From an encryption standpoint, there is no discernable difference between a Standard Domain Validation SSL and an Extended Validation purchased through Zipline Interactive. These certificates all use the latest encryption standards and will maintain the security of your web application. While the technical encryption is the same there are a lot of real differences between the SSL options we provide in terms of prices and features.  Below is a comparison of the key features and the price point at each certificate level.

The primary benefit of the Extended Validation (EV) SSL over the Domain Validation SSL is the added security for the consumer. When obtaining an Extended Validation SSL you will be required to go through a business verification process where you will work with the 3rd party SSL company to prove your business identity. Once this is complete, your SSL will be issued and when installed it will not only encrypt the connection between your users and the website, the green bar will offer peace of mind that both the connection is secure and the identity of the company has been thoroughly vetted and verified. You will also receive the added benefit of an increased warranty coverage that comes along with the EV SSL that covers any fraudulent activity due to a faulty SSL product or encryption. 


*Note: All warranties are provided by the 3rd party SSL provider and are not a warranty through Zipline Interactive.

**Note: We offer other certificate types like multi-domain SSLs or wildcard SSLs at each certificate level for special needs. If you need one of those contact us for current information and pricing.
