The nsProtect™ Secure SSL Certificate Application Process

When you apply for an SSL Certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA) such as Network Solutions®, you will be asked to provide certain types of information about your business and your ownership of it. Depending upon the type of certificate you are seeking, this information may include:

  • Dun & Bradstreet® registration numbers
  • Proof of physical address via database listings
  • Opinion letter from legal counsel or public accountant
  • Other corporate, financial, and government documents such as Articles of Incorporation, bank accounts, and business licenses
  • Government-issued photo IDs

The CA will review and verify the accuracy of these documents. Depending on the type of certificate, it may also perform additional checks before issuing the SSL Certificate. If the applicant's credentials can't be verified, then the CA will not issue the Certificate.

Due to the rigorous validation measures, issuing an SSL Certificate may take up to 5 business days depending upon the type of SSL Certificate purchased.
