Domain Validation (DV) TLS/SSL Certificate
What are Domain Validated SSL Certificates?
A Domain Validated SSL certificate is issued after proof that the owner has the right to use their domain is established. This is typically done by Comodo sending an email to the domain owner (as listed in a WHOIS database). Once the owner responds, the certificate is issued. The certificate only contains the domain name. Because of the minimal checks performed, this certificate is typically issued quicker than other types of certificates. While the browser displays a padlock, examination of the certificate will not show the company name as this was not validated.
