Organization Validated certificates, or OV certificates, are a type of SSL technology that offers up to 256-bit encryption to websites of businesses and other registered organizations. The difference between OV certificates and domain validated (DV) certificates is that a little extra vetting is required to confirm that you not only own your domain but that your organization is also legit. But don’t fret! So long as your business is registered, the validation process isn’t a problem. In most cases, it only takes a couple of days and you’ll be all set.
