Verify my certificate request (Standard Assurance)
After you request a Standard Assurance SSL certificate, we verify that you control the domain name in your request by checking your GoDaddy account and sending verification emails to standard email addresses.
In order to verify your certificate request via email, you must have one of the following email addresses set up: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not currently have one of these email addresses set up, create the email address, and we will send you a verification link within 24 hours.
We also request some customers manually verify that they control their domain names. For information on that process, see Verify domain ownership (HTML or DNS).
How long does the process take?
Usually the verification process takes less than 1 business day. However, manual verification processes are dependent on the user completing the task.
If you're looking for help understanding what we need you to do next, you can find our support number in your SSL control panel. It displays on the right under the progress indicator.
After verifying you control the domain name, your next step depends on where you're using the certificate:
|VPS or dedicated server you control||Download my SSL certificate files|
|Any other GoDaddy product||We'll finish the SSL installation for you as long as the SSL is on the primary domain of the hosting product.|
