For a long time, this was the standard baseline in digital certificates. SSL evolved originally to protect data. SSL certificate design gradually grew to include validation of the business as well as security for the data. Today, even domain validation includes some evaluation. Digital SSL certificate providers will check that you have the right to secure the domain in question, hence the name domain validation.
Because this kind of validation takes the least work, domain validation are the cheapest SSL certificates you will find. But remember before you buy: digital certificate validation is important to customers as well as their actual data protection. You are not spending as much for domain validation and it will provide you with the same level of protection you get when you buy SSL certificates, but you are missing out on an added level of visitor confidence.
Unlike the types of validation above, wildcard SSL does not have a single level of user trust attached to it. Domain, organizational, and extended validation all have wildcard options available. The difference here is that a single wildcard SSL certificate purchase can cover multiple subdomains. Usually, you need to buy SSL certificate coverage for all subdomains individually. Considering the low cost of SSL certificates, if you have just one subdomain, that might not be too much of a hassle. But if you have got multiple subdomains, or plan to add more in the future, you are going to want to cover all of them with one SSL certificate. Buy a wildcard, and you are set.
These SSL client certificates cover an unlimited number of subdomains, and may even cover multiple sites on the same server. With this kind of certificate, you buy SSL once and you will not need to worry about further coverage. Although it is not hard to get SSL certificate coverage individually, buying wildcard simplifies the process. It is usually less expensive and it is exactly the same kind of coverage you would get from buying SSL certificate protection individually.
This is the second highest level of validation available. It provides the advantage of thorough comparison and vetting, but does not take quite as much time to process or dig quite as deeply into your company as extended validation. It will still provide a clickable link that gives information about your business, but it will not contain as much information as you would get with extended validation. If you want some company-level validation for your site, this type is a good buy. Certificate prices are lower than EV, but still very affordable through MaxServer.com.
This is the absolute highest level of security available to any website. The issuing companies will not just provide the data security your visitors demand; they will also carefully examine the documents that back up your company. The end result is that they go beyond simple data security and actually provide thorough verification. This might not seem like much, but keep in mind the mindset of a typical online customer. If they are buying online, they might have never heard of you before. They have no way to go out and validate your company themselves. If you have an extended validation cert, they know that the checking and validation has already been done.
