Geotrust SSL/TLS Certificate Types: Full Summary

There is a range of SSL Certificates from GeoTrust that can best be categorized into three groups:
Domain Validated

The GeoTrust Domain Validated certs are suitable for individuals or organizations that require an SSL certificate fast and with a low cost - issued within 5-10 minutes of a completed order. Additionally, you will only be required to prove your domain name's ownership before issuance of the SSL certificates.

Business/Organisation Validated

The GeoTrust Business Validation range is for organisations that want to be considered trustworthy. This SSL will show your validated business details (such as your geolocation) in the SSL certificates, with the Site Seal showcasing extra information where needed.

Extended Validated

The GeoTrust True BusinessID Extended Validation SSL certificate range is suitable for organisations needing to show their visitors that they are a business in good standing and with all the appropriate registrations. It will let your clients know you have gone through an extensive verification process. This kind of SSL certificate also has the highest warranty on offer from GeoTrust.

You then have the specific SSL product to choose from, depending on the features you need:
Single Domain

These SSL Certificates will secure a single domain name. If you connect the root domain, it will also ensure the www-version of your domain is secured for free. Example: It will secure domain.com and www.domain.com. An excellent choice for simple services and websites, especially if the main concern is security rather than a specific feature.

Wildcard

These SSL Certificates will allow you to secure your main domain (domain.com) and any subdomain (*.domain.com). Perfect for multiple sites or services such as mail.domain.com, ftp.domain.com, shop.domain.com, blog.domain.com etc. They are available as the GeoTrust TrueBusinessID Wildcard or the QuickSSL Wildcard Certificate.

Multi Domain

When you have many domains or sub-domains, a GeoTrust Multi Domain SSL Certificate will allow you to secure them all at once. For example, you can secure completely different domains under different TLDs or sub-domains under the same root. Some are also compatible with wildcard SSL certificate products, allowing for complete subdomain coverage.
You could secure: domain.com, domain.com.au, sub.domain.co.nz, *.domain.com

How can you use a GeoTrust Certificate?

Being the industry standard x.509 Certificate, you can use the Geo Trust SSL Certificate for various purposes. They include ( but are not limited to ):

  • Securing your website and online transactions.
  • Securing NodeJS, ReactJS, and SaaS applications.
  • Secure mail, FTP, enterprise, and exchange servers.

A Short History of GeoTrust.

The GeoTrust Inc Security business started in 2001 and grew fast to become one of the Global Certificate Authority Leaders with an extensive offering of web security products in 150 countries. No matter their customer's geolocation, they became renowned for their excellent customer support.

In 2006 they were acquired by VeriSign, the largest Security Provider at the time, which brought them under the Symantec brand in 2010. The movement of GeoTrust under more prominent Security brands allowed for their growth in their product range with broader use and recognition.

They are now a highly trusted brand, and their Site Seals are easily recognizable and associated with secured websites. Recently (2017), GeoTrust Global CA have started to be managed under DigiCert, a pioneer in online security, allowing for faster business validation and a smoother process in the verification process to have your GeoTrust Certificate issued faster than most other competitors on the market.

How does GeoTrust compare to other Certificate Authorities?

Compared to other Certificate Authorities available today, GeoTrust Certificates are very well regarded as some of the best on the market. They may be a mid-tier provider, but they come close to being a premium one. And they are now managed by DigiCert, which we believe is the leader of Certificate Authorities.

GeoTrust is an excellent choice for any Organization or Individual who wants an affordable Certificate with the GeoTrust QuickSSL Premium, which will provide all the security you need with fast issuance.

If you want a bit more premium to provide further trust in your visitors, a higher warranty, and a few extra features, consider the True BusinessID range, with your business being verified no matter your geolocation. The True BusinessID range is our most popular Certificate range for educational institutions from all our offerings.

Their Root Certificates are installed in all major browsers, mobile devices and desktop systems, giving you an edge over some of the less-known and cheaper certificate authorities. As for management, you can request to have your GeoTrust certificates managed via your DigiCert Cert Central account, which is a great security solution to easily manage all of your Certificates.

So, you're after highly trusted SSL Security Certificates, great features, and a well-regarded issuing Authority that provides its products at affordable prices. In that case, GeoTrust India will be a good choice for you.

GeoTrust Trusted Root Certificates

Since December 1, 2017, GeoTrust Inc has been issuing all Certificates under their new Trusted Root TLS Certificate from DigiCert. This fresh Trusted Root enables trust in the highest majority of used browsers, clients and devices, ensuring your visitors and customers don't receive any security warnings while getting complete encryption.

Using a Geo Trust SSL TLS Intermediate Certificate to enhance the security of your SSL Certificate, you will have the choice of a complete chain SHA-2 which the industry is adapting as the new standard or an SHA-2 Certificate with SHA-1 Root for more excellent compatibility with older devices.

My company needed a code signing certificate as quickly as possible and had a tricky phone setup that was causing us a lot of grief with getting validation. Paul from SSL Trust helped us through it from the get-go with top notch support. Definitely recommend SSL Trust!

I was utterly and totally confused, even buying the wrong type of SSL Certificate that I needed. Trying to work out the intricacies of Wildcard SSL for 3 Servers has been a two week adventure into an area of Domain security that I have never had to venture into in the past.Spending money with our registrar for SSL certs was the wrong way to go first up.Once I found SSL Trust, purchasing and setting up SSL was easy, I just didn't know enough about Sub domains and wildcards to get the right one.Emailing SSL Trust to gain assistance and clarity on what I needed on a Friday evening and having the best support and advice come back within the hour was quite simply, refreshing and unexpected. A bit of back and forth between Paul and myself sorted out any questions I had and gave me the instructions to get exactly what I needed - outstanding!Paul organised for the incorrect SSL to be cancelled and credited which was a nice bonus and helped me feel better that I hadn't wasted money on the wrong certificate unlike the registrar who can't cancel or credit.I won't be doing a lot of SSL Certificates in the future but I have found the one company that I will use when I need to, SSL Trust!

GeoTrust FAQ

GeoTrust is powered by DigiCert, following Symantec's 2010 acquisition of the standalone GeoTrust brand. This umbrella company owns DigiCert, too. GeoTrust and DigiCert were subsequently effectively merged, though the two continue to operate as separate entities with separate brandings and niche targets.

GeoTrust is 100% safe to use across the board. GeoTrust is the Certificate Authority of choice for many incredibly prominent global enterprises, such as Volkswagen, Square Enix, Seagate, and Viber.
