses using only one SSL Certificate and using only one IP address.
