SSL Certificates in Kenya

Keep Your Website Safe & Rank Better on Google

SSL certificates are a type of digital certificate that encrypts the information transferred between a user’s computer and a website. This ensures that the user’s confidential information, such as credit card numbers, is protected.

Why Do I Need an SSL Certificate?

How To Choose The Right SSL Certificate in Kenya

When shopping for an SSL Certificate in Kenya, there are different types to choose from but are categorized into two:

These types of SSLs are only issued after you’ve verified the legitimacy of domains.

Domain validation (DV) SSL Certificates

Domain Validation (DV) SSL Certificates are a type of SSL Certificate that is issued by a Certificate Authority (CA) after verifying that the entity requesting the certificate owns the domain name for which the certificate is being requested. This type of SSL Certificate is useful for websites that do not require a high level of security, as it is the least expensive and most quickly issued type of SSL Certificate.

Organisation validation (OV) SSL Certificates

Organisation validation (OV) SSL Certificates are a specific type of SSL Certificate that are used to verify the organisation that is behind a website. OV SSL Certificates are used to ensure that the website is actually owned and operated by the organisation that is stated in the certificate, and not by someone who has stolen the identity of the organisation. This is done by verifying the organisation’s details, such as its registered name and address, against public records.

Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates

EV SSL certificates are a type of security certificate that offer extended validation. This means that the issuing certificate authority (CA) performs a more rigorous identity verification process before issuing the certificate. This helps to ensure that the site owner is who they say they are, and that the site is legitimate. EV SSL certificates offer a higher level of security than standard SSL certificates, and are therefore ideal for online businesses that handle sensitive information.

These types of SSL Certificates depends on the number of domains (or subdomains) you’d like to secure.

Single domain SSL certificates

A single domain SSL certificate is a type of SSL certificate that is used to secure a single website or domain name. A single domain SSL certificate is a less expensive and less complicated option than a multi-domain SSL certificate, which can be used to secure multiple websites or domains.

Wildcard SSL Certificates

A wildcard SSL certificate allows you to secure an unlimited number of subdomains with a single certificate. This can be a great option if you have a lot of subdomains that you need to secure, or if you want to make it easier for your users to access your site. Wildcard certificates are also a good option for securing multiple domains with a single certificate.

Multi-Domain SSL Certificates

Multi-Domain SSL Certificates allow you to secure multiple domains with a single certificate. This can be helpful if you have multiple domains that you want to secure with a single certificate, or if you want to consolidate multiple certificates into one. Multi-Domain SSL Certificates are also sometimes called Unified Communications (UC) Certificates, because they can be used to secure multiple communication channels, such as email, voice, and video.

SSL Certificates FAQs in Kenya

SSL certificates are digital certificates that verify the identity of a website and encrypt the information sent to and from the site. They are used to protect online transactions and communications, such as credit card numbers and passwords.

SSL certificates are used to encrypt the traffic between a user’s browser and a web server, ensuring that the data passed between them is secure. This is important for eCommerce websites, as it protects users’ credit card information from being intercepted by third parties. SSL certificates can also be used to verify the identity of a website owner, proving that they are who they say they are.

To get an SSL certificate, you need to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) and send it to a Certificate Authority (CA). The CA will review your request and if it is approved, they will issue you an SSL certificate. 

Alternatively, pick a plan you like on this page, complete your order, and we will take it from there.

If your SSL is expiring soon, you should renew it as soon as possible. You can renew your SSL certificate by contacting us.

The length of time it takes to receive your certificate will depend on a few factors, such as the type of certificate you are getting. Typically, you can expect to wait two minutes to four weeks for your certificate to be issued.

There are three types of SSL certificates: domain-validated, organization-validated, and extended validation.

Domain-validated certificates are the simplest type of SSL certificate. They are issued to a domain owner after the owner proves that they own the domain.

Organization-validated certificates are more complex than domain-validated certificates. They are issued to an organization after the organization proves that it controls the domain and meets other requirements.

Extended validation certificates are the most complex type of SSL certificate. They are issued to an organization after the organization proves that it controls the domain, meets other requirements, and undergoes a rigorous vetting process.

The type of SSL certificate you need depends on the level of security and trust you want to establish. Domain-validated certificates are suitable for most websites. Organization-validated certificates are suitable for business websites that want to establish a high level of trust with their visitors. Extended validation certificates are only necessary for the most sensitive websites, such as those that handle financial transactions or personal information.

A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is a file that contains information about your website and your organization. It is used to generate an SSL certificate. You can create a CSR using the openssl command-line tool.

Installing an SSL certificate depends on the type of server you are using. Consult your server documentation for instructions.
