DigiCert Extended Validation EV SSL Certificate

Single-Name SSL Certificates with the Green Address Bar

Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates

Improve Conversion Rates and Customer Confidence with Green Bar Assurance

Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates use the highest level of authentication designed specifically with the intention to boost customer confidence in e-commerce sites. EV SSL Certificates initiate the green address bar and display a prominent secure lock (green padlock) to assure visitors of the site they visit. Every EV SSL certificate application goes through a stringent process of evaluation supported by documentation checks to confirm the ownership and legitimacy of websites.



Green Indicates Trust

DigiCert adheres to a set of criteria strictly defined by the CA/Browser Forum when validating a website for an EV certificate. 

Upon purchase of an EV certificate, DigiCert’s validation specialists would contact the requesting organization to confirm their request of the certificate and that the person applying is authorized to receive the certificate on behalf of the organization. This is part of the validation process to prevent fraudulent or phishing activities i.e SSL phishing.

DigiCert Validation Process includes:

  • Verifying the legal, physical, and operational existence of the entity
  • Verifying that the identity of the entity matches official records
  • Verifying that the entity has exclusive right to use the domain specified
  • Verifying that the entity has properly authorized the issuance of the certificate


What does EV Look Like?

  • https:// at the beginning of the domain name
  • Padlock in the address bar
