Business Validation SSL Certificates

Business Validation SSL

The Business Validation SSL Certificate (BV SSL), also called Organization Validation SSL certificate(OV SSL), is recommended if you have an e-commerce website that is a registered business. Besides the domain validation performed through e-mail, you will have to provide company documentation to receive business authentication. During this authentication process, the Certificate Authority (CA) will verify if your business is carried out by a legitimate, good faith company operating at the provided location. Since the validation is done manually and involves paperwork, you will receive your Business Validation SSL Certificate/Organization Validation SSL within 1-3 business days. After receiving Business Validation/Organization Validation, the green “https” and padlock icon will be displayed on your website’s address bar. These signs will make customers more willing to entrust you their personal and financial information. Yet, if your website purpose is to perform large sales, offer specific products/services or execute financial transactions, you should consider buying our Extended Validation (EV) certificate. This type of SSL certificate will activate the green address bar and will give your site a higher level of trust than a BV SSL/OV SSL.
