Assurance & Authentication
Since a RapidSSL certificate is just domain validated, it can be issued to your site in mere minutes. This is one of our quickest SSL options and our 30 day trial ensures you can get familiar with the process at no cost to you. The Certification Authority only needs to validate that you actually own the domain you wish to secure.
Security & Encryption
This free RapidSSL® is a fully-stable 128/256-bit single-root SSL certificate, making it an ideal temporary solution for a very light ecommerce site or a customer login form.
SAN & Multi-Domain Support
Unfortunately, RapidSSL does not support multiple domains on one SSL certificate, so this free option is not available for more than one domain.
Mobile & Browser Compatibility
Mobile compatibility isn’t the strongest feature of this certificate. But you can try it out for FREE for 30 days and see what you think. Ultimately, if your customers access your site via mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.), we would recommend a more premium, yet low-cost, DV cert like the Thawte SSL 123.

With this certificate, you will be able to display the recognized "Secured by RapidSSL®" static site seal on your website for 30 days at no charge. These static site seals are quick & easy to install, but they are not “clickable.” This means that they don’t show any additional verification information related to your site. It also does not display any real-time data related to your website’s security.
Since this is a FREE option, a warranty is not applicable. However, a full RapidSSL certificate does come with a $10,000 warranty. We also offer a 30 day money-back guarantee on all of our SSL certificates.
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.
