PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION


The Thawte® SSL web server certificate provides protection for all websites, that require registration. It confirms and signals your identity and therefore the trustworthiness of your website to employees, business partners and customers.

As soon as visitors click on the Thawte® Trusted Site Seal or view the certificate details in their browser, your organisation’s name appears and makes it absolutely clear that Thawte®, an organisation that can be trusted, has checked the authenticity of your website. For this HTTPS cetrificate comprehensive authentification procedures verify domain name and domain owner, amongst other things by checking telephone and bank details and by verifying the registration in the commercial register.

Depending on the browser performance of the user and the crypto-algorithms installed on your web server, an SSL web server certificate offers encryption of 256, 128, 56 or 40 bit SSL. The encryption is thus comparable with an Extended Validation (EV) certificate, but without the immediately visible and effective address bar. Additionally, with an SSL web server certificate you are insured against misuse for up to $ 250,000.

You can configure your SSL certificates conveniently via the customer menu (KCM). Here you will also find more information on extending your certificate and on ordering further certificates via ticket system. In addition to the protection of a domain or sub-domain over a period from 1 to 3 years, a Thawte® SSL web server certificate also gives you the option to secure and insure up to 4 further domain names (SAN) in addition to your main domain. SAN domains (“Subject Alternative Names”) are charged on top of the existing SSL web server certificate and must be stated just like the contract duration already while ordering the certificate.

How and where you use your SSL web server certificates is up to you. You can use them for existing webhosting packages, for virtual and dedicated servers at Keyweb, but you can also use them at other internet service providers.
