SSL Certificates with organization validation (OV)

An SSL certificate with organization validation is suitable for websites where visitors leave data and make purchases.

What is an OV SS certificate?

OV (organization validation) is a type of SSL certificate validation. When a buyer orders an OV certificate, the certification center checks the data about his company in the directories. An OV certificate confirms that the website belongs to an existing organization.

Who should buy an OV SSL certificate?

An OV certificate is suitable for websites that collect user data, online stores, websites with services, paid subscriptions services:

  • Small online stores
  • Websites with paid services
  • Charity funds

How to get an OV SSL certificate?

A certificate with the organization validation is issued within 3 to 10 working days. When ordering a certificate, the buyer specifies the details of the organization. This can be the number in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, the legal address, or the telephone number. The Certification Authority checks this information. Sometimes they make a call to the company.

Another step in the verification process is domain validation. It is most often done by email. The Certification Authority will send an email to the email address in the domain for which the certificate is being issued. To validate you need to click on the link in the letter.

Limitations of OV SSL certificates

Not suitable for large companies

We do not recommend using OV certificates for large organizations: banks, famous brands, or government agencies. In this case, it is better to use certificates with in-depth EV check - they cause the maximum confidence of visitors.

Not optimal for blogs and business card websites

The issuance of an OV certificate takes a few days and includes a basic check of the legal entity or individual entrepreneur. If your website does not collect personal data or accept payments, we recommend purchasing a certificate with basic DV validation. You can get them for free. DV certificates can be obtained and installed in a few minutes in ISPmanager.
