All domains are listed in a UCC. If you want to secure both fully qualified (example: www.coolexample.com) and partially qualified (example: coolexample.com) domains with a UCC, make sure to select a domain for each one. Know which domains you need to cover when you purchase, because you cannot upgrade.
Well, Private Key/Public Key encryption algorithms are great, but they are not usually practical. It is asymmetric because you need the other key pair to decrypt. You can’t use the same key to encrypt and decrypt. An algorithm using the same key to decrypt and encrypt is deemed to have a symmetric key. A symmetric algorithm is much faster in doing its job than an asymmetric algorithm. But a symmetric key is potentially highly insecure. If the enemy gets hold of the key then you have no more secret information. You must therefore transmit the key to the other party without the enemy getting its hands on it. As you know, nothing is secure on the Internet. The solution is to encapsulate the symmetric key inside a message encrypted with an asymmetric algorithm. You have never transmitted your private key to anybody, then the message encrypted with the public key is secure (relatively secure, nothing is certain except death and taxes). The symmetric key is also chosen randomly, so that if the symmetric secret key is discovered then the next transaction will be totally different.
HTTPS is a great (despite being the only) method of securing web traffic and providing visitors with much-needed privacy these days when cyber crimes such as credit card data and identity theft are on the rise. However, it is important to understand that implementing it has to cover more bases than plain certificate installation. There are crucial aspects to consider, which if unchecked may affect visitor UX, revenue, brand image and your business as a whole.
The TLS_DH_anon and TLS_ECDH_anon key agreement methods do not authenticate the server or the user and hence are rarely used because those are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attack. Only TLS_DHE and TLS_ECDHE provide forward secrecy.
By the end of this article, you should be well versed not only with the meaning behind the terms SSL and HTTPS, why they’re important, how do they work, and how to implement them on your website; but we’ll also take a look at their significance in your overall digital marketing setup. Without further ado, let’s encrypt..I mean, start (you’ll get the pun later on).

Google has agreed to continue recognizing and trusting Symantec SSL certificate provided that Symantec takes requisite steps to address issues with its PKI. This will be done by shifting Symantec’s issuance needs to a managed third-party Certificate Authority while it rebuilds its own PKI infrastructure.
Your SSL certificates can use a wildcard in the common name. For example, a certificate with the common name *.example.com. matches the hostnames www.example.com and foo.example.com, but not a.b.example.com or example.com. When the load balancer selects a certificate, it always prefers to match a hostname to certificates without wildcards over certificates with wildcards.
UCCs are compatible with shared hosting and ideal for Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010, and Microsoft Live® Communications Server. However, the site seal and certificate “Issued To” information will only list the primary domain name. Please note that any secondary hosting accounts will be listed in the certificate as well, so if you do not want sites to appear ‘connected’ to each other, you should not use this type of certificate.

This article outlines how to implement a certificate from a trusted authority such as GoDaddy. Also, you will find information about how to use the certificate for IMail with IIS. If you do not have the updated SSL utility we’ve included a copy of it below. Please be sure to extract the files into the IMail top directory or the new utility will NOT work.
The short answer is that the web browsers are beginning to require it as a basic standard. The internet, as we know it, is built on HTTP or Hypertext Transfer Protocol. And while HTTP has performed admirably over the past two decades, it has one glaring flaw: it’s not secure. Any information transmitted via an HTTP connection is out in the open. When I say that, I mean that it’s easy to eavesdrop on the connection. From there you can steal information, or position yourself between the user and the server, allowing you to perform what is called a Man-in-the-Middle attack.
The number shocked industry experts. Because Symantec was the one of the largest CA on the market, few dared to react. The first one to show its displeasure with Symantec’s SSL issuance procedures was Google, who a few days later after the discovery announced an intention to gradually remove support for Symantec certificates in Chrome.
The longer you lock in on your SSL Certificate, the more cash you save. First of all, GoDaddy gives a better price for more months. Additionally, the coupon will substract even more cash from this discounted price.

Your GoDaddy SSL Certificate will always have expiration date before which you have to renew the certificate. In case you fail to renew your certificate, your GoDaddy SSL Certificate will be rendered useless and invalid and will no longer be able to guarantee secure transactions.
Encryption is a mathematical process of coding and decoding information. The number of bits (40-bit, 56-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit) tells you the size of the key. Like a longer password, a larger key has more possible combinations. In fact, 128-bit encryption is one trillion times stronger than 40-bit encryption. When an encrypted session is established, the strength is determined by the capability of the web browser, SSL certificate, web server, and client computer operating system.
As You may have noticed, the certificate contains the reference to the issuer, the public key of the owner of this certificate, the dates of validity of this certificate and the signature of the certificate to ensure this certificate hasen’t been tampered with. The certificate does not contain the private key as it should never be transmitted in any form whatsoever. This certificate has all the elements to send an encrypted message to the owner (using the public key) or to verify a message signed by the author of this certificate.
An SSL Certificate will contain information on the domain name, its owner and the physical location of the owner and the validity dates of the certificate. SSL Certificates are thus a useful tool in determining whether websites are trustworthy or not. Many online shoppers will not risk buying items on a non-secure site.
