Extended Validation CertificatesAn SSL Certificate enables encryption of online transactions and communications. The 6-in-1 SSL Certificate from GlobalWebFX.com offers a new level of simple, cost-effective security service. With many businesses, purchasing all six variations of their domain name to protect their online identity, GlobalWebFX.com’s new 6-in-1 certificate provides a one-step, cost-saving solution.

Customers can purchase one SSL Certificate to protect all six Top Level Domains (TLDs) including .com, .net, .biz, .info, .us and .org. Until now, separate certificates would have to be purchased to protect each domain name. Each domain name secured under the new 6-in-1 SSL must point to the same Web site.

Before this product was available, Web site managers would have to purchase either an SSL Certificate for a single TLD or buy as many as six – creating the potential for security warnings in customers’ Web browsers or high costs for multiple certificates. With this new 6-in-1 SSL Certificate, e-businesses can save up to 54 percent over the cost of purchasing individual certificates.

“GlobalWebFX.com CEO Matthew Shuey said” Our 6-in-1 Secure Certificates are the perfect match for those businesses that have multiple variations of their own Domain Name.

For more information about the new 6-in1 SSL Certificates, visit http://www.globalwebfx.com/secure-certificates.htm
