Validation Information Required to Receive an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate

If your organization is a government agency, is incorporated, or is a non-corporate entity such as a sole proprietorship, a general partnership, or an unincorporated association, you are eligible to receive an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate.  Before your EV SSL Certificate can be issued, Network Solutions® must verify your legal, operational and physical existence.  We must also confirm that you are authorized to apply for an EV SSL Certificate on behalf of your organization and that your organization is the registrant of the domain to which you are applying the EV SSL Certificate.  When verifying the information that you supply to us, we will use such sources as government registries for your jurisdiction of incorporation, corporate registry systems like Dun & Bradstreet, letters from your Attorney or Certified Public Accountant, bank account information, and information from other directory sources like WHOIS and the Yellow Pages.  On occasion, a site visit may be required to verify the information that you have supplied.
