Which variant is the right one?
Depending on the scope of validation and the desired information in the certificate, GLOBALTRUST® offers different quality levels:
- GLOBALTRUST® SERVER OV:
The standard variant for businesses shows the verified organization name
- GLOBALTRUST® SERVER EV:
These certificates are considered particularly trustworthy and are ranked first in search engines. Browsers display the address bar or part of it in green on HTTPS pages with so-called “Extended Validation” (EV) certificates and provide additional information about the issuer. There is a particularly strict check of the organizational registration and applicant identity. In addition to the company or authority name, the company registration number or a comparable number, business category and a reference to the legal system at the company’s headquarters are entered. Optionally, the legally binding company address including zip code can also be included. Banks, insurance companies and public authorities have been relying on them for years. Currently they are increasingly used by online stores and eCommerce providers and replace the often questionable “quality seals” and store ratings.
- GLOBALTRUST® SERVER QUALIFIED:
The expert variant for maximum trust: in addition to the strict EV criteria, an eIDAS-compliant review of the applicant is carried out. The certificate is – in addition to the EV information – also shown as an EU qualified certificate for website authentication (QWAC).
- GLOBALTRUST® SERVER PSD 2:
eIDAS-compliant special variant can be used for open banking solutions by the special entries of licensed payment service providers.
How many domain names can be certified?
- single domain: Secures one domain name or IP address. GLOBALTRUST® also provides www.example.com and mail.example.com free of charge upon customer request in addition to example.com.
- Multi-Domain: Secures example1.com, example2.com… Up to 250 domain names can be entered here.
