The Difference Between Lifetime SSL and Comodo PositiveSSL

The Lifetime SSL Certificate Activation plan comes at a one-off price and lasts for unlimited time. It’s a standard security certification that gets renewed automatically and for free of charge.

The Comodo PositiveSSL Certificate plan comes at an annual fee and provides additional tools for your website security. Comodo PositiveSSL also offers a Relying Party Warranty, which guarantees compensation if the Secure Sockets Layer protection fails.

Both security products provide strong encryption for the connection between your website and your visitors. However, they each come with slightly different features. For example, the Comodo PositiveSSL Certificate plan includes a technical support team, SSL certificate management tools, and a Comodo Secure site seal, while the Lifetime SSL Certificate plan does not.

Why Do You Need an SSL Certificate?

Build Trust

Aside from the additional HTTPS in the website’s address bar, our SSL Certificates also place a padlock in your URL, showing visitors that your website uses an SSL service. For online businesses, this automatically builds trust, as your customers will know their data will be safe on your site.

Build Trust

Increase Your Ranking on Google

Web security is one of Google’s primary ranking factors. An SSL certificate provides a working HTTPS prefix at the start of a secured site’s URL, showing the search engine that the website uses data encryption to protect sensitive information. This encourages Google to display SSL-certified websites higher on search results, increasing your organic traffic.

Comply with PCI DSS Standards

Online businesses that offer digital payment options and deal with visitors’ credentials must comply with PCI Security Standards, which include SSL certification. By not providing reliable security, your business website would be putting your visitors at risk and not meeting the required regulations.

Secure Client Data

Our SSL Certificates use up to 256-bit encryption, which is industry-standard for data protection. This kind of encryption level ensures that all private information shared between you and your visitors is secure from prying eyes and unwanted parties.

How SSL Certificates Work

An SSL certificate creates a secure internet passageway between your visitors and your website. It is non-decryptable by anyone unauthorized, keeping all login credentials, personal information, and credit card data safe from hackers and thieves.

01

Establishing a Connection

When a visitor tries to access your website, their browser requests the website’s identity. Your website will be changed from HTTP to HTTPS once the SSL certificate is set up, showing the browser the connection will be secure. If the visitor’s browser recognizes and approves the SSL certificate authority, it will validate your website as safe and request to create a secure and encrypted connection.

02

Data Encryption

Once a secure connection is created, all data transferred between the visitor’s browser and your website will be encrypted using 256-bit encryption. Only the approved parties (the visitor’s browser and your website) will have the SSL encryption key, allowing safe and secure decryption.

03

Visual Indicators

A website with an SSL certification has multiple visual indicators that visitors can recognize right away. The website’s URL will contain a padlock icon and an HTTPS prefix, indicating that the website is secure. Depending on the SSL certificate, you can also display a site seal to increase trustworthiness.

SSL Certificates FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about our SSL certificates and plans.

An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) or TLS (Transport Layer Security) is a security protocol issued by a certificate authority to a website. Its purpose is to encrypt the connection between the site and the webserver/browser to prevent unauthorized parties from accessing or seeing it.

Apart from the encryption and web security benefits that come with SSL certificates, they also affect brand trust and SEO ranking.

Search engines and users prefer public-facing websites with SSL certificates as they signal the organization’s commitment to website security measures. It is a mandatory safety protocol that both users and search engines expect to see.

The best way to see whether your website is protected by an SSL certificate is to check if the browser’s address bar displays a padlock icon before your domain name. If it does, you can rest assured that an SSL certificate secures your site.

Depending on the validation level, there are three types of SSL/TLS certificates:

Domain Validation (DV SSL certificate) – the most common SSL certificate for smaller websites. In Domain Validation, the certificate authority will only ask you to verify your domain ownership via email, phone, or DNS record.

Organization Validation (OV SSL certificate) – SSL certificates with a medium level of validation. The certificate authority usually asks for documentation to verify the webmaster’s site, organization name, contact information, and address.

Extended Validation (EV SSL certificate) – these SSL certificates offer the highest level of validation. With EV SSL certificates, the certificate authority will conduct extensive background checks on the respective owners to verify their website and organization.

Besides validation level, there are also types of SSL/TLS certificates based on the number of websites they can protect:

Single Domain SSL Certificate – protects a single domain and its subdirectories.

Wildcard SSL Certificates – a wildcard certificate that covers a single domain and its multiple subdomains.

Multi-Domain SSL Certificates – secures multiple domains unrelated to each other, as listed in the Certificate Signing Request (CSR).

To choose the right SSL certificate, you must look at your website’s purpose and how much sensitive data will be handled on it.

In reality, all types of SSL/TLS protection provide the same encryption level. However, some entities may benefit more from higher levels of validation as they can offer better proof of legitimacy to their visitors.

For blogs and personal websites, a single SSL certificate with Domain Validation (DV) will suffice. On the other hand, Organization Validation (OV) SSL certificates are better for medium-sized enterprises.

Websites that handle extensive amounts of sensitive data, such as banks or government sites, will need Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates. They’ll ensure that visitors feel completely safe providing their sensitive information, as the organizations with EV SSL certification go through a more extensive validation process.

If you purchase Premium or Business Shared hosting Cloud hosting, or WordPress hosting from Hostinger, you’ll get a free SSL/TLS certificate as one of the features. This is a great option for website owners looking to sign up with a new web hosting provider while sorting out their SSL/TLS certification.

Whether you choose the Lifetime SSL Certificate or the Comodo PositiveSSL Certificate plan, both certificates will become active within minutes of you finalizing the purchase.

If you have questions about your SSL certificate purchase, feel free to contact our 24/7 customer success team.

All of our SSL Certificates come with an automatic renewal feature, so you won’t have to purchase another plan manually.

If you buy the Lifetime SSL Certificate plan, it will be automatically renewed by Hostinger free of charge. The auto-renewal setting is also available for the Comodo PositiveSSL plan, and you’ll be automatically billed the annual SSL certificate price.

Website security is an important ranking factor for Google. Meaning, your website has a much higher chance of appearing at the top of the search results if it’s secured by an SSL/TLS certificate.
