Online Support SSL Certificates

What is EV Technology?

Extend Validation (EV) Certificates are a new type of SSL Certificate designed to provide higher-level assurance and combat phishing attacks.

They do this by requiring very high-level checks on the company that orders one. The requirements include the following:

  • Checking the physical, legal and operational activities of the company that is ordering the certificate.
  • Making sure that the company owns the domain they are installing the EV SSL Certificate on.
  • Cross-checking official records like business licenses and incorporation documents.
  • Making sure that the company are requesting the EV Certificate on their own behalf.

An EV Certificate's main benefit is to ensure that your customers know that they are dealing with a highly legitimate and trustworthy business. It provides the green address bar that immediately increases customer confidence that your site has the very best in safety and secure data transmission.
