Domain Validated SSL Certificates for Single Domains
What is a Domain Validated SSL?
We offer options to secure single domains with a domain validated SSL certificate. A Domain Validated SSL certificate only verifies that you are in control of the domain at the time of purchase.
HostGator is pleased to offer you two SSL Certificates options, which will protect your website with 2048-bit signatures and up to 256-bit encryption.
The Positive SSL and Sectigo SSL Certificates are designed to cover a single domain (like example.com) or subdomain (like secure.example.com):
|Positive SSL||Sectigo SSL|
|Address Bar Color|
|Price (1 year)||$39.99*||$99.99|
*The Positive SSL introductory price is $39.99 and renews at $69.99.
Here are the Domain Validated SSL Certificates for single domains that we offer:
Positive SSL Certificate
The Positive SSL certificate is our most affordable option but offers strong protection for your information and includes Sectigo's $10,000 limited warranty. You can purchase the Positive SSL within your Customer Portal's SSL Certificates section.
Customers with a Business or Enterprise hosting plan may request a Positive SSL Certificate at no additional charge by filling out the SSL Order Form within the Customer Portal.
Sectigo SSL Certificate
The Sectigo SSL certificate also protects your data with the same security as the Positive SSL. However, each Sectigo SSL comes with a $250,000 limited warranty against unauthorized transactions to give your visitors that extra measure of reassurance.
Free Positive SSL Certificate
If you have a Linux Hatchling or Baby, or Windows Personal Plan, you may upgrade your hosting plan through your Customer Portal to take advantage of the Free Positive SSL Certificate.
Once you have the Business (for Linux) or Enterprise (for Windows) plan, you can request the Positive SSL certificate directly from your Customer Portal at NO charge. See the following article for the step-by-step instructions:
