Comodo needs to confirm that you have an actual physical address
To complete Extended Validation Comodo will need to verify that your company or organization has an established physical presence in its registered locality. To do this it will check for an actual physical address, meaning the building number (office or suite number if applicable), street, city, state and country.
How do I prove my physical address?
Comodo is going to check for your physical address by looking it up in your local online government database. If the information provided in your listing matches the information you put down in your CSR then you are good to go. Comodo will consider this requirement satisfied.
My company is not listed in an online database
Don't fret, this happens more than you think. The best way around this problem is just to send Comodo your official registration documents. As long as the documentation was issued by your local government and it matches the information that you provided, Comodo will accept it.
Are there any other methods to prove physical address?
Yes. There are two additional ways to prove physical address, they are a professional opinion letter and a Dun & Bradstreet credit report. Both will satisfy the Physical Address requirement.
- Professional Opinion Letter - Have an accredited accountant or attorney sign and notarize a form that states your company has a legitimate address.
- Dun & Bradstreet credit report - Dun & Bradstreet is highly trusted by Comodo, providing a copy of a Dun & Bradstreet credit report will satisfy this requirement.
