What documents do I need for Thawte?

Extended Validated SSLs are the ones that come with the strictest process of checks to confirm the identity of the organization. They differ from Organization certificates in terms of the certification process, as in EV SSL it is dictated by the Certification Authority Browser Forum and includes 6 + 1 levels, which require the submission of documents for:

  1. The exclusive ownership of the domain name.

Because, Thawte states that it also performs a whois check on the domain, in order to confirm that the applicant's name and address are the same as that of the domain owner. You will therefore need to request written confirmation in English of the owner of your domain, from the same registrar you have purchased it from.

  1. The headquarters of the organization.

There is a possibility that they will do a telephone confirmation, so if there is any of your site up in the air, your company's address and phone information will need to be valid.

  1. Natural and legal status.

You may need a copy of your business phone or electricity bill.

  1. Functionality.
