Company Validated Certificate, What is the Benefit?

The biggest advantage of a WHOIS Company Validated SSL certificate is the way your site looks in a browser. With a Company Validated Certificate, the company's (or site owner's) name and address is displayed as part of the certificate.

In modern browsers, all or part of the address bar turns blue when using SSL. If a visitor clicks on the domain name (or the lock icon in some browsers), it will show who the site is registered to rather than saying unknown. Identification of the the site owner will make some visitors more trusting of your website. More validation leads to more trust and confidence in the security of your site.
