What do the warranties for SSL certificates mean? What is covered by them?
SSL certificates services include a limited Warranty to provide your site extra assurance that your site is safe to conduct online business.
Warranty is payable to your site visitors who rely on the SSL certificate and who incur losses resulting directly from an online credit card transaction as a result of a mis-issued SSL certificate.
Warranties start at $10,000 (most DV certificates).
Warranties go up to $50,000, $100,000, $250,000 and higher - for OV and EV mostly.
Certification authority will refund you in the event something goes wrong on their end and the website will be hijacked that is why you should feel confident with an SSL certificate.
If anything goes wrong that causes you to lose money, you are covered.
