Question & answer time – SSL style 🔒

Why do you use Sectigo CA for SSL certificates?

Having worked with a range of CAs over the years, Sectigo have been the stand-out in providing quality service, quick issuance and trust-worthy certificates. Unlike other CAs, they’re security-focused.

Does my Hosting already include Let's Encrypt SSL?

If it’s with LEOPARD.host, absolutely! You have free Domain Validated (DV) wildcard coverage of your hosted domain name/s with us.

Are you elsewhere? Try using this SSL Checker to make sure your domain has all green padlocks, with no errors showing. Remember that our team are happy to help explain this, even if you’re not with us!

How are your prices so competitive? Corner cutting?

A long-term relationship with Sectigo allows us to price our certificates very reasonably, and with our systems integrated with theirs, the time our staff need to invest is minimal. This helps us keep your SSL costs low without cutting any corners!

Are there refunds on SSL certs that were never issued?

Potentially. It depends on a range of factors, and ultimately is up to Sectigo to approve. If your certificate was never issued, you can make a request to our Billing team and they’ll let you know.

What's the process for EV certificate issuance?

You’ll need a DUNS number, as well as accurate contact details on your website (inc. ACN, phone number, legal address) AND against your DUNS number (Dun & Bradstreet) and ASIC corporation details. A form will be sent to you, and Sectigo will then review the order.

Following your 1st EV SSL, all subsequent issues are far simpler unless your details change (in which case, be sure to update your DUNS number, website, etc, BEFORE ordering the renewal).

Domain and Extended Validation certs (DV vs EV)

Most websites happily operate under cheap/free DV SSL Certificates from Certificate Authorities such as Let’s Encrypt (such as we include for free with our Hosting plans). They’re issued in under 5 minutes, and can be automatically renewed with ease.

Some websites, mostly those heavily involved with eCommerce or needing to strengthen their branding/presence and prove authenticity of their website (ie. a defence against imitation websites) may opt for an EV SSL. Both our website and my.LEOPARD system are both covered by EV SSLs that we renew annually.

EV’s Extended Validation process does mean that it can take a while for your certificate to be issued (or not in exceptional circumstances), so please ensure you budget 1-2 weeks if you’re able to work on any required tasks once a day.

Unsure which SSL’s for you? We’re here to help!

I haven't seen the approval email yet - what gives?

During the configuration process, you’ll be able to choose an email for verification or to use an HTTP verification method (file upload). If you haven’t seen the email, please contact our Support team.

How can I resolve an SSL/TLS problem that I'm having?

Our team have direct contacts at Sectigo to keep issues to a minimum and impact times as low as possible. Please reach out to our Support team and we’ll get your problem fixed up quick-smart!
