What is the Validation Level

Before a certificate authority issues an SSL Certificate, they validate the information provided in the certificate request.  The more complete the validation, the more site visitors trust the certificate.

Domain Validation - Validates domain is registered and someone with admin rights is aware of and approves the certificate request.

Organisation Validation - Validates domain ownership, plus organisation information included in the certificate (name, city, state, country).

Extended Validation - Validates domain ownership and organization information, plus legal existence of the organization and that the organization is aware of and approves the request.
