How SSL Certificates Work

An SSL Certificate is like a digital passport that confirms the holder's credentials for conducting business on the Internet. When Web users send information such as their names, addresses and credit card numbers to a website secured with an SSL Certificate, the user's browser validates the recipient's digital certificate before establishing an encrypted connection. This process protects information from outside viewing as it flows both to and from the certificate holder's website.

In May of 2004, GoDaddy started selling SSL Certificates for a fraction of the price that other companies were charging. Since then, GoDaddy has become the #1 provider of net new SSL Certificates according to Netcraft (and prices are still only a fraction of what the competition charges).

The disparity in prices is amazing, particularly because all of GoDaddy's SSLs offer the same level of encryption and browser recognition. Plus, all GoDaddy SSL Certificates support an unlimited number of servers while most other companies' certificates support only one server.

GoDaddy also offers other certificate services: Certified Domains verify the identity of a website's owner and reassure visitors that the site is not fraudulent, and Code Signing Certificates protect software code from being copied or altered.

GoDaddy's business controls and practices have been thoroughly reviewed by an independent accountant to ensure they conform to the international AICPA/CICA WebTrust for Certification Authorities Principles and Criteria.

According to WebTrust, "A WebTrust attestation engagement focuses on risk areas related to e-commerce activities and the appropriate policies and controls to manage those risks to the benefit of both the entity and the entity's customers. The end result is a more robust and secure system." The WebTrust review process, sponsored by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, culminated in GoDaddy's receipt of a WebTrust Seal of Assurance for Certification Authorities. WebTrust's distinctive seal of assurance displays on the GoDaddy website. All supporting documentation for GoDaddy's SSL Certificates can be found online in the SSL repository.
