What is a Domain Validation SSL Certificate?

DV SSL is an entry-level SSL, it's issued lightning fast and provides strong encryption

Asking yourself what a DV SSL is and if it's right for your website? A Domain Validation SSL Certificate provides strong encryption to websites like blogs and brochure sites. A DV SSL can be issued within minutes, making it the go-to option for anyone looking to secure their domain quickly.

No frills, just encryption

Domain Validation SSL certificates are great because they offer affordable encryption that can be easily obtained and deployed. You don't have to jump through any hoops with DV SSL, you'll have your certificate in minutes. Best of all, you're getting strong encryption - the same encryption you'd get with OV and EV - that doesn't break your bank.

Lightning Fast Issuance

All you have to do to get a Domain Validation SSL certificate is show Comodo that you own your domain. And you won't be stuck waiting for someone from Comodo to get around to it, either-the process is fully automated. Your certificate will be in your inbox in just minutes.

Just show Comodo you own your Domain

Validation for a DV SSL is fully automated and very easy. There are three ways to show Comodo you're the rightful owner of the registered domain.

  • Email-Based Validation - Comodo sends an email to the address on the WHO.IS record, or one of five pre-approved addressed, and you answer back in the affirmative.
  • File-Based Validation - Comodo sends a text file that you need to upload to your site's root directory. Comodo will scan your site for it as soon as you do.
  • CNAME-based Validation - Comodo will send you a hash that you need to add to your CNAME DNS record. Comodo will scan your DNS record for it as soon as you do.
