We recently got our site (www.SiliconDroid.com) SSL-OV certified, It involved having a local registered lawyer who knows us write an “opinion letter” proving that we are a legitimate registered company (Silicon Droid Inc.)
What exactly is OV SSL? Here it’s explained by Sectigo:
“Organization Validation (OV) SSL certificates provide an extra level of online trust by authenticating the business identity and legitimacy. Organizations must prove it owns the domain name it wishes to secure and confirm that it is a legally registered business. This extra level of confirmation makes OV SSL certificates an ideal option for public-facing websites representing companies and organizations as well as sites requesting money or information from users, such as e-Commerce.”
