Currently, there are 8 (eight) types of SSL Certificates: Code Signing - Domain Validated - Extended Validation - Organization Validated - SAN - Self-Signed - SGC - Wildcard. Here are the most common types of SSL Certificates for business and their varying degrees of certification from the CA (Certificate Authorities).

DV SSL Certificate - Domain Validated

This certificate indicates that the CA has verified that the applicant owns the website's domain name and not the domain name's owner. The information can be viewed by the public when clicking on the SSL's Site Seal.

OV SSL Certificate - Organization Validated

This is the more preferred security for an online sales website, as it assures online visitors that the actual business itself has been verified by the CA, and the company details are shown on the certificate. It does take a little longer to be issued due to the submission of the company documentation to be validated by the CA.

EV SSL Certificate - Extended Validated

The EV SSL is the highest form of security for any website and is indicated by a green URL address bar in your browser*. This is most commonly used on e-Commerce websites. The company, company ownership documentation, as well as domain name ownership documentation must all be submitted and validated by the CA - here is the list of required documentation.
*Note: Ensure that you are using the most current version of your browser, as older browsers may not be able to display the green address bar.

Wildcard Certificate - for sub domains

Wildcard SSLs can be issued for DV & OV when you have multiple sub-domains that need to be secured. A sub-domain is a name followed by a dot, that precedes your domain name e.g. EXAMPLE.hosted

Other types of SSL certificates include: CS (Code Signing), SAN (Subject Alternative Name), SGC (Server-Gated Cryptography) and SS (Self-Signed) - more information on these can be found here.
