Domain Validation SSL certificates

  • D

    SSL certificates with domain verification, or as some call them, entry-level certificates are the most common in the world, and this is not surprising, because the speed of issuing such certificates varies from 2-10 minutes, depending on the brand. To obtain such a certificate, no documents are required, the whole process is extremely simple, you need to confirm ownership of the domain, and for this there are 3 ways, one main and two alternative.

    Entry-level SSL certificates with domain verification are one of the fastest-issued certificate types because Do not require any documents. We recommend these certificates for small sites and small projects, when you do not need a lot of trust from clients and visitors of the site, project. With such a certificate, static security logos are more often used, however there are some that offer dynamic ones, for example: Thawte SSL 123, Sectigo SSL Certificate.

      Validation methods

      Here is a short overview of available verification methods for Domain Validation certs.

      • Validation via Email (DCV Email)

        This method is described on many sites and blogs, the whole point is that the certification authority will send you a verification letter in which there will be a link to confirm ownership of the domain. Such a letter can be sent either to the e-mail specified in the Whois of your domain, or to one of the golden five: admin @, administrator @, hostmaster @, postmaster @, webmaster @

      • Validation via DNS CNAME

        A fairly popular method, for those who may not have a mail server configured, and whois e-mails are closed by private registration. The bottom line is simple, you have to make a special entry in your DNS, and the certification authority will check it. The method is fully automatic.

      • Validation Using a Hash File (HTTP CSR Hash)

        An even simpler method is that you will be provided with a special .txt file that you must upload to your server, the certification authority will verify its availability and a certificate will be issued. The method is fully automatic.
