In general, email validation is the most convenient method.
Secure Trust can validate your domain(s) by sending an email message to the domains' administrators.
You enter the code as a TXT resource record, which is an informational type of DNS resource record.
Secure Trust then checks your DNS record for the code, which will prove that the person who controls the DNS record for your domain(s) also authorized the certificate request.
We can accept the following types of documentation: If your business has no legal documentation, or you would like to use your own personal name on your digital certificate, we will need a copy of your driver's license, government-issued identification, or passport.
Your personal name will appear on the digital certificate.
If you choose this method, you select who receives the email from a set of email addresses that includes addresses listed in the domain's DNS SOA record.
When the email is received, all the person who receives it must do is to click a link in the email.
