Domain Validated (DV) SSL Certificates are where a Certificate Authority (CA) checks and confirms that the person who has purchased the SSL Certificate has a right to purchase an SSL Certificate for the specified domain name. The SSL Certificate is then issued with the domain name only in the SSL Certificate. No organisation/company information is included.
Domain Validated SSL Certificates come with the advantage of being issued almost immediately and without the need to submit paperwork.
Domain Validated SSL Certificate products are authenticated using one of three validation methods :
– Approver E-Mail Domain Control Validation (DCV)
– HTTP / File Based Domain Control Validation (DCV)
– DNS CNAME Based Domain Control Validation (DCV)
Orders for major corporations, well known trademarks and financial institutions may be queued for further security reviews prior to issuance.
In the event an order is queued for review the administrative contact must be a full-time employee of the company for successful issuance. A verification telephone call with the administrative contact may be required.
