What is SSL?

SSL Certificates are fundamental to internet security. They are used to establish an encrypted connection and allow data to be transmitted securely between a browser or user’s computer and a server or website.

  • Establishes a secure connection between a browser and a server
  • Encrypts communication to protect sensitive information your customers provide to you
  • Places a padlock next to your web address in the browser
  • Authenticates an organization’s identity

Standard SSL (Domain Validated) Certificates are the easiest and most common type of SSL certificate. OV and EV Certificates also authenticate the identity of the company or organization that holds the certificate providing more trust to end users.

Help Me Choose The Right Type of Certificate

Domain Validation (DV)

  • Enhanced validation including authenticating the identity of the applicant
  • Issued within one day
  • Maintains browser compliance

Ideal for more sensitive webpages such as login pages

Think of OV like getting a driver’s license—more hoops to jump through than a library card but more trusted as a form of identification.

Extended Validation (EV)
  • Standards-based approach to authentication, representing the highest level of authentication for SSL Certificates
  • Typically issued within 1-3 days
  • Maintains browser and other industry compliance

deal for sensitive webpages including ecommerce, online banking, account signups

Think of EV like getting a passport—much more stringent processes, longer lead times and more verification of who you are than with a library card or driver’s license. Recognized internationally as the most trusted way to verify your identity.
