Simple defenses and affordable tools.
It’s wild, the internet. And your website is connected to all of it. It’s a good thing! It’s also a not-secure thing. Not-secure websites send and receive unencrypted data which can be watched, altered or stolen.
Let your audience know how to keep in touch.
Design your web pages the easy way.
Take your website to the top of the charts.
When people try to visit a not-secure site, their browsers will warn them: This connection is not secure. It looks bad. It erodes trust. It’s supposed to. Those websites are not guaranteed to be safe. They don’t have an SSL certificate.
An SSL certificate is what gives trusted sites the secure padlock in the address bar. That lock icon is proof to visitors that you care about their data. You look safe, and it’s making the internet safer.
In addition to the secure padlock, an SSL certificate ensures that all data going to and from your site is encrypted so it can’t be altered or misused. But there’s more than one way to disrupt websites.
Website Security and backup.
Luckily, hacks, unexpected downtime and worse can be avoided. Website Security scans your site for malicious activity and alerts you when something (or someone) is attempting to mess with your stuff.
If something does happen, Website Security Express will clean the infected site ASAP. The best thing you can do to protect a secure site is to back it up, daily. With automatic Website Backup, you can set it and forget it, knowing a secure version is at your fingertips when you need it. It’s a safety net.
That’s what adding security to your website is — a safety net, an insurance policy, and an investment. Invest in your business, brand, storefront and social gathering place with the complete protection of website security tools. It’s the easiest way to get secure and stay secure.
Online security is a major challenge with small business owners.
Website security gets pushed to the bottom of the to-do list if it’s considered at all. Unfortunately, that means many small-business sites become easy targets. There’s good news though. It’s no longer as complex, time- consuming or expensive as you might think.

More reasons to get a Deerstone Development SSL certificate.
Stronger brand identity.
Our premium certificates help increase user confidence by showing you’ve secured your true identity online after being validated by an industry-recognized Certificate Authority. So, your SSL certificate indicates to customers that your organization is committed to protecting their data and online experience.
“Not Secure.” Not good.
When visitors type a URL or follow a link to a secure website that doesn’t have an SSL, that site is immediately flagged as “Not Secure.” And that scares potential customers away. But when you have a Deerstone Development SSL certificate, any potential “Not Secure” warning goes away – for as long as you have the SSL certificate. And that’s a good thing.
Increased SEO ranking.
Search engines heavily favor https-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. That vastly increases the likelihood customers will find you.
Compliance with regulation standards.
An SSL certificate provides the strongest protection for online businesses, including standards and regulations such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, HITECH, GDPR and more.
Customers will trust you.
And that’s important because trust is the cornerstone of SSL protocol – indicative of strict validation guidelines. Our SSL certificates feature the world’s best encryption to protect sensitive data.
Safe mobile and online payment systems.
Give customers the payment options they prefer – and keep them shopping through checkout. To do that safely and securely you’ll need an SSL certificate, the industry standard for end-to-end encryption protocol to thwart hackers from getting to your sensitive data.
How SSL certificates work.
An SSL certificate creates a secure digital tunnel that blocks hackers and thieves from seeing usernames,
passwords, credit cards numbers and other valuable data.
First, the SSL agreement.
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected website, your SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your site is most secure when SSL is deployed on all pages and subdomains.
The padlock icon appears.
Once the connection is complete, a padlock icon and https prefix appear in the visitor’s browser bar to show visitors to your website they’re safe to browse, shop, email you, subscribe to your mailing list, etc. And if there was a Not Secure tag before, poof now it’s gone. If you install an Extended Validation (EV) SSL, the browser displays your company name to prove you’re the legit business you are.
Now you’re good to go.
All information passing to and from your website is now encrypted, making your sensitive data virtually unhackable.

Frequently asked questions about SSL certificates:
How do I install my SSL certificate?
When your SSL certificate is issued, we send an email to let you know. What happens next depends on where your site is hosted and the options you chose when you bought the certificate.
If you chose web hosting, Website Builder or Online Store will take care of everything for you. If you host your website with another company or use our VPS or Dedicated Servers, learn more here.

Code signs don’t alter the software – it’s just an added layer of assurance for your end users.
When software is purchased from a store, it’s easy to tell who published the software – and if the package was tampered with. Unfortunately, these factors aren’t as obvious when software is purchased online. As a result, end users take on a certain amount of risk when downloading Java applets, plugins, Microsoft® ActiveX® controls, and other executables over the Internet.
What is an SSL certificate?
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It might sound complex, but it’s really not. SSL certificates validate your website’s identity and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site. This keeps thieves from spying on exchanges between you and your shoppers.
When you have an SSL certificate protecting your website, your customers can rest assured that the information they enter on any secured page is private and can’t be viewed by cyber crooks. Deerstone Development makes it easy to install your certificate and secure your server.
For more information, see Defining SSL Certificates.
What are the benefits of having an SSL certificate on my website?
Deerstone Development SSL certificates inspire trust and show visitors that you value their privacy. An SSL certificate protects your customers’ sensitive information such as their name, address, password, or credit card number by encrypting the data during transmission from their computer to your web server. SSL is the standard for web security, and a server certificate is required by most merchant account services – you’ll need one if you plan to accept credit cards on your website.
For more information, see How does an SSL certificate work?
How will people know my website is safe?
How you build your website is entirely up to you. In fact, most basic secure websites can be hand-coded using HTML.
When a visitor enters an SSL-protected page on your website, their browser bar displays a padlock icon and the https:// prefix in the URL address. While most Internet users know to look for those SSL indicators, you can also add a site seal to your website to show visitors your site is verified and secured. Visitors can click the seal to view your certificate’s status and details, seeing for themselves that it’s safe to send sensitive information to your website.
For more information, see Verifying a Certificate’s Validity on Your Computer.
What is the difference between Standard SSL certificate and a Premium SSL certificate?
All SSL-protected sites display the https:// prefix in the URL address bar. Sites protected with a Premium EV SSL Certificate display a green browser bar to quickly assure visitors that the organization’s legal and physical existence was verified according to strict industry standards.
Deerstone Development Premium EV SSL Certificate involves the most extensive vetting process. We verify the control of the domain and legitimacy of your company by validating the legal name, address, phone number, and other business information. The process takes about 30 days, but we’ve got you covered during that time. EV SSL certificates come with a free Standard SSL to use during the vetting process, so you can keep your transactions secure while you wait.
For more information, see What are the advantages of a Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate for your business?
Why should I buy an SSL certificate from Deerstone Development?
For one thing, our SSL certificates cover unlimited secure servers. They support up to 2048-bit encryption and they’re recognized by all of the major desktop and mobile browsers on the market. Plus, they’re backed by the industry’s best 24/7 phone service and support. There’s absolutely no technical difference between Deerstone Development SSL certificates and those offered by other companies – they simply cost less. Is it any wonder we’re the largest provider of net new SSL certificates in the world?

What is a Wildcard SSL certificate?
A Wildcard SSL certificate protects your primary domain and an unlimited number of its subdomains. For example, a single Wildcard Certificate can secure both www.coolexample.com and blog.coolexample.com.
Wildcard certificates secure the common name and all subdomains at the level you specify when you submit your SSL request.
Which SSL certificate do I need?
Answer these questions to help find the SSL certificate you need:
- Where are you located? Our certificates are issued worldwide with a few exceptions. Check this list to see if you’re covered.
- Do you have a business or personal website? Unless you sell things on your personal website, a Standard SSL certificate (DV) is fine. This is also true for informational business sites. eCommerce websites should use a single-domain Standard SSL certificate (DV) or Premium SSL certificate (EV).
- Which type of web hosting server do you use? Our SSL certificates work on most hosting and server configurations. To protect multiple domains on Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2007, Exchange Server 2010 or Live® Communications Server, use a Multiple Domain UCC SSL.
- How many different domains do you need to protect? Wildcard SSL certificates cover multiple subdomains. For example, use a Wildcard to protect *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com and any other subdomains. UCC SSL certificates will cover multiple domains, subdomains, and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com, and www.awesomeexample.com.
- Do you need an SSL certificate that supports Intel vPro technology for remote PC management? You’ll need our OV Deluxe certificate.
How long will I have to wait for my SSL certificate?
A Standard SSL (DV) usually takes 5 minutes or less. A Deluxe SSL (OV) takes 3-5 business days because we’re validating not just domain ownership but also the existence of the organization or business on the SSL application.
For Premium (EV) certificates, there is an extensive vetting process that starts with an in-depth application. Before you start, pull together details about your business, such as registration number, incorporation or registration agent and any relevant jurisdiction information.
How do I create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)?
This depends on the software you use on your web server. Learn more

What is a Unified Communications Certificate (UCC)?
A Unified Communications Certificate (UCC) is an SSL certificate that secures multiple domain names as well as multiple hostnames within a domain name. A UCC SSL certificate lets you secure a primary domain name and up to 99 additional Subject Alternative Names (SANs) with a single SSL certificate. For example, you can use a UCC to protect www.domains1.com, www.domains2.net, and www.domains3.org.
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.
How many separate domains can I protect with HTTPS?
Depending on how your website is configured, you might want to use something other than a single-domain SSL certificate.
- Wildcard SSL certificates cover all of a domain name’s subdomains. For example, you can secure *.coolexample.com, which would cover shop.coolexample.com, www.coolexample.com and any other subdomains.
- UCC SSL certificates can cover multiple subdomains, unique domain names and websites. For example, you can secure www.coolexample.com, mail.coolexample.com and www.awesomeexample.com.
