Secure Socket Layer
Obtaining a Digital Certificate
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a technology used to
transfer data across the Internet in a safe, encrypted format. This is
important if you accept credit card orders via your web site.
To utilize SSL technology within your site, you must purchase an SSL
"Digital Certificate". To order yours through Web Panache,
simply follow the steps below.
Step One - Select a Vendor
Web Panache supports certificates from the
following vendors. Although the technology is similar, prices
vary. Please visit each vendor's web site for current pricing
information. The amounts displayed below are approximate and may be outdated.
These vendors do more than provide the
technology. They verify and authenticate the companies using their
certificates. This is the real value of their service.
Step Two - Complete Our Request Forms
Web Panache has partnership status with each
of the vendors above. As such, we are able to simplify the process by
ordering your certificate for you. Simply
complete the forms and we take care of the rest!
Step Three - Send Payment
Payment for your SSL Certificate is
required in advance. Upon receipt of the request forms, you will be
invoiced via e-mail. Once payment is received, your certificate
is ordered and installed when approved.
Note: Our servers support all
certificates, however, if you are considering transferring an existing
certificate with your domain, please contact us. Some certificates are
not transferable (particularly coming from a UNIX server to our
Windows NT platform).
If you prefer a vendor not listed here, please tell
us about it. We will contact them and determine if we can support
