Company Validated Certificate, What is the Benefit?

The biggest advantage of a WHOIS Company Validated SSL certificate is how your site looks in a browser. With a Company Validated SSL Certificate, the company's (or site owner's) name and address is displayed as part of the certificate.

In modern browsers, all or part of the address bar turns blue when using SSL. If a visitor clicks on the domain name (or the lock icon in some browsers), it will show who the site is registered to rather than saying unknown. Identifying the site owner will make some visitors more trusting of your website. More validation leads to more trust and confidence in the security of your site.

Sectigo SSL Certificate

Sectigo certificates enable you and your customers to complete transactions with the assurance that no one else can read or change information as it travels over the internet. This leads to an increased visitor conversion rate, lower website abandonment, and an increase in the average purchase price.
