  • Upload a verification file to your domain’s hosting account

Organisation Validation (OV)

Paperwork is required – domain ownership and organisation details needed.

  • Either receive an email or upload a verification file (domain ownership)
  • Ensure your DUNS number has your organisation’s current phone number
  • Make sure the domain name has your organisation’s name shown in WHOIS
  • Send off supporting documentation (ASIC Certificate, etc) when requested
  • Receive verification call and confirm certificate – issuance shortly after

Extended Validation (EV)

Paperwork is required – domain ownership, organisation details & contract needed.

  • Either receive an email or upload a verification file (domain ownership)
  • Ensure your DUNS number has your organisation’s current phone number
  • Make sure the domain name has your organisation’s name shown in WHOIS
  • Send off supporting documentation (ASIC Certificate, etc) when requested
  • Complete agreements and return to the Certificate Authority (no mistakes!)

All of our offered certificates are compatible with the major browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer & Apple Safari). There won’t be any compatibility issues across 99.9% of browsers.

You have the option to opt for a 4096-bit key length as opposed to the more standard 2048-bit. While this will boost security and is recommended, we recommend ensuring that your certificate functions as expected once installed.

SSL certificates can be installed on to services using a shared IP address through functionality known as SNI (Server Name Indication). These days, the majority of browsers and devices support SNI, removing the old-fashioned requirement of a static IP address.

If you’re going to need a static IP address for your new SSL certificate, we’re able to provide one provided you host the secured domain name with us. If you host the domain elsewhere, your provider should be happy to assist.

The cost of a static IP address is $50/year inc GST. On request, we can set the IP’s rDNS/PTR record for you too.

n.b. Multi-domain certificates include up to 3 domains. More can be added during checkout.
