Dedicated Interface for Reseller and Affiliate Programs
With the new application, the user will get a separate interface when it registers his id for reseller and affiliate programs.
When the user resells any SSL certificate, details of the new owner will automatically get transferred to Rapid SSL for the verification process. The users don’t have to send emails to update their user information.
In addition, the affiliate interface provides real-time data about new users purchasing through the link and how much bonus will get credited to the customer’s account.
Site Lock Management System
For managing the Site Lock services, we crafted two interfaces. One system gets handled by the staff members, and the other is available to the customer.
According to the requirement, if a customer sends a request to the support team to help them in Site Lock operations, the team can create a secure connection with their systems and perform security procedures.
Moreover, we embed custom reporting and analysis tools, which consistently evaluate the data to provide details vulnerability and patch reports.
Further, we integrate all the security APIs, plugins, and testing tools, which every customer can access to scan their website and remove malicious files.

In addition, the staff member gets the feature to utilize SSL tools while configuring it to ensure successful implementation.
Whenever a user buys an SSL certificate from Rapid SSL, they can access all the associated information through a dedicated system.
Using their login id and password, they will have access to update the information, contact customer support, and renew the certificate.
Also, the system will automatically send renewal notifications through mail and SMS before two weeks of expiration. All of its details will be stored in a centralized database to provide efficient services to customers.
Besides this, the customer can handle PKI operations and send certificate signing requests to the SSL vendor.
Customer Management System
