SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificates

All ecommerce websites must have an SSL certificate to ensure safe credit card transactions through their sites. Learn more about Volusion SSL Certificates and let your customers shop with confidence.

For frequently asked questons about SSL certificates, see How to Verify Your SSL Purchase. For information about configuring your clickable SSL seal, see SSL Seals.

Important Information

When you purchase an SSL from Volusion, there is no installation fee and the SSL will be installed to your domain within 3-5 business days. The SSL will be active only if your domain name is live on your store. To learn more about making your site live on the domain name, see DNS (Domain Name System) Settings.

If you purchased a third-party SSL, you will need to submit a ticket to Billing through (choose Billing from the Category menu) and request a CSR (Certificate Signing Request). Complete the requested information and return to Billing so Volusion can provide you the CSR certificate necessary to install your third-party SSL.

There will be a fee of $99 to install the certificate to your store's server. Please acknowledge and consent to this fee in your ticket to speed processing time. Note that Volusion can import all third-party SSL certificates for the $99 transfer-in fee except for wildcard or multiple-domain / SAN certificates.

There is no access to install a certificate yourself.

Once your SSL is installed on your store, your Admin Area will use https rather than http, as will your checkout page on the storefront. The "s" in "https" means your domain is secure and is used on pages where personal information (such as credit card numbers) is entered.
