Pair your business name with an EV SSL certificate.


Websites that receive an EV SSL certificate are those that have been seriously vetted. That means, once domain ownership is established, then your business identity, legal status and address are verified. Then, you get the secure padlock icon in your browser address bar and company name highlighted in green.

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.

Show customers they’re safe.

Besides the green lock in your visitors’ browser, your company’s registered name also appears in green — a powerful combination that proves your site is authentic and safe.

Frequently asked questions

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.

What's the difference between an Extended Validation (EV) Certificate and Organization Validation (OV) or Domain Validated (DV) Certificates?

Domain Validation (DV) Certificates are easiest of all the certificates to get. There's no manual identity check, only an automated verification that the applicant owns the domain behind the website. If you have a personal website or blog, a DV SSL Certificate is fine for you.

Organization Validation (OV) Certificates take security up a level and require human verification of the organization’s identity. The same is true for Extended Validation (EV) Certificates, which verify not just domain ownership but business identity, legal status and address. The vetting process for the EV cert is more in-depth than any of the other Certificates, so EV SSL Certificates give customers more confidence. The increased scrutiny rules out the chance that a hacker or phisher could get an EV Certificate.
