Validation Note: Before you can prevalidate a domain for TLS/SSL validation, you must first submit its organization for prevalidation. Additionally, if you want the domain to be used for OV, EV, and/or Private SSL certificates, you must submit its organization for those matching validation types.
To demonstrate control over the domain, an email recipient follows the instructions in a confirmation email sent for the domain. The confirmation process consists of visiting the link provided in the email and following the instructions on the page. See Domain pre-validation: Domain control validation (DCV) methods.
In your CertCentral account, in the left main menu, go to Certificates > Domains.
On the Domains page, click New Domain.
On the New Domain page, under Domain Details, enter the following information:
Under Validate This Domain For, check the validation types you want the domain validated for.
Under Domain Control Validation (DCV) Method, select Verification Email.
To demonstrate control over the domain, an email recipient follows the instructions in a confirmation email sent for the domain.
When you are finished, click Submit for Validation.
DigiCert now sends two sets of DCV emails: WHOIS-based and Constructed.
