Ordering DV Certificates

The certificate lifecycle begins when administrators and users log into their account and request DV certificates for their domains. CertCentral account users can only request the types of certificates that have been authorized for their account (their company/organization).

Prerequisites

Before you can begin ordering DV SSL/TLS certificates, your sales representative must enable DV certificates for your CertCentral account. Then, on the Product Settings page (Settings > Product Settings), you can enable the DV certificate products (e.g., GeoTrust Standard DV).

Depending on the structure of your account, you may be able to request the following types of DV certificates:

  • GeoTrust Standard DV
    Protect your website with RSA 2048+ encryption or ECC 256+ keys and SHA2-256 signature algorithm.
    • Provides encryption for one domain
    • When you buy www.example.com, example.com will also be secured -- for free
    • Add SANs to secure multiple domains on one certificate
      (Adding SANs to a GeoTrust Standard DV certificate order may incur additional cost.)
    • Unlimited server license means you can install the certificate on multiple servers at no extra cost
    • Trusted by all major browsers and operating systems
    • Meets and exceeds PCI Compliance requirements for TLS certificates


  • GeoTrust Wildcard DV
    Protect your website with RSA 2048+ encryption or ECC 256+ keys and SHA2-256 signature algorithm.

    • Also secures the parent domain (*.[yourdomain].com)
    • Add SANs to secure multiple wildcard domains (e.g., *.[yourdomain], *.[seconddomain].com, and *.[thirddomain].com) on one certificate
      (Adding SANs to a GeoTrust Wildcard DV certificate order may incur additional cost.)
