SSL Certificate Types

Three validation levels and four types of functionality

The beauty of SSL/TLS is that there is a certificate type for every use case. From the smallest of personal websites to the largest enterprise domains, there’s an SSL certificate specifically designed to secure it. We’ve been in the SSL business for a long time, since back when Sectigo was still Comodo CA. Suffice it to say, we know what we’re doing and we can help you find the perfect SSL solution for you and your website.

Types of SSL Certificates

There are two distinctions to be made when we discuss types of SSL certificate.

  • Validation Level: DV, OV, & EV
  • Functionality: Single Domain, Wildcard, Multi-Domain, & Multi-Domain Wildcard

Domain Validation

Domain Validation is the least stringent form of validation. All that must be proven is control over the domain. As a result, these certificates can be issued and deployed quickly. They also cost less. DV is a great option for small sites that don’t collect personal data. But if you need to assert identity, DV isn’t the best option.

Shop by Type

Domain Validation

The most popular type of certificates, Domain Validation SSL certificates provide simple server authentication and can be issued in just minutes. Learn More

Organization Validation

Organization Validation SSL Certificates provide light business vetting, which places verified organizational details in the certificate details. OV SSL can also encrypt IP addresses. Learn More

Extended Validation

Extended Validation SSL certificates have a unique visual indicator. Following a full business vetting your organization’s name will appear beside the URL in the address bar (shown as an expanded green address bar in most browsers). Learn More

Multi-Domain SSL Certificates

A Multi-Domain SSL certificate can be purchased at all three validation levels. Each additional website is added as a SAN (Subject Alternative Name). You can add up to 250 SAN to a Sectigo multi-domain certificate. Learn More

Wildcard SSL Certificates

Securing subdomains individually would be cost-prohibitive, but a Wildcard SSL certificate can secure an unlimited number of subdomains on a single certificate. Learn More

Code Signing

Protect your users by signing your executable programs for Windows, Java, Mozilla, Microsoft Office, and other platforms. A code signing certificate removes security warnings users would otherwise see when installing your software, as well as guaranteeing that the code has not been tampered with. Learn More

Miscellaneous Products

Sectigo provides a full line of security products, including email and document signing certificates, PCI compliance scanners, and website malware scanners.
