Documents Required for GeoTrust Domain Validation SSL Certificates
To validate a domain, GeoTrust will either go with domain registrar’s information or it will go with file based verification.
Verification from domain registrar, GeoTrust will ask to display the Whois information of that domain which much include following details.
- Organization Name (Registered during CSR generation)
- Organization Address
If the above details not match with the SSL order details then GeoTrust will disapprove the issuance request, so better option is to update the domain registrar information before issuance.
If the domain registrar information kept as private, GeoTrust will disapprove the issuance request. So a better option is to turn domain registrar information as public.
