How does SSL work? The SSL security certificate from FullWebBuilder™ protects your visitors’ private information by encrypting the data sent from their computer to your website. The SSL protocol then decrypts the information for your web-server so it can process the information properly. With SHA-2 translation ad 2048-bit encryption, you and your visitors can rest assured that data being transmitted back and forth is for your and their eyes only. These combined protocols provide some of the best information protection service available.

More specifically: First, the visitor enters your SSL website, causing the security protocol to automatically generate a securely encrypted connection between your web-server and the visitor’s web-browser. Second, the https protocol is forced, and appears on the visitor’s web-browser along with the pad-lock icon, indicating the secure connection. With the added “Extended Validation” service installed on top of the SSL, the visitor’s browser will “turn on” the green bar and display the registered company or entity name associated with your domain – further proving the legitimacy of your website to your visitor. At this point, all information being passed back and forth between your website and your visitor is now encrypted in transit. With virtually un-hackable data transferring, you and your visitors can rest assured even veteran government agency security experts would be hard pressed to gain access to the transmission.


Frequently Asked SSL Questions

Is it true that Google requires sites to be SSL encrypted?

No, and yes. Google has included code in their search algorithms to warn people about sites which are not SSL encrypted. In addition to this, many search engines - including Chrome – have begun to block website content entirely and replace the home-page access with a warning screen regarding the lack of security and source validation of non-HTTPS secured websites. The average user, who does not know how to override this screen and continue onto the website, hits the back button on the browser and find’s another site from the search result. For sites which still appear, Chrome labels the sites “Not Secure” in its address bar – a red flag and “back button beacon” to many web surfers.


How do I install my SSL Security Certificate?

When you purchase an SSL Security Certificate from Full Web Builder, we immediately issue you an email regarding the process. Depending on where your website is hosted will determine the next step in the process. If your site and domain are hosted through us, we will take care of everything. If your domain and web-server are with other service providers, we will provide you with some basic instructions and details to complete the process.


What does SSL stand for?

SSL is the acronym for SECURE SOCKET LAYER. This security protocol is a validation and data encryption process enabled over the Internet Protocol services. This process locks out data spies from intercepting the information your visitors share with you via this service. But what an SSL really stands for is the confidence your visitors have in your website’s ability to protect their sensitive data, and their willingness to complete sensitive information forms and financial transactions on your site.


What is the major benefit to having an SSL?

If you have not read some of the other FAQ’s in this section, you have not yet been made aware of the two biggest benefits to having an SSL protected website. They are: 1.) Encouraging visitor participation in financial transactions and data sharing due to data encrypted and protected assurance, ad 2.) Increasing the Google ranking and web-browser presence of your website to the general public.


How do people know I have an SSL protected website?

SSL protected websites offer visual cues to visitors through their web-browser’s interface. The browser shows a padlock icon next to your websites' web-address, indicating a secure connection between the user’s computer and your website. The address also lists as HTTPS:// vs HTTP://. While this is a small difference, the awareness of such a prefix is growing exponentially and both younger generations enter the ecommerce world and older generations become more accustomed to seeing these sites thanks to web browser efforts to highlight and encourage SSL protected content. In addition to these, SSL protected sites have the option of adding seals. These seals are special clickable links which lead your visitors to view your SSL certificate’s status and its detailed listing information. This service ensures your customers that your site is safe to enter sensitive information and complete credit card transactions – even for many of the most distrusting individuals.


I see there is standard SSL, and then there is premium SSL. What is the difference between standard SSL and premium SSL?

While all SSL protected sites will enact the HTTPS protocol, those with premium SSL security certificates hold the additional Extended Validation (EV) protocol, which will activate the green address bar in web browsers.


The Extended Validation process involves extensive vetting by verifying the control of the domain, validating the legitimacy of your company through verification of legal filings, public listings, and known business relationships. As you can imagine, the Extended Validation process is no small act, usually taking one month to complete. For those who want to purchase a premium SSL certificate with Extended Validation through Full Web Builder, we will include a standard SSL certificate in the interim – allowing you to keep your transactions secure while you await the vetting process completion.

How long before my SSL certificate is active?

Depending on your webserver and domain access, standard SSL’s (SSL-DV) can take as little as five minutes to install and activate.

A “CSR” is a “Certificate Signing request.” A CSR can be created multiple ways and is part of the SSL validation process. How you need to create a CSR will depend on your web-server platform.


What is a UCC?

A “UCC” is a “Unified Communications Certificate.” It is an SSL which secures multiple domain names, and multiple host names within a single domain. UCC-SSL’s allow web-servers to secure ninety-nine additional “Subject Alternate Names” (SAN’s).

What is a Wildcard SSL?

A Wildcard SSL protects an unlimited number of subdomains in addition to the primary domain. In order to secure the subdomains, the registrant must specify those needing protection at the time of the SSL application request.
