Globe Hosting Certification Authority SSL Validation Guidelines

Domain Validated SSL Certificates

Domain Validated SSL Certificates (DV Certificates) are low trust, but with good encryption certificates. To get a Domain Validated SSL Certificate you just have to prove that you own the domain by responding to an email or phone call using the information in the WHOIS record of the domain, or by having an option to create an email on that domain. It's very easy and you`ll have your certificate delivered within seconds!  
Your company doesn't have to be validated and no organization name is entered in the certificate! These certificates won`t provide much trust because of this to your customers!
More trusted and with higher Warranty than Domain Validation SSL Certificates, Organization Validation SSL Certificates are best choice for ecommerce websites, high traffic websites or strict security networks - and come as a must if you expect your users to trust and gain trust to hand out sensitive or confidential information. We can provide additional informations and advisory weather you need an OV by contacting us.
 These certificates come with a "smart" WebSite Seal, that will provide your users even more confidence.
                DV Validation procedures

information provided by the applicant order to check that:

 The applicant has the right to use the domain name used in the application.
• Validated by reviewing domain name ownership records available publicly through Internet or approved global domain name registrars.
• Validation may be supplemented through the use of the administrator contact associated with the domain name register record for communication with GlobeSSL validation staff or for automated email challenges.
• Validation may be supplemented through the use of generic emails which ordinarily are only available to the person(s) controlling the domain name administration, for example webmaster@..., root@..., admin@...
