At Dynalogical, we understand that online security is crucial in this digitized world. To better secure your website and gain the trust of your visitors, we offer SSL certificates. In this article, we will discuss exactly what these SSL certificates mean, why they are so important and how you can obtain one from Dynalogical for your website.
What is an SSL certificate?
SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and is a technology that provides a secure connection between the Web server and your visitors’ browsers. SSL certificates act as a digital passport, confirming the identity of your website and its web server.
When a website has a valid SSL certificate, the traffic between the server and the visitor is encrypted. This means that sensitive information, such as passwords, credit card information and personal data, remains protected from hackers and other malicious parties.
Why is an SSL certificate important?
- SSL certificates are essential for protecting sensitive information processed on your website. By encrypting the data, you ensure that it cannot be intercepted by cybercriminals.
Building trust with visitors
- Visitors have more confidence in websites secured with SSL certificates. They see that their data is protected, which increases trust in your brand and your online presence.
Improved SEO ranking
- Search engines such as Google prefer websites with an SSL certificate, resulting in better visibility and higher ranking in search results.
Complying with regulations
- Many industries and regions require websites to meet certain security standards, such as the General Data Protection Regulation(AVG) in the European Union. An SSL certificate helps you comply with these standards and avoid potential penalties.

How do you obtain an SSL certificate from Dynalogical?
Purchase a service
With Dynalogical, you can purchase a variety of services. For example, we can take care of your hosting, manage your domain names or create a complete website for you. Upon delivery of 1 of these products, you will be assigned a standard SSL certificate by us. This one is free and does not require you to do anything. If you want to choose from one of our extensive SSL certificates yourself, you have come to the right place for that too.
Choosing the right SSL certificate
At Dynalogical, we offer different types of SSL certificates depending on your needs and budget. The three most common types are:
- Domain Validation (DV): This is the default free type of SSL certificate. It verifies only the domain name and is ideal for small websites and blogs that do not handle sensitive information.
- Organization Validation (OV): This type of SSL certificate verifies not only the domain name, but also the organization behind the website. This is suitable for companies that want to add an extra layer of trust.
- Extended Validation (EV): This is the most extensive and costly type of SSL certificate. It verifies the company’s domain name, organization and physical location. EV certificates are often used by large companies, banks and e-commerce websites that want to project a high level of trust.
Installing and configuring the SSL certificate on your web server
After you specify which SSL certificate you want installed on your website, we will install the SSL certificate on your new Dynalogical web server. Our experienced support team is here to answer your questions and resolve any issues quickly.
Updating your website and internal links to HTTPS
After the SSL certificate is installed, we configure your website to use the HTTPS protocol. This includes updating internal links, redirecting HTTP traffic to HTTPS and checking for mixed content (elements of your website that are still loaded via HTTP).
Testing and monitoring your SSL configuration
At Dynalogical, we regularly test and monitor the status and validity of your SSL certificate. It is important to check the validity of your SSL certificate with some regularity and renew it before it expires to avoid downtime and security risks.
Using an SSL certificate is essential for securing your website and building trust with your visitors. By partnering with Dynalogical and choosing our SSL certificates, you reap the benefits of security, trust and SEO. Our dedicated team of experts is here to support you every step of the way.
