Differences between a cPanel certificate and a traditional CA-issued certificate

Last modified: Tuesday November 28th, 2023

This article explains the differences between cPanel SSL certificates and certificates provided by traditional CA (certificate authority) providers.

What is a cPanel SSL certificate?

cPanel SSL certificates are free and come with Beehosting plans automatically. It is an entry-level SSL certificate that provides you with the basic encryption that needs for safety website.

However, keep in mind that for a free certificate, there is no brand support and no warranties. A free certificate is consigned only to make your site compliant with web browsers.

Free cPanel SSL certificates may be enough for smaller sites that do not receive a lot of traffic or do not obtain customer information. But, if you have a more serious website with e-commerce and customer logins, we strongly recommend a more serious SSL.

What is a traditional CA-issued SSL certificate?

Traditional CA-issued certificates, like SSL from DigiCert, GeoTrust, and RapidSSL, offer customers more features than the free certificate. The levels of encryption and support can be much higher, and this ultimately provides maximum security for website visitors.

If you ever need assistance traditional CA provides live support. Depending on the level of certificate you purchase, traditional CA-issued certificates are equipped with warranties that protect your visitors and site owners should any damage be done under the certificate.
