Verify My Certificate Request (Standard Assurance)

After you request a Standard Assurance SSL certificate, we verify that you control the domain name in your request by checking your GoWebsite account and publicly available records in the WHOIS database.

We also request some customers manually verify that they control their domain names. For information on that process, see Verify domain ownership (HTML or DNS).

How long does the process take?

Usually the verification process takes less than 1 business day. However, manual verification processes are dependent on the user completing the task.
