Are you in web business and puzzled about what is SSL certificate? I am here to explain it to you.
SSL Certificate is a Encrypted path which is given to your website In order to avoid the missing transaction details to hackers. How SSL can contribute the best to your E-commerce? I would describe in three words like Authorization,Mediation,revocation. SSL Certificates can act as a three process for your website. The above process would be,
client ->Guard -> server -> object
Client- The customers coming to your website
Guard- SSL certificate which checks whether the request should be allowed
Server- Certificate authority
How does the Guard works i.e SSL certificate works:
SSL certificate works accordingly:
Authentication – During the authentication process SSL certificate figures out who is the user is?
Authorization – Add’s user to Active list.
Mediation – looks the current object in user’s supplied Row in the queue.
The above is the basic process which should be provided by the best certificate authority, If the certificate authority dint meet the above specification properly then the SSL certificate operation will be crashed for your website. The crashes in the SSL certificate is being occurred due to some unauthorized fake SSL certificates so you have to be beware of it.
Why Some SSL Certificates are untrusted and some SSL Certificate are trusted:
Browser will check whether your SSL certificate is trusted or untrusted , If it notifies to be untrusted then it is obvious that it is not signed by trusted root certificate or that it cant link certificate to trusted link certificate. Most of the self signed or poor certificate authorities fall down in this operation. Now what happen you would have believed that your web server is secured. Beware ,recently I have used the certificate from verisign , one of the chain certificates in between was not able to install to the root certificates, this made me disappointed. Then I switched to comodo SSL certificate ,At first i tried the Free SSL Certificate of major certificate authority called instantssl,it was very convincing me while comparing to my previous experience in getting SSL Certificates.
SSL certificate from instantssl i.e comodo gave me many features and it provides to explore indepth security for my website. SSL Certificate of comodo having many features like email certificate,browser compatibility then I had a second thought why not
tryout paid version of instantssl of comodo. I got SSL certificate from instant for only $64.95/yr with all full packed features I will explain you how to prevent natural errors which getting SSL Certificates with my experience. how will you choose your certificate name ,will you choose like this? example:domain name as http://ssl.comodo.com and certificate name as https://www.ssl.comodo.com ,if you access the site without the “www”,then while loading your website you will get SSL Certificate name error this usually called as ssl missmatch error.
These kind of information on on preventing mistakes on SSL Certificate was there in the comodo user guide which was in the SSL Certificate package I purchased. Now I have more trust in comodo certificate authority which directs in the marketplace not only to sell its product but it thinks one step ahead and give complete support,guide,security to their users.
I picked up an interesting thing about comodo SSL provider is Multidomain certificates. Using Multi domain certificates it made meto secure to 100 domains on the same server with a single certificate. Shared hosting environments can secure multiple domains on one SSL certificate. To consolidate your SSL management process and manage just one SSL certificate for multi domains,I am totally Impressed. I had a wonderful experience on using Comodo SSL Certificates ,I wish you to get the same best experience.
