There is a traditional consideration that SSL affects a website’s load time due to various factors, the main being that SSL adds latency to the page load because browser needs to wait for the issuer (the CA) of the SSL certificate (eg. GlobalSign, Symantec) to confirm that the certificate is still valid before page content is rendered. This results in visitor experiencing a delay in the normal page load speed. In the world of optimally performing websites, every millisecond counts; the less time a visitor waits for your website to load, the better. Organizations that choose their SSL certificate provider carefully can avoid reducing the performance of their websites. Read more how XcellHost and GlobalSign help make secure sites load faster.
Typically an SSL certificate is issued to a single domain name, and can be used only to secure the exact domain name to which it has been issued for. For example, an SSL certificate issued to www.yourwebsite.com will not secure yourwebsite.com and SSL certificate for the non-www version of the domain will have to be purchased separately. XcellHost allows you to install the same SSL certificate on as many servers as needed at no extra cost, and a single XcellHost SSL certificate secures both yourwebsite.com and www.yourwebsite.com. In addition, three domains – OWA (owa.yourdomain.com), MAIL (mail.yourdomain.com) and Autodiscover (autodiscover.yourdomain.com) are secured for free with every XcellHost SSL certificate. If you want to secure multiple websites with a single SSL certificate and on a single IP address, XcellHost offers two different multi-domain SSL Certificates: Wildcard SSL and Multi-Domain SSL with support for Subject Alternative Names, or SAN, fields)to save you significant cost and hassle.
The cost of the SSL certificate used to secure your website can significantly manifold with the number of subdomains you want to secure. The superior technology of XcellHost’s SSL certificates ensure that you receive premium features such as installing a single SSL certificate on multiple servers free of charge (other providers charge extra), thus saving you both significant cost and hassle. For even more enhanced flexibility of your server configurations, host names, domain names and IP addresses, explore XcellHost’s Multi-domain SSL and WildCard SSL certificates.
Ever since SSL certificates have become a buzz-word and a must for secure online presence, many website owners think that getting an SSL certificate ensures complete security of their website, which is far from the truth. An SSL certificate, if not coupled with other proper security measures, is only half as effective as it should be. Apart from securing the to-and-fro data transactions from a website, it is also vital to ensure the server side and website pages security. For example, attackers often exploit vulnerabilities on your web server to use your website to distribute viruses and steal confidential data from your customers, and to bury phishing attack pages deep into your website. If Google identifies your domain as one being used for such malicious activities, it blacklists it without any further notification. Our partnership with Cloudflare, the network performance specialist, ensures that your SSL secured websites load many times faster regardless of where your customer is in the world. Netcraft means that XcellHost SSL customers receive around the clock alerts should the Netcraft identify a phishing page and you will be notified of its location on your website.

SSL certificate compatibility is a very important factor to consider when you are deciding on an SSL provider. SSL Certificates are only recognized by a browser if the Root Certificate of the CA is present within the “Trusted Root Certificates” store of the browser. CA Root Certificates are added into the Trusted Root Certificate store by the browser or operating system vendors, such as Microsoft or Netscape. In general SSL vendors need to be audited to WebTrust complaint standards set by the AICPA. If you use an extremely cheap, low-end technology SSL Certificate, that has been issued by a CA Root Certificate not present in the Trusted Root Certificate store in one of the commercially available browsers then the visitor’s browser will display a warning message. Clearly, you need to avoid such warnings. XcellHost’s SSL certificates are compatible with all the major browsers, OSs, devices, and applications, and that’s what makes them worth paying for.
