Here is a list with the most common questions our customers have when buying a Multi-Domain SSL Certificate 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.
You 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.
If 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 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.
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: 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 Opinion. If 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:
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: Extended Validation
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.
EV SSL Certificates issued by GeoTrust, Thawte, and DigiCert have a quicker and easier Extended Validation process compared to those issued by Sectigo.
With GeoTrust, Thawte, and DigiCert, the Certificate Authority does most of the company validation process all by itself, and in rare cases requires the customers to provide additional information and legal letters signed by a notary, certified public accountant, or an attorney.
On the other side, Sectigo relies a lot on the customer to provide all the information about his/her company, as well as updating the company’s DUNS listing (on the Dun & Bradstreet website) and providing legal letters signed by a notary, a certified public accountant, or an attorney.
You can read what the Extended Validation process with these different brands consists of at this link.
The Subject Alternative Name (SAN) SSL certificate, also called the Unified Communication Certificate (UCC) or the Multi-Domain SSL certificate was particularly developed to secure all your domains and subdomains by owning one single SSL certificate. This type of certificate ensures the security for both, your internal and external domains/subdomains and is fully compatible with your Microsoft Exchange products and Microsoft Office Communications Server.
UCC/SAN SSL certificates are not just easy to be managed but are the most cost-effective option. These certificates give you the opportunity to secure your main domain, for example, ssldragon.com, together with many other totally distinct domains, like ssldragon.net, ssldragonsslcertificates.com and its subdomains mail.ssldragon.com and account.ssldragon.com – all with 1 single certificate. Besides, unlike Wildcard SSL certificates, UCC/SAN certificates are available in all three validation methods: Domain Validation (DV), Business Validation (BV) and Extended Validation (EV).
You can find our full list of Multi Domain (UCC/SAN) SSL Certificates at this link.
A Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificate is specifically created to allow users to secure multiple domains and/or multiple sub-domains with one single SSL Certificate. Depending on the SSL Certificate product and brand, the certificate will include a different number of additional domains (called SANs) at the price quoted on the SSL Certificate’s details page (see screenshot on the right).
For example, a Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificate that has 4 domains by default allows you to secure:
- Four different domains:
- Four different subdomains:
- Four different domains and subdomains:
NOTE: Here is how you should configure your Multi-Domain SSL Certificate on our website: When you generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request), please include one single domain name or sub-domain in it, such as: www.example.com. The rest of the domains or sub-domains, which are called SANs (2nd, 3rd, 4th domains or sub-domains) should be included in the fields for additional domains. You will see the fields for additional domains on the SSL Certificate configuration form, right under the text area for the CSR (see screenshot on the right).
When you buy or configure your Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificate, please note that most Multi-Domain Certificates do not secure the domains with and without “www”. With other words if you want to secure both, example.com and www.example.com under one single Multi-Domain Certificate, that will be considered as two different domain names. The screenshot on the right shows you where you can find the attribute that tells you if your Multi-Domain Certificate secures both “www” and “non-www” under one single domain (SAN), or not.
Anyway, that is not a problem so as you cannot have the same website open both as www.example.com and as example.com. All website owners only choose one of these options and make the other option automatically re-direct to the other. For example, you can choose your website to always open at www.example.com and anybody who enters on example.com is automatically redirected to www.example.com. In this way, you only have to secure one domain, and that is: www.example.com.
The multi-domain certificate can be initially activated for the primary domain name.
If you wish to add more domains later, you need to reissue the certificate in your SSLDragon.com account, and add the SAN (additional domain) list in the SAN field, when reissuing.
If you need to add more domains than included by default, then please choose the Add More SANs option in order to pay for and activate the additional SANs.
When you buy a multi-domain SSL Certificate and you include several domain names and/or sub-domains in it, the Certificate Authorities require you to pass the domain validation for each and every domain name and/or sub-domain that you included in your multi-domain SSL Certificate, and only after that, the multi-domain SSL Certificate will be issued to you.
POSSIBLE PROBLEM: Sometimes the email addresses, or your HTTP options, or the DNS records that you choose for your multi-domain certificate do not get set correctly when they reach the Certificate Authority. You will know that when you see that you only got one single domain validation message to your email address instead of getting several domain validation messages, or your multi-domain SSL Certificate’s status still shows as “Awaiting Validation (Full)” even though you passed the domain validation for one of the domains.
HOW TO FIX: There is an easy way to fix that, and that requires getting in contact with the Certificate Authority’s Validation Department. When you contact them, please provide them your “Partner Order ID” (see screenshot on the right), and then tell them about the domain validation method that you chose to go with: HTTP, DNS, or Email. If you chose to pass the domains validation by email, then double-check with the Validation Department representatives what email addresses are set in their system, and ask them to send you the domain validation messages to your desired email addresses.
Please call Sectigo Validation Department at +1 (888) 266-6361 (Ext 4) or https://sectigo.com/support for the above-stated reasons. When you talk to them, you will need to provide them your “Partner Order ID”.
Thawte, GeoTrust, DigiCert
Please call Thawte, GeoTrust, DigiCert Validation Department at +1 (520) 477-3152 (Ext 2) for the above-stated reasons. 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”.
You can receive a refund ONLY for the additional domains (SANs) that you bought and NOT used.
If you have already activated the SAN (additional domain) for a particular domain name, then you cannot be refunded for that specific domain name.
The Multi-Domain (UCC/SAN) SSL Certificate allows you to secure multiple domains or subdomains which are hosted either on one IP address or different IP addresses. This SSL Certificate type was particularly designed to secure multiple websites within one single SSL Certificate as an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution.

There are many different ways to install an SSL Certificate, and they all depend on your SSL Certificate brand, the webserver type, the operating system on your server, and the web hosting panel that you have on your server.
These being said, please check our Installation Articles to get detailed instructions on how to install your SSL Certificate on about 44 different server types, hosting panels, and operating systems.
