Let Your Online Visitors Know You're The Real Deal! Thanks to phishing, pharming, and a long list of other scams, Web visitors grow more wary by the day. But there is something you can do to reassure them you're one of the good guys: Put a Certified Domain validation seal on your website.
Distinctive seal displayed on your website and WhoIsWho listing shows visitors and potential customers that you are the legal originator of your domain name. The validation process is simple and can generally be completed in 10 minutes, with the Certified Domain seal issued to your site within 1 business day. Our Certified Domain seal is dynamic - difficult to forge!
What is a Certified Domain? A Certified Domain lets people know that we have formally certified the domain's registration. A Certified Domain provides visible evidence (in the form of the Domain Origination Certified seal) that a domain has been validated and its registrant's credentials have been verified. For this reason a Certified Domain is useful to owners of business websites and other sites that offer transactions and other activities of a sensitive nature. All site owners, however, can improve their site's legitimacy and trustworthiness by displaying the Domain Origination Certified seal.
Adding a Certified Domain validation seal to existing domains You can add domain certification to your domain in one of 3 ways:
1. ‡ Certified Domain can be purchased directly through our main menu. When you purchase this service directly, you are asked for the domain name (whether already registered or a new registration) for which the certification will be requested. When you complete the purchase, we automatically issue a request for validation of the domain and the certification process is on its way.
2. From the Domain Manager, you can upgrade an existing domain to include domain certification. You can apply a previously-purchased domain certification credit to a domain that you currently have registered with us. To use a previously-purchased domain certification credit and request a certificate:
3. Log in to your Account Manager. Click Certified Domains. Click Setup Account next to the New Account you want to use. In the Domain field, enter the domain name you want to certify. Click OK twice to complete the request. Regardless of the method used to request domain certification, the verification process starts immediately.
