Difference between types of SSL certificates, issue process time of each

SSL Certificates provide security by encrypting communications between a server and a person visiting your website. SSL helps protect sensitive information exchanged between your panel and users: passwords, private data, financial information, etc.

Domain Validated Certificate (DV)

For situations when a general public visits a secure section of your site (e.g., making a payment by credit card), you need to use a private SSL certificate such as this one. It is directly tied to your domain name, letting customers know they are on a correct website.

Difference between Wildcard and non-Wildcard certificate. A Wildcard SSL Certificate enables SSL encryption on unlimited subdomains using a single certificate. The subdomains must have the same second level domain name (i.e. domain.com).

Company Validated Certificate (OV)

A company validated certificate is similar to a domain validated certificate; however, additional documentation must be provided to certify your company's identity.
