HostPapa SSL uses up to 256-bit data encryption to convert data into virtually impenetrable code that is safe from hackers and identity thieves.
When you need an SSL certificate, you need it fast. HostPapa will validate your domain registration and your GlobalSign Secure SSL Certificate can be issued within minutes.+
Don’t worry. A GlobalSign SSL certificate is compatible with over 99% of web browsers, ensuring encryption will work for just about every browser used to view your site.
If your website is hosted with HostPapa, your new SSL certificate will be automatically installed after you complete the validation process.
GlobalSign SSL certificates from HostPapa do more than offer state-of-the-art data encryption. When you purchase an SSL certificate, a strict process will be followed to validate your business credentials. Once validation is complete, your website will be equipped with the trusted signs of a secure site, including “https” in your website address and a closed padlock. You’ll have the credibility and security required to turn site visitors into paying customers.
SSL certificates assure your customers and website visitors that any data they enter on your website is secure, encrypted, and protected. HostPapa has partnered with Globalsign, a leading Internet trust service provider, to offer SSL certificates to our customers.
HostPapa offers two levels of SSL security:
SSL security seal
“https” domain protection?
Unlimited server licences?
256-bit data encryption?
2048-bit future proof issuing authority?
99.9% browser recognition
Mobile device support
Secures www and non-www versions of a domain
Upon receipt of all validation documentation, this is the time required to process and issue an SSL certificate. The actual time will vary, based on the level and amount of activities it takes to verify all information.
This is one of the three visual signs of security that comes with all HostPapa SSL Certificates. When protected by an active SSL certificate, most address bars will display the closed padlock icon. Your customers will be looking for this trusted symbol of website security before they enter any information. Make sure it’s there.
This is one of the three visual signs of security that comes with all HostPapa SSL Certificates. Generally, web addresses start with 'http://www.' But when protected by an active SSL certificate, the web address starts with 'https://www.' This clearly indicates a secure website.
Unlimited SSL server licences allow a single SSL Certificate to provide protection across an unlimited number of servers without incurring additional per machine licences.
Unlimited SSL server liscencing will be of particular interest to website operators who:
Differentiate your website from the competition by offering an extra visual assurance for customers that your site is safe and credible - turn your browser address bar green when protected.
Locks down data with a 256-bit key. Turns data into virtually impenetrable code that is safe from identity theft.
We offer and support 2048-bit SSL certificates. To get a 2048-bit SSL certificate, you need to create and submit a 2048-bit certificate signing request (CSR) with your order.
This certificate is issued only after verifying/confirming the registrant or person who registered the domain name.
In case of a server crash/renewal or if you have lost your private key, you can replace your certificate for free. The new certificate will have the same expiration date as the previous one.

Make sure you fully understand the importance of an SSL certificate. Read on for answers to some of your most frequently asked questions.
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. An SSL certificate offers your website and your customers an added layer of protection in two key ways. First, an SSL certificate will authenticate your website’s identity, assuring your customers you are who you say you are. It will also encrypt the information visitors enter on your site, keeping it safe during transmission and storage. If you have a GlobalSign SSL certificate from HostPapa on your site, your customers know they can fully trust you to take care of their data.
Having an SSL certificate is critical for your online reputation. It lets your website visitors know they can trust you – that you value their privacy and are making the extra effort to ensure all their data is encrypted during transmission from their computer to yours. A GlobalSign SSL certificate from HostPapa will protect all customer information you collect, including names, addresses, passwords, and credit card numbers.
An SSL certificate is the standard for web security. You will be required to have one if you plan to accept credit cards or other payment options on your site. In other words: if you are running an online business, you will be required to have an SSL certificate.
Once a GlobalSign SSL certificate has been purchased, installed, and is active on your website, visitors will be able to see a number of trusted signs that your site is secure. When visitors enter an SSL-protected page on your website, they will see a locked padlock and the “https” in their browser address bar. You will also have the option (recommended!) to add a security seal on your web pages. This seal will clearly communicate that your website has been verified and is secure. A visitor may click on this SSL seal to view the details and status of your website’s SSL certificate.
Ideally, any website that accepts or transmits sensitive information should be protected by SSL. These include, but are not limited to:
HostPapa has partnered with GlobalSign to offer our customers a highly acclaimed name brand SSL certificate. Your SSL certificate will be accepted by 99% of all browsers on the market today, ensuring your visitors will not be disappointed. This high-level security layer offers up to 256-bit encryption and website verification – giving your customers complete confidence in your security reputation.
HostPapa’s SSL certificates also cost less than many others on the market. And, of course, they’re all backed by HostPapa’s reliable 24/7 support!
HostPapa offers two SSL options: a single SSL, and a Wildcard SSL. A single SSL is all you need if you’re looking to secure 1 domain only – no subdomains. A Wildcard SSL is an excellent option if you have subdomains, as it will actually secure and protect unlimited subdomains.
If you have further questions about your SSL requirements, please contact HostPapa support by opening a support ticket via your HostPapa dashboard.
It takes a few minutes to activate your SSL certificate. After your order has been completed, the software will authenticate and verify your website. When the SSL certificate is issued, it will be installed automatically and your website will then be secure!
A GlobalSign Wildcard SSL certificate from HostPapa will secure unlimited subdomains. A Wildcard SSL certificate is a great way to protect multiple subdomains – with just one certificate to manage, you’ll save time and money! Please note that all subdomains must be under the same domain name in order to be protected by one Wildcard certificate.
SSL certificates from HostPapa are for single domains only. A single SSL certificate will secure pages on one domain; a Wildcard SSL certificate will secure unlimited subdomains, as long as they all fall under one domain name.
We provide a $1,000 USD warranty on all SSL certificates purchased through HostPapa. This warranty is designed to protect the end user (your website customer or visitor), in the unlikely event that an SSL is mis-issued. If a customer relies on a mis-issued SSL certificate's information, and suffers financial loss because of it, this warranty will come into play.
In effect, this is added insurance for you – it will cover claims made by the customer against the certificate issuer.
Please note: To date, this warranty has never been used against any SSL certificate issuer. Security and accuracy are always top priority for both GlobalSign and HostPapa.
SSL certificates purchased from HostPapa are valid for between 1 and 2 years, depending on the option you choose when you sign up.
Yes. A private SSL certificate requires its own dedicated IP address. You may purchase a dedicated IP at the same time as you purchase your SSL certificate – there will be an option to do so on the secure order form. You may also purchase a dedicated IP address at any time from your HostPapa dashboard.
Purchasing a dedicated IP address means the IP address of your website will change. Your DNS will need to propagate (update) across the Internet, a process which can take up to 8 hours. Some visitors will be able to view your website at the new IP address right away, but others might not before propagation is complete.
Keep this in mind as you plan when you’ll be switching to a dedicated IP – you don’t want customers to struggle to find you in the middle of a major promotion!
No. Currently, cPanel has a technical limitation of one SSL certificate (and one dedicated IP) per cPanel account. If you need more than one SSL certificate (for a different domain or a subdomain), you have a couple of options:
For assistance, please do not hesitate to contact HostPapa support by opening a ticket via your HostPapa dashboard.
No. Each IP address can only be associated with one SSL certificate. Please note, though, that multiple dedicated IP addresses (and multiple SSL certificates) may be assigned to a single web server.
Yes. If you have purchased an SSL certificate elsewhere, you may use it with a HostPapa IP address and a HostPapa hosting account. You may choose to transfer the SSL certificate to HostPapa, but it is not required.
If you have further questions, please open a support ticket via your HostPapa dashboard.
