A step up from Domain Validation, Organizational Validation allows a business’s information to be checked through the secure site seal. The validation procedure carried out by the issuing Certificate Authority is fairly strict, checking both that the applicant has the right to their domain name and that they are a legitimate business. Visually, OV certificates in the browser bar are identical to DV certificates However, the site seal provided with the certificate typically includes additional information like organization’s name is also listed in the certificate, giving added trust that both the website and the company are reputable.
(EV Certificate, Extended validation) provide the maximum amount of trust to visitors, and also require the most effort by the certificate authority to conduct an intense investigation of a business before issuance.
EV certificate will also show the name of the company or organization in the address bar itself, and a green bar is added to the user’s browser to signify that the certificate holder is a trusted authority.
If you run your online business on a eCommerce or corporate website, do consider changing your certificate to EV Certificate.
