What is a Web Certificate?

A web certificate is a 256-bit SSL security tool, which enables e-commerce or other secure communications on the Web. You can purchase one from at a significant discount from our competitors. Domain Name Com offers 256-bit SSL certificates for only $44.95 which is more 3 times less than the cheapest alternative from Verisign ($149.00) and way less than GeoTrust.

As used in SSL transactions, a web certificate provides the following:

Confirmation of Identity

The party receiving the information (i.e. the party controlling the server) is the party to whom the communication is intended (i.e. not some wily imposter).


The user's information will not be intercepted and interpreted (by some wily eavesdropper) between the user's browser and the server.

The assurances obtained by Web Certificates are a necessity for all e-commerce implementations and any communication in which confidential information is exchanged. Internet browsers can rest assured that their communications are secured by a properly authenticated web certificate as evidenced by the appearance of a little padlock in the frame of their Internet browser.

Technically, a web certificate is a statement digitally signed by a Certification Authority (CA) that uses a properly authenticated Private Key/Public Key pair to bind a public key to an identity. This provides independent confirmation of the identity of an entity. More formally, a certificate is a computer-based record which:

bullet Identifies the Certification Authority issuing it
bullet Names, identifies, or otherwise describes an attribute of the subscriber
bullet Contains the subscriber's public key
bullet Contains the digital signature of the CA issuing it
bullet Provides a date range over which the certificate is valid

To obtain a web certificate, a Private Key/Public Key Pair must be generated on the server and then authenticated by a Certificate Authority (CA), which has the requisite recognition in the browser software. For a detailed discussion of the technology behind web certificates see the white papers in the Partner Papers section available on this site.
