Company Validated SSL certificate
OV SSL - more trustworthy than domain validation SSL
The CA verifies domain ownership as well registered business documents and other legal documents related to business.
The domain is verified by sending an e-mail message to the selected e-mail. According to the rules there are fixed addresses to choose from admin@, administrator@, webmaster@, hostmaster@ or postmaster@. Instead of e-mail confirmation, alternative validation offers inserting a TXT record into a DNS domain zone or a text file into the data space on the server (FTP). We support both alternative verification methods and are set in the order detail.
Note i: It is not possible to send a validation email to a personal address e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long it takes to get the Thawte SSL WebServer certificate
The Certificate Authority performs light business authentication
The Certification Authority verifies domain ownership as well registered business documents and other legal documents related to business. If the certification authority has sufficient documentation, the domain is confirmed and telephone verification is carried out, it takes 2 to 5 days to issue the certificate. If the authority can not confirm the legal, operational and physical existence of the company, the verification time is extended.
Thawte SSL WebServer certificate secures one domain
For Single Domain Name (FQDN) the certificate secures both variant: domain.com and www.domain.com. For 3rd level domains and higher, the www variant is not always added automatically.
Renewing your certificate
You need to renew Thawte SSL WebServer certificate before it expires
You can start renewing an expiring SSL certificate 30 days before it expires. It is recommended not to leave the renewal to the last minute, unused validity of the certificate will be added to the renewed one.
You can renew your Thawte SSL WebServer certificate with us without any problem even if you originally ordered it from another supplier. We always have better prices than the certification authority!
Unlimited free reissues for orders at our store
During the validity of the certificate, you can re-generate the certificate at any time free of charge. This is called REISSUE and is useful in case you do not have a private key for migration to another server or the keys have been deleted and there is no backup. Reissue is possible with a new request that contains the same data as the initial order.
Note i: Best practices are to generate a new certificate signing request (CSR) when reissuing your SSL/TLS certificate. Generating a new CSR creates a new, unique key pair (public/private) for the reissued certificate.
Note ii: It is not possible to reissue SSL while it is processing or another reissue request pending.
