Certificate validation method

To ensure maximum security, the EV SSL certificate issue method is more exhaustive during the validation phase, and it takes more time to issue it than for a generalOV certificate. Information is validated against more sources and certified documents have to be sent. The owner's details of the domain for which the SSL certificate will be issued are checked, the applicant's organization is verified, and the contact person and their employment relationship are verified too.
Organization data is checked in the Commercial Register, contact data in public phone books, and the domain owner is verified against available domain operator databases.
The contact person's employment relationship is verified using the supplied form from the certificate authority, which must be confirmed by an authorized person in the organization (HR manager, head). In turn, this person is validated by phone. Final validation is performed by phone with the authorization person listed in the order.
If the certificate authority can't find certain information publicly, it requests an additional form validation. The time to issue the certificate increases by the time needed to make additional verifications.

Certificate issuance time

If you enter a correct CSR file to your order and make the payment, the validation and issuance process of your SSL certificate is generally finished in one work week.

Certificate validity

The SSL certificate is valid from the date when its validation is finished and the certificate is issued. The validity period runs from this date for the period (years) selected in the SSL certificate order.

Certificate reissue

You can have your certificate reissued (if, for example, you delete your private key) any time and FREE, if necessary. For successful reissuing of the certificate it is necessary to supply a new CSR file which contains the same data as the original order.

Certificate renewal (RENEW)

SSL certificate renewal process can be started 90 days before the end of the validity period. Don't worry about losing the remaining time of the certificate validity. This period will be added to the renewed certificate and the unused days will be rounded up to months. The remaining period can be added only when you order the SSL certificate renewal and pay for it at least 17 days before expiration.

Certificate seal display

Information about security on your website can be supported by displaying the Norton Secured Sealgenerated by the Symantec certificate authority. It is a dynamic image from which the user can immediately recognize that the site is secured by an SSL certificate. By clicking the seal, it is possible to verify all of the information about the certificate authority and the SSL certificate validity.
