Domain Validation (DV) SSL
Domain Validated SSL offers an easy, affordable option for securing your website. DV Certificates are domain validated and fully automated, which means you’ll be able to start protecting your e-commerce, logins, webmail, blog visitors and more in just a few minutes. It activates https and assures your website visitors and customers that you take their privacy seriously.
Organization Validation (OV) SSL
Organization Validated Certificates provide instant identity confirmation and strong SSL protection for your website and business. OV SSL is an organization validated certificate that gives your website a step up in credibility over Domain Validated SSL Certificates. It activates https and assures your customers that you take security seriously. Site visitors can verify that the website is operated by a legitimate company and is not an impostor site.
Extended Validation (EV) SSL
Extended Validation Certificates are the highest class of SSL available today and lend the most credibility to your website by prominently displaying your verified organization name directly in the electronic website certificate itself. This increases user trust in your websites, increases its credibility, and distinguishes it from impostor or phishing sites, all of which leads to more sales and conversions.
Wildcard SSL allows you to secure an unlimited number of subdomains on a single certificate. It’s a great solution for anyone who hosts or manages multiple sites or pages that exist on the same domain. The one-time cost of the certificate covers you for additional subdomains you may add in the future. Unlike a standard SSL Certificate that is issued to a single Fully Qualified Domain Name only (e.g., www.yourdomain.com), which means it can only be used to secure the exact domain to which it has been issued, a Wildcard SSL Certificate is issued to *.yourdomain.com, where the asterisk represents all possible subdomains. Wildcards are an option for Domain Validated (DV) and Organization Validated (OV) certificates.
Multi-Domain and SANs Certificates
Multi-Domain, also referred to commonly as SAN Certificates, utilize Subject Alternative Names (SANs) to secure up to 100 different domain names, subdomains, and public IP addresses, using only one SSL Certificate and requiring only one IP to host the certificate. GlobalSign includes OWA, Mail, and Autodiscover SANs for free with all SSL Certificates. See table below for pricing and support of different SAN types depending on certificate type - DV, OV, or EV.
