SSL Digital Certificates

Confidence. Trust. Security.

Offering customers secure online data exchange has never been more important. SSL Certificates work in two ways: authenticating websites to ensure the owner is who they say they are and encrypting information sent to a website or between servers to keep it safe.

SSL Certificates make a perfect add on to domain name sales and are built directly into the Multivira management platform, making it easy for you to provision SSL Certificates to your customers. Multivira offers its resellers GeoTrust SSL Certificates at wholesale pricing, a cost-effective way to offer industry-leading protection.

What are SSL Certificates?

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a protocol that secures data sent across the Internet. A server must have an SSL certificate installed to make a secure connection and safely transfer information. The certificate is an electronic file that uniquely identifies individuals and servers.

Typically, digital certificates are signed by an independent and trusted third party to ensure their validity. The "signer" of a certificate is known as a Certification Authority (CA). Multivira resells GeoTrust SSL Certificates. GeoTrust is a leader in identity verification and trust services, and the second largest certificate authority in the world. The proven brand integrity of GeoTrust lets you know you are offering your customers a name they can trust.

Why should I sell them?

There are two online security problems that SSL certificates help solve:

  • Authentication - prove a company's (or server's) identity online to create a sense of trust and confidence.
  • Encryption - offer protection for the data submitted to a website (or between servers) so that in the event of interception, it will be unintelligible without the unique key used for decryption.

Solving these security problems protects your customers from spoofing, unauthorized disclosure and data alteration.

What are the practical applications of SSL Certificates?

The most common purpose of SSL Certificates is to secure the transmission of financial information in ecommerce. But with identity theft on the rise and more and more businesses opening up their networks via the Internet, protecting all types of personally identifiable information (social security numbers, login information) and key business information is important. SSL Certificates should be used to secure the following:

  • Web servers
  • Mail servers
  • Webmail
  • Databases
  • FTP sites
  • Internet chat
  • NNTP
  • Login pages
  • Web portals
