Should I get an EV SSL or a standard SSL?
A standard SSL certificate is ideal for most businesses as the protection it offers is already quite comprehensive, Extended Validation certificates are better suited for medium to large businesses that deal with a large amount of traffic on their website.
Standard SSL certificates are the simplest SSL certificates to get, they don’t require any manual screening process but rather rely on an automated process which checks that the website is actually registered to the person who owns the domain.
The screening process for obtaining an Extended Validation SSL certificate is far more in depth that a standard SSL certificate, one of our staff members must confirm that a range of details is true and valid for your business. We must prove that all of the following is true of your business:
- Legally registered
- Currently in operation
- At the address listed
- At the telephone number listed
- Owns the website domain name

Extended Validation SSL certificates are only granted to the following organizations, businesses and corporations:
- Incorporated or limited liability companies that are legally registered with a “Good Standing,” “Active,” or equivalent status.
- Business entities such as general partnerships, unincorporated associations and sole proprietorships.
