Digicert Extended Validation Certificate

Extended Validation EV SSL Certificate

EV SSL Certificates Help to Protect Your Customers

The highest level of authentication makes Extended Validation SSL Certificates the ultimate in building trust through your website. DigiCert's EV Plus certificates use Subject Alternative Names to secure both www.example.com and example.com in one ssl certificate. That means your customers get the green bar in EV-enabled browsers with or without the "www."

Online shopping is about trust, and getting Extended Validation EV SSL certificates is one of the most effective ways to build trust with your clients.

EV SSL Certificates help you protect your most valuable assets, your customers and your brand, by protecting them from phishing scams and online fraud.

Benefits of Extended Validation Certificates:

  • Secure multiple domains with your EV UC cert!
  • Green Bar Assurance: The browser's address bar turns green when visiting a site using an EV Certificate, confirming that the site has passed a comprehensive identity verification.
  • Converts more visitors into sales - increased conversion rates mean increased revenue!
  • Meets and exceeds PCI Compliance requirements for SSL certificates.

Green means "Trust"

EV SSL is the very best SSL certificate option for organizations that deal with sensitive personal and financial information, credit card details, or login credentials.

Once your site is enabled with DigiCert EV SSL, the browser address bar will turn green when a user visits your site, showing that your website has been verified as authentic and not a known scam or phishing site. This will set your business apart, giving your customers peace of mind when submitting private data. For more information check out our Extended Validation SSL FAQ.

What does EV look like in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari?

EV Green Bar

It's Good, Really Good.

  • Browsers will clearly identify your web site to your customers at all times, so they know who they are doing business with.
  • Browsers will show that you have been verified by a trusted, authorized EV provider by displaying the name of the SSL Certificate Authority (CA) who issued the EV Certificate.
  • Your customers will know immediately if redirected from a legitimate EV site to a bogus phishing site, since it will no longer display as trusted green.

How do I purchase EV Certificates?

Our new Extended Validation certificate packages come in groups of 3, 10, and 25 certs. Your certificates can be issued at any point in time during the lifetime of your package (one and two year plans available). Much like a Wildcard certificate, these certificates must be issued to the same base domain (e.g., example.com), and will all expire at the end of the chosen term limit.

One Year Packages

25 Certs$80 per cert($1988 total)
10 Certs$119 per cert($1188 total)
3 Certs$163 per cert($488 total)

Save Time and Money by choosing the 2-Year Option during Checkout:

  • The 2-year discount price saves you 20%!
  • Save the time and cost of installing another certificate next year.

Although EV SSL certificates are validated to the highest level, DigiCert has streamlined the process to provide your certificate in quickest and most effective way possible.

EV Certificates are usually issued within a day or two of the original request. However, it is always a good idea to order your certificate in advance of when it will actually be needed.
