What is the Certified Domain Authorization and Validation Process?

Last Updated: July 9, 2007 12:02 PM

The Certified Domain authorization and validation process serves to verify that the certificate requester is the registrant of the domain for which the certificate is being requested and that the Whois database contains accurate and valid contact information for the Administrative, Technical, and Registrant contacts. The process also includes a fraud screening.

Note: The Certified Domain authorization and validation process must be completed every two years for all Certified Domain holders.
