EV Extended Validation

When you purchase an SSL Certificate that has EV (extended Validation) then what happens is that high security browsers will show a green url bar.  The purpose of this is to increase your customers confidence when purchasing from a website or logging into a financial website.  A confident customer is more apt to make a purchase.

Many CA (Caertificate Authorities) offer EV SSL certificates.  For example;

  • Thawte
  • VeriSign
  • Comodo
  • GeoTrust
