How to choose a certificate
Choosign a Certificate
The right SSL certificate depends on the level of assurance your customers need and the minimum security level your organization requires.
Authentication means that a trusted third party has verified the identification information contained in your SSL certificate, assuring customers that your site is actually your site.
- Minimum reliability: consider certificates with Domain Validation, it is only verified that the person requesting the certificate has control over the domain. The organization of the domain owner is not verified.
- More Reliability: For added security, Organization Validation SSL certificates include your domain name and validated organization name in the certificate details.
- Highest Reliability: To that end, Extended Validation certificates demonstrate that your organization has met the highest level of authentication in the industry. Certificates with Extended Validation include your domain name, organization, and location in the certificate details.
If you cannot risk losing a single user for lack of trust, choose an SSL Certificate with EV to inspire the highest level of trust among your site’s users.
