What to look for when choosing an SSL

Validation is a key SSL feature. We’ll help you learn about the different levels of validation and how to tell them apart.

Single domain SSLs only allow one unique domain or subdomain to be secured, wildcard SSLs allow multiple subdomains to be secured under one unique domain, and multi-domain SSLs allow multiple unique domains and subdomains to be secured with a single certificate.

How does it work?

To use an SSL after purchase, you will first need to activate it. Once the SSL is activated, you will receive installation instructions, after which it may be managed from the Account Panel.

What is included with an SSL certificate?

Check out these great features that come with every SSL Namecheap offers.

Site Seal

The site seal is a graphic representation of your protection and serves as a visual reminder to customers that your site is safe and protected. Most web users know to look for a site seal – it’s also the main reason people buy SSLs – so it's important to have one. Seals may vary in appearance depending on the type of certificate.

Top-Tier Support

At Namecheap, we’re known for providing the industry's finest customer service. That's due to our stellar support team. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable, Namecheap support staffers are some of the most polite, helpful people in the business. And they're available 24/7 to answer your questions and offer advice.

Browser Ubiquity

We handpick our SSL certificates to ensure strong browser ubiquity. Our certs are supported by all the popular browsers, which means that whichever one you use will recognize Namecheap's SSL verification, keeping the browsing experience smooth and hassle-free. No more customers wondering if the company issuing the cert is real or whether its protection is guaranteed.

Encryption Level

Security is determined by the number of bits used to generate the encryption key, which is then used to encrypt the data. Most of our SSL certificates use either 256-bit or 128-bit encryption, depending on the capabilities of web browser and server. Both 256- and 128-bit are industry standard for data protection.

Most frequently asked questions

  1. How do I activate an SSL certificate?

    Once your SSL cert has been purchased, the next step is to have a CSR code generated on the server where your website is hosted. You will need to have a dedicated IP address, or SNI technology active any shared servers. Using a web host that supports third-party SSL certificates, is important, as well, but if you are a Namecheap hosting customer, this requirement has already been fulfilled. Read more detailed instructions about activating your SSL cert.

  2. How do I reissue my SSL certificate?

    When you change your hosting service, believe that your CSR/RSA pair has been compromised, or replace the domain name(s) for which the SSL was issued, you need to have your SSL encryption certificate reissued. Changes to contact details in the certificate may require a reissue, as well. To begin the process, you must generate a new CSR/RSA pair and save your RSA for further installation. Be sure to save your RSA for later steps in the installation. This can usually be done by the user, but your hosting provider may be able to assist. At Namecheap, there is no cost to reissue your SSL certificate.

  3. How do I renew an SSL certificate?

    When you purchase an SSL certificate, an expiration date is encoded by the certificate authority, and cannot be changed. Beginning 30 days prior to the expiration, but before the actual expiry date, you must complete the renewal process. When you use Namecheap as your SSL provider, we will contact you via email during the renewal window to remind you to take action. The process is easy, and requires only four steps. Learn more about the SSL renewal process.
