An Extended Validation or EV SSL certificate requires the most stringent vetting of your organization and provides maximum confidence for your customers. The certificates of choice for many banks and government bodies, EV SSL triggers the 'green bar of trust' in your visitors' browsers. This unbeatable sign of website security not only boosts confidence in your business, it also makes it near-impossible for phishers to hijack your site or your brand.
A Wildcard SSL is the right choice whenever there is a need for one computer to share information with another computer. A wildcard is particularly useful when running a website where your clients are signing on your secure server for payment purposes or your email program regularly communicates with another computer or program. Websites that use a Wildcard SSL to secure their online portals include leading banking websites, forums message boards and popular social networking sites.

Server-Gated Cryptography (SGC) enables 128 or 256-bit SSL encryption. This is the most powerful SSL encryption commercially available. An SCG-enabled certificate enhances SSL technology for visitors to your site using older browsers that have not been upgraded, allowing them to "step up" to a stronger level of SSL security. If you are looking to purchase an SGC-enabled certificate check out our range of certificates provided by our partners GlobalSign, Thawte and Symantec.
Unified Communications Certificates, also known as UC Certificates, or UCC Certificates give you full control of the "Subject Alternative Name" field. This allows you to secure as few or as many host names as you like with just one SSL certificate. UC certs have been developed for use with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or 2010. They can be used with any major server type to secure multiple Exchange services. Unlike wildcards, SAN SSL certificates are fully compatible with mobile browsers, such as smartphones, PDAs, and Blackberries.
If you need to secure your IP address rather than your domain name, an IP address SSL certificate is what you need. We offer two IP address SSL certificates. Both will give you the ‘https://’ prefix or the HTTPS certificate, if you prefer. That’s an instant sign of SSL encryption – and a mark of SSL security for your site users.
