What is an intermediate certificate?
Intermediate certificates provide maximum browser and server coverage to ensure visitors won't receive "invalid SSL" warnings when they visit your site.
Most browsers and servers include one or more of our trusted root certificates, either Go Daddy, Starfield Technologies, or Valicert.
The intermediate certificate bundle "chains" your SSL certificate to our trusted root certificates, letting your certificate secure connections with older browsers that might have only our original Valicert root certificate installed.
Using intermediate certificates does not cause installation, performance, or compatibility issues.
