EV is an Investment, Not an Expense

K® (Kenzie) of SAUDI GULF HOSTiNG understands that a Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate might be seen as an expense, but it’s not! An EV SSL Certificate is not just an expense, instead it’s an investment into both your business and online presence. This investment in your business and online presence is driven by trust. There’s even scientific research to back up the idea that Premium EV SSL certs are more trusted…

Georgia Tech’s Cyber Forensics Innovation (CyFI) Lab studied 2.6 million domains connected to EV SSL certificates, which showed that EV SSL certs are “99.99% more likely to be unassociated with bad cyber actors.” It’s long been known in the cybersecurity community that most phishing-related cybercrimes are associated with SSL certs that need a lower level of validation to obtain. These findings support the value of EV SSL certificates.
This is another reason why users trust websites that use Premium EV SSL certificates more than anyother SSL cert validation level.

Is EV for Me?

As we covered, having a Premium EV SSL Certificate doesn’t just secure your website, but having one also has a huge difference on your online presence. The only challenge that you might discover is with regards to the validation required for the Premium EV SSL Certificate. The validation required to get an EV SSL Certificate is not difficult for registered businesses, instead it’s meant to stop shady characters from applying for an EV SSL cert under a fake company name or business. For those interested in the validation process, our team has briefly covered the process for you below:
• Business Registration – To obtain an EV SSL Certificate you must be a registered business with your government.
• Operation Existence – The Certificate Authority (CA) will need to verify that your organization has been operating at your registered offices/location.
• Address Authentication - The organization must have both a physical and business presence in the country.
• Telephone Verification – Finally, the CA will need to conduct a telephone call using a public telephone number for the organization. This number is most commonly pulled from a Dun and Bradstreet listing and/or a YellowPages listing.
As mentioned before, it’s not hard at all for a legitimate business to complete the process listed above. With our team of experts, we’ve helped many companies navigate the process quickly and easily—we look forward to helping you as well!

What that padlock next to a URL means and why you NEED one…

SSL certificates fulfill a few purposes.

To secure and encrypt the connection

What is SEO, and why is it so important?

1. To secure and encrypt the connection between your web browser and the website that you are accessing.

authenticate the website

So how does it work SEO?

2. To authenticate the website you’re accessing, so you can be confident that you’re connected to the correct website.

Without SSL Certificate

Without an SSL Certificate being in place, the connection is left both unguarded and unauthenticated – meaning any and all information that you send to or receive from a website can be intercepted without much effort by hackers.

Why Do I Need
an SSL Certificate?

If you are a website admin/owner, leaving your website unsecured can be incredibly damaging for your users, business, and overall brand reputation. According to the latest Google Transparency Report, 93% of web traffic in the U.S. is encrypted. This means that users are accustomed to seeing that padlock icon next to an URL. You don’t want to be the website losing out on business because your website is displaying something else…

• PCI-DSS requires all ecommerce websites (worldwide) to use SSL/TLS (fines can be $50,000+/month)
• GDPR requires all businesses with European customers to encrypt customer data (fines can be up to 20 million euros)
• Canada, New York, California, Brazil, and many other regions have similar laws

These are very important laws/regulations that need to be taken seriously. If you fall into one of these categories, it is imperative you get the appropriate SSL certificate.

Avoid Browser Warnings for Non-HTTPS Websites

If you want people to find your business in Saudi, Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman when they search online, you need to make sure your website shows up on search engines. SEO is the process of making your website more “friendly” for search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo, which helps them categorise your site and display it in relevant search results. Optimising your site can improve its organic search result ranking, making your business easier to find when potential customers search for products and services related to your business. For more information, see What is search engine optimisation and why should I care?

Maintain Compliance with Applicable Regulations

Maintain Compliance with Applicable Regulations

Nearly every country and industry has at least one law/regulation that requires businesses to encrypt sensitive customer data. Businesses who fail to use SSL/TLS (and other mechanisms) to encrypt customer data can face substantial fines. For example:

• PCI-DSS requires all ecommerce websites (worldwide) to use SSL/TLS (fines can be $50,000+/month) • GDPR requires all businesses with European customers to encrypt customer data (fines can be up to 20 million euros) • Canada, New York, California, Brazil, and many other regions have similar laws These are very important laws/regulations that need to be taken seriously. If you fall into one of these categories, it is imperative you get the appropriate SSL certificate.

Enable Additional Browser Features

Enable Additional Browser Features

When running a business, the last thing you want your users to run into are errors or a lack of functionality on your website – nothing can be more frustrating. Well, without HTTPS, your users could find themselves running into quite a few. Here are a few features that only work on HTTPS websites:

• Browser notifications (which can be an excellent marketing channel)
• Geo-location (a key feature for any local business website, to give directions and locate nearby stores)
• Webcam/microphone access (important for many websites in our communicate-from-anywhere world!)

In the ever-evolving technological world, you don’t want to be left behind because you don’t have something as simple as an SSL certificate.

Speed Up Your Website with HTTP/2

HTTP/2 is the latest version of HTTP.
Enabling HTTP/2 can reduce your website’s page load time by over 13%. We all know how important page load times are for converting web traffic. Most major browsers fully support HTTP/2, but they will only support it over an encrypted connection. This means you need an SSL certificate to ensure you and your users enjoy the benefits of HTTP/2.

Get SEO Benefits with SSL/TLS

Google has made it clear that security is a top priority for not only them, but should be for all webmasters. As part of their call for “HTTPS Everywhere”, Google further expanded the call to reward those webmasters who secure their websites with SSL/TLS encryption. The reward? Google rewarded those with SSL/TLS encryption with a boost in SEO rankings.
What are the Different Tiers of SSL Certificates?
There are three different types of authentication levels. Domain Validation, Organization Validation, and Extended Validation. Each of these provide encryption, but they carry different levels of verification, visual indicators, and added benefits to secure your website.

Domain Validation DV SSL

Basic
Domain Validation (DV)

Domain Validated (DV) SSL Certificate is the first tier of SSL/TLS Certificates. Often known for their no-frills encryption and quick issuance, Domain Validated SSL Certificates are quick to get up and running but only prove ownership of the domain being secured.

Organization Validation OV

Business
Organization Validation (OV)

A Business Organization Validated (OV) SSL Certificate is the middle tier of SSL/TLS Certificates. Known for their Organization Verification and Dynamic Site Seals, they’re a great starting point for those looking to showcase their organization.

Extended Validation EV

Premium
Extended Validation (EV)

A Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate is the highest tier of SSL/TLS Certificates on the market.

What are the Different Types of Certificates?
Now that you’re aware of the different validation types of SSL Certificates, let’s introduce you to the different types of SSL Certificates. There’s Single Domain SSL Certificates, Multi-Domain (SAN) Certificates, and Wildcard SSL Certificates. All serve the same purpose of encrypting personal information being sent from the client and the webserver, but all provide different capabilities and flexibility for the web master.

Single Name Certificates

Single Name Certificates

By far the simplest type of SSL certificate, Single Name Certificates provide coverage for just a single domain. Thus, making it easier to control and manage for your team.

Multi-Domain SAN Certificates

Multi-Domain SAN Certificates

As the name suggests, Multi-Domain Certificates provide coverage for multiple domains. This can be extremely helpful for webmasters that own and manage multiple sites.

Wildcard Certificates

Wildcard Certificates

Wildcard SSL Certificates are extremely helpful for web masters that utilize a lot of sub-domains because of their capability to secure an unlimited number of subdomains.

Not looking for an SSL Certificate?

Not looking for an SSL Certificate? SSL Certificates are not the only security product that offers.

Code Signing Certificates

Code Signing Certificates

Code Signing Certificates ensure that the software, application, or app has not been modified since being created by the developer. Often referred to as being the digital “shrink wrap” because it validates the code is in its original form.

Email & Document Signing Certificates

Email & Document Signing Certificates

Email & Document Signing Certificates have become a standard in the industry with regards to ensuring that communication that is sent is validated and that the contents have not been modified since being sent.
