Extended Validation SSL

Pairing your business name with the green lock leads to greater trust – for new and returning customers.

The highest level of authentication.

Websites with EV SSL certificates have more trust-indicators because they’ve been more seriously vetted. After domain ownership, business identity, the legal status of the business and address are verified, you get the green lock icon in the browser address bar and your company name highlighted in green.

What is an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate?

Extended Validation (EV) is the highest class of SSL Certificate available. It uses the same powerful encryption as other SSLs, but getting one requires a thorough vetting of the applicant’s business. Only those businesses that pass this process will receive an EV SSL Certificate. Anyone who sees the green address bar while on your site knows instantly they’re on a legitimate website.

Before we grant an EV Certificate, one of our staff members verifies that the business listed on the application is:

  • Legally registered
  • Currently in operation
  • At the address listed
  • At the telephone number listed
  • Owns the website domain name

You’ll need to pass this vetting process every two years to keep your Extended Validation (EV) SSL. Any business that sells products or accepts payment information online should use an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate.

What are the advantages of an EV SSL Certificate for your business?

Unlike other SSL Certificates, Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates display a prominent visual sign that visitors quickly recognize. The address bar on their browser turns green when they’re on an EV-secured website, showing them your business is legitimate.

Who can get an EV SSL?

Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates are only granted to the following organizations, businesses and corporations:

  • Incorporated or limited liability companies that are legally registered with a “Good Standing,” “Active,” or equivalent status.
  • Business entities such as general partnerships, unincorporated associations, DBAs and sole proprietorships.
How will my customers know my site is protected by an Extended Validation SSL?

Nearly everyone has had the experience of almost buying something online, only to leave the site before submitting their order because they didn’t feel safe.

Any website protected by an EV SSL will display a green address bar in addition to the padlock and HTTPS prefix. It shows shoppers they’re on an encrypted website and that their credit card information and any other sensitive data they’ve submitted are secure.

Key Features

See your name up in lights.

Your EV SSL displays the name of your business right next to the activated green lock in the address bar. That tells visitors your site’s trustworthy. And with that added assurance, you could be increasing potential revenue in the long run

Increase traffic and sales.

According to a CA Security Council study, only 2% of customers proceed past an “untrusted connection.” An EV SSL prevents these types of security errors that drive customers away.
