Add SSL security to your site so your visitors don’t see this Google Chrome warning.
In July 2018 Google Chrome made it official: If your site doesn’t have a security certificate, visitors will see this warning. Securing your website with an SSL certificate is not only the right thing to do for your users, it’s also great for boosting search rankings and delivering more traffic to your site.
Website Add-Ons That Require an SSL Certificate to Function Properly
An SSL certificate creates a secure tunnel through which information including usernames, passwords, credit card numbers and more can safely pass.
First, the SSL Handshake
When a site visitor enters a secure area, your SSL Certificate establishes an encrypted connection with the visitor’s browser.
Security Indicators Appear
A padlock icon and https:// prefix appears in the status bar of the visitor’s browser to show the information they’ve entered is safe.
Information Is Encrypted
All information passing to and from the website is scrambled by 2048-bit encryption that is virtually unbreakable by hackers.

Frequently Asked Questions
I already purchased an SSL Certificate from another provider, can I use this one instead?
Yes! Though we do offer and recommend our in-house SSL certificates, you may instead use one provided by a third-party. You can install your own certificate through your website’s cPanel dashboard (Admin area > Developers > cPanel Dashboard). Once you have successfully installed your own certificate, simply submit a support ticket requesting that we enable the settings necessary for your website to route traffic to HTTPS.
There is no charge if you purchase and install your third-party SSL certificate on your own. Please note that Brilliant Directories cannot provide support for the self-installation of third-party SSL certificates. However, our Support Team is able to assist with any issues you may encounter with the Managed SSL Security add-on purchased directly through Brilliant Directories.
Can I use Brilliant Directories credits to purchase Managed SSL Security?
Yes, credits may be used to purchase Managed SSL Security.
Can I transfer my SSL certificate if I change my domain name?
Yes. With the Managed SSL Security add-on, you will be prompted to install the new SSL certificate automatically during the domain-change process.
