How long will validation take?

This largely depends on the type of certificate that you purchased and your response times. No matter which type of certificate that you purchase, the Certificate Authority (CA) will be contacting you directly and will only proceed with next steps upon your response. For Domain Validated (DV) certificates, these can typically be issued in a matter of minutes to one business day. For Organization Validated (OV) certificates, these tend to take around 2-3 business days to be issued. And for Extended Validation (EV) certificates, these usually take between 3-5 business days to be issued.

I haven’t received my Domain Control Validation email (DCV) yet. What should I do?

There are a few reasons why this might be the case. First, verify what email address you have chosen for the Doman Control Validation email (please note: this is different from the contact information provided during the generation process). If you need to change your DCV email, you can use any email on the Whois registration for that domain or one of the five following pre-approved alias email: Admin@domain.com Administrator@domain.com Hostmaster@domain.com Postmaster@domain.com Webmaster@domain.com Also, make sure to check the Spam or Junk Mail folder of your email provider.
