For companies, Hostpoint still recommends the use of SSL certificates with Organization Validation (OV) or Extended Validation (EV). These not only encrypt the data traffic but simultaneously confirm the identity of the website operator and thereby underscore the operator's trustworthiness. Web shops in particular can gain the customer's trust even before a purchase is made. In the Extended Validation SSL certificate, this credibility is also signaled prominently by the green-colored address line in the web browser.
Detailed information about the various SSL certificate types can be found under "What types of validation are available?".
