Assurance & Authentication
It's quick, cost-effective & easy to install a DV SSL certificate, and this solution offers a basic level of assurance to site users by displaying https and activating the little padlock icon in the URL space of web browsers. You can get this almost INSTANTLY*** by using our lightning-fast and automated Domain Control Validation (DCV) process. You'll also have access to a static trust seal (or trust mark) that you can download and display on your website.
Security & Encryption
RapidSSL® is a fully-stable 128/256-bit single-root SSL certificate. This makes it an ideal solution for a very light ecommerce site or a perfect way to safely secure something like a customer login form.
SAN & Multi-Domain Support
Unfortunately, a standard RapidSSL® Certificate does NOT have a SAN or Multi-Domain supported option. However, there is an option to secure multiple sub-domains (i.e. mail.domain.com or server.domain.com) with a RapidSSL Wildcard certificate. If you have the need to secure multiple domains with one certificate (i.e. www.domain.com and www.domain.net), the cheapest solution would be a GeoTrust True BusinessID Multi-Domain (SAN/UCC) certificate.
Mobile & Browser Compatibility
Mobile compatibility is definitely not a strong point of this basic SSL certificate; however, some newer mobile devices & browsers do recognize it by default. If your customers are likely to access your site via a mobile device; such as a cell phone or tablet, you may want to strongly consider a security solution that is more mobile-friendly. We would at least recommend something like a GeoTrust QuickSSL Premium, but there are more solutions available.

With this DV cert, you get to display a static site seal, to show off that your site is protected by this recognized SSL brand. It says "Secured by RapidSSL®" right on it. Static site seals are quick & easy to install, however they are not "clickable" to show additional verification information related to your site. It also does not display any dynamic or real-time data related to your site's security.
With this product, you get a $10,000 warranty. This means that if the site was improperly validated, actually not secured and/or issued to a fraudulent site by this Certificate Authority (CA), etc., the CA would compensate the end user of the site or victim up to $10,000 for any loss or damages incurred. Warranties are geared towards protecting your customers and to establish credibility of the site owner, giving users the confidence they need to make purchases on your site.
With RapidSSL, the name says it all. If you're searching for a simple security solution with a lightning-fast issuance time, look no further than RapidSSL. While not as globally recognized for trust and security as a more premium brand like Symantec, RapidSSL still provides websites with a reputable trust-seal and desired level of encryption strength. This brand is highly sought-after by start-ups, small businesses operating under a limited budget, and light ecommerce websites.
