How to choose an SSL certificate

Validation is a key feature of SSL certification. Here’s how they differentiate from each other.

As their name implies, Single domain SSL certificates only secure a single unique domain or subdomain. Wildcard SSL certificates let site owners secure multiple subdomains under a single unique domain. Multi-domain SSL certificates allow multiple unique domains and subdomains to be secured with a single certificate.


SSL Certification in Four Easy Steps

After you purchase an SSL certificate, it needs to be activated. After activation, you’ll receive installation instructions. From that point, you can manage your certificate in the Namecheap Account Panel.


What comes with an SSL certificate?

Every SSL certificate issued by Namecheap comes with these great features.

SSL Site Seal

The site seal offers visual proof of the security provided by your website’s SSL certificate. It’s so important, in fact, that it’s become the main reason many website owners and managers buy an SSL certificate as most web users know to look for it. Seals vary in appearance depending on the type of SSL certificate issued, but they all mean the same thing: your user’s data is protected.

Top-Tier Support

Namecheap is known for providing best-in-class customer service thanks to our stellar support team. Namecheap support staffers are some of the most polite, helpful people in the business, with a wealth of knowledge about every product and service we offer.

Browser Ubiquity

Namecheap’s experts have hand-picked our SSL certificate selection to ensure the broadest popular browser compatibility. Our certificates are supported by all the popular browsers, which means that whichever one you use will recognize Namecheap's SSL verification, keeping the browsing experience hassle-free. Your users will never wonder if the company issuing the certificate is real or whether protection is guaranteed.

Encryption Level

The level of security provided by an SSL certificate is determined by the number of bits used to generate the encryption key. That key 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.
