Extended Validation SSL Overview
An Extended Validation SSL Certificate is issued by a "Certificate Authority" (Such as GeoTrust, Thawte or Symantec) as a means of providing assurance to a website visitor that the site they are on is owned and operated by a company that has been identified by an independent third-party company.
Sites that have undergone this process will utilize this certificate to safeguard their site from "impostor" websites that might appear to the untrained eye as being legitimate. With the advent of higher security browsers it is far easier to be sure that the site you're visiting has undergone this stringent process. All the major web browsers now will employ a "green bar" appearance to signify that an Extended Validation SSL Certificate is in place.
The "green bar" is an instantly recognizable way of showing your customers that your site is secure and trustworthy. Below are screen grabs of how each browser alerts viewers that your site is verified and that their data is being protected by the highest level of security. Maximize your sales potential by providing your customers with the confidence they need to go from "shopper"to "buyer".
EV Validation Requirements and Order Process
What type of documentation you'll be required to provide will depend on what type of organization you're operation. The requirements vary for government agencies, corporations, general partnerships, unincorporated associations and sole proprietorships.
Generally speaking, the certificate authority is going to ask for documents and identification to verify that you are the person, business or organization you claim to be and they'll want the most reliable official documents to substantiate that.
For a detailed description of the documents you will need to provide the steps you'll need to follow, please see our Extended Validation Requirements page for more information.
Only Extended Validation SSL Certificates trigger the green bar in high-security web browsers.
