SSL Certificate Domain Validation

Domain Validation

Domain validation is the fastest issuance method of SSL and is available for both business and private clients that do not have a company. No paperwork - as it's requires no company or business documents for a validation process, even no callbacks. The validation process is very simple and easy; all you need is to respond to automatic system message called DCV (Domain Control Validation) that will be sent to your email. That's it!

Please note, that it's possible to validate domain with open privacy only, if your domain registration is private and closed, you will need to open it during Domain Validation process or use alternative methods of validation.
