What are the advantages of a Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate for your business?
Unlike other SSL certificates, Premium Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificates provide a prominent visual indicator that visitors can immediately recognize. Sites secured with an EV certificate display a green address bar, showing visitors that your organization's credentials have been authenticated according to a stringent, standardized vetting process.
Additionally, EV SSL certificates assure visitors that your organization is who it claims to be, and that they are not on a phishing site.
Premium EV SSL certificates are available for the following types of 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.
