Is it the right time to buy SSL Certificate Indonesia? SSL Certificate is used by eCommerce owners to secure communication between their web server and browsers of customers or potential buyers. Choosing the right certificate can be a tough task since there are many things to take into consideration. One of the important factors to consider is the level of the certificate itself. In general, there are three levels of best SSL Certificate: Domain Validation (DV) Certificate, Organization Validation (OV) Certificate, and Extended validation (EV) Certificate.

Validation level of the SSL Certificate refers to the extent of checks that the Certificate Authority does to verify the identity of a person or organization who buys the SSL Certificate. Certificate Authority or CA is a third-party organization that will issue your certificate. This party is trusted by CA membership programs of different electronic devices, operating systems, and browsers.

You can take a look at how each type of SSL Certificate is validated, so you can recognize it in your browser.

Domain Validation (DV) Certificate

Validation Process

Compared to OV and EV Certificates, DV Certificate has the lowest validation level. A certificate is issued within minutes since the validation process is simple. CA doesn’t look into information about the identity of the company running a website when issuing a DV Certificate. CA just need to verify your domain name ownership through email approval.

What It Looks Like

If your website is secured with DV Certificate, internet users can see HTTPS and padlock symbol on the address bar browser. Everyone can click on the padlock to view certificate detail, but it is limited.

Pros and Cons

Due to a less rigorous verification process, DV certificates are issued quickly. You can immediately secure your website with this certificate type. Aside from that, it is also known as the cheapest option. Small websites and blogs that don’t deal with sensitive data storage can use this certificate. If you want a DV certificate that is issued by Sectigo, you can consider Sectigo Domain Validated Certificate or Sectigo PositiveSSL Certificate.

Organization Validation (OV) Certificate

Validation

Aside from verifying domain name ownership, CA also needs to verify the business credentials of the applicant and the accuracy of its physical and web address.

What It Looks Like

Internet users can see HTTPS as a prefix of URL and padlock symbol which become your website security indicators. When they click on the padlock, it will display certificate details including name, address, and country of company that owns the domain.

Pros and Cons

OV Certificate is considered more trustworthy than DV Certificate because people can gather more info about SSL holders. This seems like an ideal choice for e-commerce sites. Unfortunately, verification takes several days, so it can’t be issued as fast as DV Certificate. You can choose Sectigo InstantSSL Certificate or any other SSL product from trusted CAs.

Extended Validation (EV) Certificate

Validation Process

EV Certificate provides the highest level of certificate. When issuing this certificate type, CA does extensive background checks on domain owning organization, validating its ownership, legal existence, physical location, and more.

What It Looks Like

Pros and Cons

A green bar that clearly displays your organization name makes customers and users have no doubt about the security and trustworthiness of your website.
