What Is the Best SSL Certificate for My Business?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol that ensures privacy and secures the connection between your website and your visitor’s browser. By securing the connection and online transaction on your website will help build your visitor’s confidence and trust. This is essential if you have an E-commerce website or a website that uses forms to collect data from your visitors. And knowing what is the best SSL Certificate for your business is as important as getting one.

In this guide, you’ll learn what are the different SSL types you can choose from with Crazy Domains. And give you insights on which of these types is tailored to your business needs.


What Are the Different SSL Types

You can choose from these different SSL types for your website: Standard, Premium, and Wildcard.


The differences between these types are as follows:

SSL Type Description
Standard SSL Standard SSL is a Domain Validation certificate, the most basic level of SSL validation. It works for a single website and verifies that your domain is genuine. For most small business sites that do not deal with sensitive information, this type of certificate is fine, and it features the familiar padlock and https connection type.
Premium SSL Featuring the strongest possible levels of encryption, combined with the latest EV SSL. This SSL type delivers a new level of trust to your web site. This ensures that your business is genuine, not simply that the connection with your users is secure. If you handle any type of sensitive information, this type of certificate is preferable.
Wildcard SSL This is the strongest type of SSL encryption. It is an Organizationally Validated SSL certificate. This is ideal for service providers who need to send sensitive data on their servers such as credit card numbers and contact information. It also includes SSL validation for multiple subdomains.



The encryption that the SSL Certificates provide, prevents hackers from stealing confidential information that your visitors sent via online. And getting your website secured with SSL Certificates, helps you build trust with your visitors, that your website is a safe place to enter private and sensitive data such as credit card information, bank information, etc.

If you transact business on your website, then getting an SSL Certificate is right for you. Please let us know if you need any further assistance, or if you have any questions. We’d love to know!
