What is the difference between a Deluxe and a Standard SSL Web Server Certificate?
The primary difference between a Deluxe SSL certificate and a Standard SSL certificate is the validation level and issuance speed. When you consider an SSL certificate, consider the size and type of your business, your budget, and whether or not you prefer quick certificate issuance to a more thorough validation process.
|Deluxe Certificate - Corporate||Deluxe Certificate - Individual/Sole Proprietor||Standard SSL Certificate|
|Authentication Process||Domain control verification, corporate identity, fraud||Domain control verification, individual identity, fraud screening||Domain control verification, fraud screening|
|Issuance Speed||2-5 business days||2-5 business days||Immediate|
|Name in Certificate "O" Field||Company name||Requestor name||website's common name|
|Encryption Level*||Up to 256 bit||Up to 256 bit||Up to 256 bit|
If you want a higher assurance certificate but are in a country not supported for Premium Extended Validation certificates, consider a Deluxe certificate. Additionally, if you need an SSL certificate for your Intel vPro server, you must use a Deluxe certificate.
* The encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by a visitor's Web browser and site's Web server. For example, the combination of a Firefox browser and an Apache server normally enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with certificates. This means that depending on the browser and server that combine to establish the secure connection through a SSL certificate, the encryption strength of the secure connection may be 40, 56, 128, or 256 bit.
