Your own SSL certificate

If you have an SSL enabled website, the validity of that site is proven by having an electronic certificate signed by a recognised Certificate Authority (CA) that has rigorously checked you are who you say you are. This is to stop a third party from being able to pretend to be you in order to access the data being transferred between the visitor and your website.

An individual certificate is needed for each unique web server address (e.g. www.precedence.co.uk). Precedence, of course, we have our own certificate for our secure servers which means that SSL sites hosted on our shared servers can be accessed without you having to purchase your own certificate. This will mean that the site will be accessed as https://secure.ptlnet.com/yoursite/. Ifyou want your site to be accessed using your own domain (e.g. https://www.yourdomain.co.uk/), you will need to purchase your own certificate. If you have your own dedicated server, you will also need to purchase your own certificate.

As a Digicert Partner, we can provide Digicert, Thawte, GeoTrust and RapidSSL certificates as well as Code signing and Document signing certificates. We can also advise both on procedures and implementation.

N.B. Our certificates can be used with any webserver or device, not just our own products and services. They are ideal for use with NetManager Internet servers.
