Wildcard SSL (OV)


Product description

Wildcard SSL (OV) stands for Wildcard SSL (Organization Validated). It combines the features of a Wildcard SSL certificate with the higher level of validation provided by Organization Validation (OV) certificates.

Here’s how Wildcard SSL (OV) certificates work:

  1. Organization Validation (OV): Before issuing the certificate, the Certificate Authority (CA) verifies the ownership of the domain and conducts basic checks on the organization that owns the domain. This typically involves confirming the organization’s legal existence, physical address, and operational status. OV certificates provide a higher level of assurance and trust compared to Domain Validated (DV) certificates.
  2. Wildcard Feature: Similar to standard Wildcard SSL certificates, Wildcard SSL (OV) certificates can secure a main domain and all its subdomains using a single certificate. For example, a Wildcard SSL (OV) certificate for “*.example.com” can secure “www.example.com,” “mail.example.com,” “blog.example.com,” and any other subdomains of “example.com.”

Wildcard SSL (OV) certificates are suitable for organizations that have a main domain with multiple subdomains and want to ensure the security of all their online properties while providing a higher level of trust and credibility to their website visitors. They offer the convenience of securing multiple subdomains under a single certificate while also providing the additional validation and assurance of OV certificates.

Like other OV certificates, Wildcard SSL (OV) certificates may display the organization’s name prominently in the certificate details, but they typically do not display the organization’s name in the browser’s address bar. Instead, they show a padlock icon to indicate a secure connection.
