What is a Business or EV SSL Certificate?¶
Business SSL certificates are a type of SSL certificate that comes with a financial warranty that will insure you in the event of a security breach for the amount chosen for the certificate. This type of certificate also includes extra verification of your identity, to provide extra assurance to your customers that you are who you claim to be.
This type of certificate is only available to accounts that are legal entities, such as businesses or associations, and not individuals.
When buying a business certificate you must place the order and enter the CSR on our website during its creation. We will then send this information to our partner, Sectigo, who will perform the verification phase.
We recommend ordering a business certificate at least one month before you require the certificate’s delivery.
When you order Business SSL certificates you will need to provide some documentation to help verify your identity.
There are two types of single-address business certificates that you can choose from when making your purchase on our website:
- Warrantied up to $250,000
- Warrantied up to $250,000 with SGC compatibility
“Warrantied” means that you are financially covered up to the amount of your warranty if the security of your website is compromised due to a fault with the SSL certificate.
“SGC compatibility” means, in short, that the certificate will work on older web browsers.
Unlike the wildcard standard SSL certificates, the multi-domain version lets you secure more than one domain name on the same certificate. For example:
There are four types of multi-domain Business certificates, all of which are warrantied up to $250,000.
When making your choice, you can decide to purchase a certificate to secure:
- Up to 3 domains
- Up to 5 domains
- Up to 10 domains
- Up to 20 domains
