Sectigo InstantSSL Premium is a great solution if you need a Business Validated (BV) certificate to secure one single domain (both with and without “www”) for your business website. It provides up to 258 bit encryption for every user connecting to your website, offering more trust and reliability.

So as it involves company documents verification, the business validation process is completed in 1 or 2 days after the purchase. The Certificate Authority (CA) needs to make sure that your company is trustworthy and operates at the provided location. After that, the Certificate Authority (CA) issues the certificate to you, which you can install on your website immediately.

After the SSL installation process is completed, your website will display the following distinctive signs of a secured website: instead of the old gray “HTTP”, the “HTTPS” will be displayed in the address bar next to the padlock icon. You will also receive a dynamic site seal from Sectigo (formerly Comodo CA), which, placed in a visible spot on your website, will confirm your visitors that your business has been verified by a highly trusted and widely used brand in the website security industry. Users will know that they are in good hands when registering, logging into your website, entering their personal information or credit card details on your website.

You will also receive a $250,000 warranty from Sectigo, together with the guarantee that the SSL certificate you are buying is highly compatible with most desktop browsers, servers, smartphones, and other mobile devices.

Sectigo InstantSSL Premium is the right website security choice for organizations and online shops.

    While not mandatory, Business Validation helps with PCI compliance and improves the client’s trust. I recommended this product with confidence.

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

Certain SSL Certificates allow you to secure an IP address, only if it is a public IP address. The validation process for IP addresses is similar to validating a domain name, but it has its particularities. That is why we encourage you to follow the guidelines below.

GoGetSSL

1) First of all, you have to configure your SSL Certificate by filling in the configuration form inside your SSL Dragon account.

Important! When configuring your certificate, you will be asked to generate a CSR with NO Common Name. Here is how to do it.

2) Include your 2 IP addresses (or more, if you purchased additional SANs) in the SAN field, space-separated, e.g.:

123.34.34.234
124.34.24.234

3) Once your certificate is configured, you have to prove the ownership or right to use that IP address. To do that, you have to pass the HTTP/HTTPS validation for your SSL Certificate. Email or DNS validation are not available for IP validation. To pass the HTTP/HTTPS validation, you have to create a .TXT file that contains the validation code provided on the “Content” field on the details page of your SSL Certificate page. The “Content” that you have to add to the .TXT file looks similar to this:

38622319C755B5952FA4CD590655F05000C4951C2EF07BFFCB2BBA23623BE9D6
COMODOCA.COM
t0520161001553133275

Then you have to upload the TXT file at a location on your server that looks like this:
http://127.0.0.1/.well-known/pki-validation/B34037F1D9BFE9F5936AFEA9798174AB.txt

127.0.0.1 should be replaced by the IP address that you are trying to validate. You can read the information on how to create the .well-known folder at this link: https://www.ssldragon.com/blog/faq_category/domain-validation/#collapse-13950

Make sure that you can access this file and link from any web browser. Inform us when you uploaded the attached TXT file on your server so that we could run a scan of your website and look particularly for this file at this given link.

If you follow these steps exactly, you will get your IP address validated successfully.

NOTE: If you have a router to secure instead of a server, there is no way to upload the TXT file on your router. The solution to getting the IP addresses validated is to reroute the IP address to a server, put the TXT file on that server, pass the IP validation, and then reroute the IP address back to the router.

 

Sectigo

1) First of all, you have to configure your SSL Certificate by filling in the configuration form inside your SSL Dragon account. When configuring your certificate, you will be asked to generate a CSR or enter an existing CSR.

Please make sure you include your IP address as a “common name” (domain/IP that you want to secure) in your CSR.

2) Once your certificate is configured, you have to prove the ownership or right to use that IP address. To do that, you have to pass the HTTP/HTTPS validation for your SSL Certificate. Email or DNS validation are not available for IP validation. To pass the HTTP/HTTPS validation, you have to create a .TXT file that contains the validation code provided on the “Content” field on the details page of your SSL Certificate page. The “Content” that you have to add to the .TXT file looks similar to this:

The solution to getting the IP addresses validated is to reroute the IP address to a server, put the TXT file on that server, pass the IP validation, and then reroute the IP address back to the router.

3) The last step towards getting the SSL Certificate for your IP address is to pass the Business Validation. You can find detailed instructions on how to do that at this link: https://www.ssldragon.com/contacts/faq/#collapse-3176

What are Multi-Year SSL Subscription Plans?

Starting with August 19th, 2020, the maximum duration of publicly-trusted SSL/TLS certificates issued by all Certificate Authorities (CAs) has been set to a maximum of 13 months.

However, in order to make your SSL Management process time-saving and cost-effective, the CAs and SSL Dragon are offering you the 2 Year and 3 Year SSL Subscription Plans.

This means that you can still buy a 2 or 3 year SSL Certificate and continue to benefit from multi-year discounting, while still remaining compliant with the CAB Forum SSL requirements.

How the Multi-Year SSL works?

Due to security reasons, your SSL certificate is initially issued with a maximum 1-year validity.

Prior to the expiration of your certificate, SSL Dragon, on behalf of the CA, we will issue a free replacement certificate for an additional 1-year certificate, according to your Subscription Plan.

You will need to validate & install the replacement SSL:

a. If you have a Domain Validation SSL Certificate, a short verification of your domain name will be required via Email, HTTP, or DNS in order to issue the 1-yr replacement SSL.

b. If you have a Business or Extended SSL Certificate – an additional Business Validation/Extended Validation recheck and callback process will also be required.

You can still reissue your certificate at any time and as many times as you like during your Multi-Year SSL Subscription Plan.

The Business Validation (BV), also called Organization Validation (OV), SSL certificate 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 within 1-3 business days.

After receiving Business Validation, the “https” and padlock icon will be displayed on your website’s address bar. These signs will make customers more willing to entrust you with their personal and financial information. Yet, if your website’s purpose is to perform large sales, offer specific products/services or execute financial transactions, you should consider buying our Extended Validation (EV) certificate.

bv2bv1You can check if you have a Business 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 Business Validation procedures. Please read the section that applies to your SSL Certificate brand below.

DigiCert (including Thawte & GeoTrust)

If you bought a Business Validation SSL Certificate with Thawte, GeoTrust, DigiCert, then the certificate authority will work on validating the legal existence of your organization via local public databases, as a part of the Business 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 next 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.

Sectigo/GoGetSSL

Please send the necessary forms described below to Sectigo by opening a ticket with Sectigo Validation Center at https://sectigo.com/support. 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: 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 2: 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: https://www.dandb.com/. 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 https://www.dandb.com/) 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 https://sectigo.com/support. 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: Business 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 2 or any necessary updates to the Step 1.

 

bv2bv1You can check if you have an Organization Validation SSL Certificate by looking at the attributes of your SSL Certificate. Business Validation equals to Organization Validation. This being said, wherever you see “Business Validation” it also means “Organization Validation”. 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 Organization Validation procedures. Please read the section that applies to your SSL Certificate brand below.

DigiCert (including Thawte & GeoTrust)

If you bought an Organization Validation SSL Certificate with Thawte, GeoTrust, DigiCert, then the certificate authority will work on validating the legal existence of your organization via local public databases, as a part of the Organization 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.
