Sectigo EV SSL is our least expensive Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate, which will protect your website from phishing attacks by displaying your company name directly in the browser’s address bar. These features will bring the highest level of trust to your visitors and will ensure them that your website is not a fraudulent one and that they can confidently enter their user access credentials, personal information, and credit card information on your website.

Having an EV SSL Certificate requires an extensive verification of your company and its owner, in order to confirm that your business is trustworthy. During this process, you will need to submit signed company documents and agreements to the Certificate Authority (CA). Also, your ownership of your domain name will also be verified as a part of this process. It is important for you to make sure that the company’s contact information you enter when creating the CSR matches the ones in public companies listings, such as Yellow Pages or Yellowbook.

The issuance time of the Sectigo EV SSL certificate will be of about 2 to 7 business days. It’s worth waiting this much time, so as you will end up having a highly secured and trusted website, and it is totally worth the effort.

This SSL certificate is compatible with 99.3% of all desktop and mobile browsers come with unlimited server licensing and unlimited reissues. Along with all these benefits, you will also get a dynamic Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA) site seal, which can be put in a preeminent place on your website, and which will ensure your visitors once again that their sensitive information is protected by a highly recognized Certificate Authority. Users will also be able to roll over or click on the SSL seal and see the live date stamp, as well as the name of your company.

We offer a 10% discount when you decide to buy this certificate for 2 years, and 25 days money-back guarantee, in case you decide you want to go with a different SSL Certificate.

Sectigo EV SSL is ideal for an online shop, and for any other website which needs to be well-secured and trusted by its visitors.

    Whenever a client requests an EV certificate I install Comodo EV SSL. It’s one of the cheapest on the market from a brand with an excellent reputation.

    Make sure your paperwork is correct or you’ll have problems during validation. I had a small issue with my documents but managed it in the end.

    I really wanted to have the green bar for my small business website, so made sure that all my paperwork is up to date. I was a bit anxious, but the validation was successful and took less than two days.

    Last year I had a Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV, but since it’s no longer available, I opted for this certificate. Got it issued in 2 days – it looks like passing Extended Validation the second time is a much easier 🙂

Here is a list with the most common questions our customers have when buying One Domain SSL Certificates with Extended Validation:

The Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate is the best choice if you want to build customer relationships based on security and trust. This certificate is issued only after the Certificate Authority (CA) performed an extensive verification of your company and its owner, confirming that your business is trustworthy. The validation process can take a few business days. But if you keep your company’s records up to date, the Extended Validation SSL certificate will be issued quickly, confirming that your company owns the website.

This type of SSL certificate significantly enhances the trust level of your website. Extended Validation certificates are highly effective in providing protection against phishing attacks because they make your clients feel safer while performing transactions and this fact will definitely boost your conversions. This is why Extended Validation certificates are considered the most reputable SSL Certificates for your website.

ev2ev1You can check if you have an Extended Validation SSL Certificate by looking at the attributes of your SSL Certificate. Please open the two screenshots on the right in order to see where you can find the information about the validation type of your SSL Certificate.

Different SSL Certificate brands have different Extended Validation procedures. Please read the section that applies to your SSL Certificate brand below.

DigiCert (including Thawte & GeoTrust)

The validation team would send you an agreement by email, during the verification process. Then the certificate authority will work on validating the legal existence of your company via local public databases, as a part of the Extended Validation process. This may take between 1-3 working days. Please wait until one of the certificate authority representatives contacts you about any additional information that they may need you to provide them.

partner-order-idIf you do not hear from the Certificate Authority representatives in the 5-7 days, then please call +1 (520) 477-3152 (Ext 2) to check the status of your SSL Certificate with the Certificate Authority. Please note that Thawte, GeoTrust, DigiCert are all owned by DigiCert, and they all have the same phone number provided above.  When you talk to them, you will need to provide the “Partner Order ID”, which you can find on the details page of your SSL Certificate inside your SSL Dragon account. See the screenshot on the right.


Please send the necessary forms described below to Sectigo by opening a ticket with Sectigo Validation Center at Click on “Submit a ticket”, select Validation Department, and submit your request. Please mention your “Partner Order ID” in your message.

partner-order-idYou can find your “Partner Order ID” on the details page of your SSL Certificate inside your SSL Dragon account. See the screenshot on the right.

I. New Orders

STEP 1: Agreement signing
In a few hours after the order is placed, you will receive an email from Sectigo with a click-through link called the “Validation Manager link“.
Please use this click-through link to access the Validation form and sign the agreement using a digital signature and upload it directly to Sectigo.

If you didn’t receive the email with the link and/or can’t sign the agreement digitally, please fill these 2 forms  – Certificate Request Form and EV SSL Subscriber Agreement – and send them to Sectigo (see above instructions).

You can also download the Sectigo EV forms from their knowledge-base.

STEP 2: Business Validation
To pass Business validation, you may have to provide an official registration document, such as Business License, Article of Incorporation, and or Registration application.
Here are the BV options:

A. No paperwork. Your company’s legal existence will be checked via public government database using your company name and your unique Registration/Identification number OR via verified public 3rd party databases, such as GLEIF, Duns & Bradstreet, Hoovers, Companies House GOV.UK.

B. Paperwork. Your company will be verified using:

  • an official registration document, such as Articles of Incorporation, Government Issued Business License, or
  • a copy of a recent: company bank statement, company phone bill, or major company utility bill  (i.e. power bill, water bill, etc.).

STEP 3: Callback process
The last step is a callback process called Phone Validation. Sectigo will call you and asks to confirm your name and order to validate the official company’s phone number.
Below are the 4 callback options. You don’t have to do all four things from below. Doing just one of them will be enough.

A. Yellow Pages Databases. Sectigo verifies your phone number via public Yellow pages Databases.

B. DUNS. The second way is to provide your DUNS number to Sectigo. You can get your company’s DUNS number from this website: If Sectigo gets back to you and says that your DUNS listing does not contain a phone number, then you need to contact Dun & Bradstreet (at and ask them to “add your company’s phone number to their business directory and on the report”.

C. Local phone database. If you don’t have a DUNS number, then the other thing you can do is to provide your company’s registration number for Sectigo to check your company with your country’s governmental directories (e.g.: Corporation Division, Companies House, Department of State, etc). Please note that Sectigo will be looking to see your company’s phone number listed there as well. Not all governmental directories have the companies’ phone numbers. If the governmental directory allows you to call them, email them, or use their website to add your phone number, then please go ahead and do that.

D. Legal OpinionIf the above two options (2.1 and 2.2) don’t work for you, then the third and last option to validate your phone number is to ask a CPA (Certified Public Accountant), or a Latin Notary, or an Attorney (Lawyer) to write, sign and send a letter to Sectigo where they confirm your company name, address and phone number. You can find the sample letters below:

– Sample Accountant Letter
– Sample Legal Opinion Letter

II. Renewal/Reissue Orders

For reissues and renewal order, instead of Step 1 and 2, you must contact Sectigo Validation Center at Click on “Submit a ticket”, or choose Live Chat, select Validation Department and submit the following request (please replace [] fields with the corresponding info):

Reason for the ticket: Validation
Order number: [Your Partner Order ID]
Subject: Extended Validation 

Dear Sectigo!
Please validate order [Partner Order ID] using the company name [Your Company Name], with [Registration/ID number] and [DUNS number].

Sectigo will then contact you for Step 3 or any updates of Step 1 or 2 described above.


You have to pass the Extended Validation when you buy a new or reissue/renew an EV SSL Certificate.

At the same time, the process of completing the Extended Validation is easier the following years, so as the Certificate Authority has more information about your company in their system, based on your previous EV SSL Certificates requests.
Please check the Renew/Reissue EV instructions.

To add your Company Name and TAX/VAT number, you have to login into your SSL Dragon Account and follow these steps:

  1. Click on the “Hello, *Your Name*” button on the right top side of your account dashboard and select “Edit Account Settings”;
  2. On the ‘My Details’ page, you will find the ‘Company Name’ and ‘Company TAX/VAT ID’ field;
  3. Fill in these fields with the necessary information then click on ’Save Changes’. 

After you perform the above steps, your SSL Dragon account and all your invoices will be automatically updated with this information.
