OV SSL CERTIFICATE

What are Organizational Validation Certificates?

Organizational Validation does more than validate your domain—it verifies your business is who it says it is. The primary reason for a website to obtain an OV SSL Certificate is to encrypt a website user’s sensitive information during transactions. Basic, Advanced and Wildcard SSLs are categorized as Organizational Validation (OV) Certificates. An OV Certificate is issued only after verifying/confirming the legitimacy of the applicant's business. This is done by using currently established and accepted vetting processes, like manually checking credentials such as Dun & Bradstreet numbers, articles of incorporation, WHOIS database information, passport, driver's license, etc. You move through the various stages of validation using the Network Solutions Account Manager. Email communications will also be sent to you to assist in the process.

Once all validation is complete, the SSL Certificate is issued electronically and is ready for installation on the website. If the site is hosted with Network Solutions, much of this installation process is automated. If the website is not hosted with Network Solutions, please contact the hosting provider.If the website is not hosted with Network Solutions, please contact the hosting provider to set up your SSL.

FAQs

The encryption provided by SSL Certificates helps to prevent hackers from stealing private and confidential information sent via the Internet. A website secured with an SSL Certificate provides a safe place for customers to enter sensitive data such as credit card information, bank account numbers, etc.

Organizational Validation and Extended Validation are business level validations and are included in products such as the Basic, Advanced, Wildcard, and Extended SSL Certificates. The type of validation needed depends on your budget, organizational size and number of subdomains.

Because computers and servers are networked and maintain an ongoing connection with the web, protecting private data and information while it’s stored or sent online requires an extra measure of security. Encryption changes data into a form that can only be read by the intended receiver.

256-Bit Encryption refers to the size of the decryption key used to unscramble encrypted data. 256-Bit encryption is considered computationally infeasible to crack and is known as a very strong SSL certificate.

Security vulnerability is a liability. A monetary guarantee assures your customers that their transactions are protected on your website. Wildcard comes with a $1 million guarantee—so should they incur losses resulting directly from an online credit card transaction while visiting your website and the loss is a result of a misissued certificate, your customer will receive reimbursement up to $1 million.
