EV certificates go beyond encryption: they add trust to a website. At First Choice Hosting, our EV SSL certificates come from some of the most trusted brands in the world and will give customers the confidence they need to transact online. EV stands for Extended Validation, a process which lets the customer know that the company they are dealing with has been thoroughly vetted, and is safe to do business with. The validation process for an EV certificate usually takes around 5-7 business days, and is conducted directly by the CA.
If you use your website for advertising purposes or for ecommerce, EV SSL certificates are a must. Some of the other highlights of EV certificates are:
- Trust indicators added to your website, such as the green address bar, which will surround your URL. This is the same green bar used by highly trusted sites like Google, Twitter, Amazon, etc.
- The highest level of encryption, ensuring user information is well protected from hackers and phishers.
- Additional security features available with some EV certificates like daily malware scans and vulnerability assessments.
- 99.9% browser compatibility.
- And more.
