How does the Extended Validation work?

Extended Validation (EV) for SSL Certificates is the most complete verification process available, because after validate the domain and your business you will also need to send additional documentation to the issuer (the SSL brand) who will check them.
We recommend the use of Extended Validation SSL Certificates for online shops and business that use shopping carts, you will obtain the Green browser bar, that will appear at the browser of your visitors, this is the most visible sign of the security your site has, this will increase the trust of your visitors when sending sensible information.

Step 1: Domain Validation

This is the easiest step, you will simply have to respond to an automated message that will be sent to your e-mail account.

Step 2: Supply Business Documents

You will have to provide documentation relative to your company to the SSL Issuer, this can be done by e-mail (in PDF format), per fax or even per Post mail. You will need to send one of the following documents: Articles of Incorporation, Business License, DUNS details (e.g. your customer’s Dun & Bradstreet company number).

Step 3: Supply EV Documents

Once you’ve sent the documents relative to your company, you will also need to send the EV SSL Subscriber Agrement and Certificate Request Form to complete the EV Validation process. This process is slower but permits you to obtain the maximum verification available.
