What is domain control validation?

Before we can issue an SSL certificate for a domain name, we must verify the person requesting the certificate controls the domain name. This process ensures we only issue certificates to the domain's controller.

To validate domain control, we let you choose one of these methods: a domain authorization email, domain authorization letter, or a domain control email.

NOTE: Multiple Domain UCC SSLs automatically send out a domain authorization email. Contact customer support to request alternate validation methods.

If a private registration service protects your contact information in the Whois database, contact your domain registrar to set up email forwarding. If you cannot or do not receive the email, contact our customer support team to request an alternate validation method.

If we do not receive your approval, we deny the request.
