Certification authority Thawte

CA Thawte - brand, tradition and quality

The THAWTE Certification Authority is a pioneer in the certificate industry. From a garage company founded in 1995, it has become one of the most respected certification authorities in the world.

The THAWTE (read "thought") certification authority was founded by Mark Shuttleworth in South Africa (history of CA Thawte on the Wiki). He originally planned to develop a secure web server that would not be restricted by the US embargo on encryption technologies. The new server was called Sioux and was based on the Apache system. However, at the time Netscape was developing SSL, Mark soon realised the potential and possibilities of SSL certificates and developed the company extensively, and within 4 years Thawte had gained a market share of almost 50%. Therefore, a buyout offer came on the table from VeriSign, which, in addition to managing the domain business, also issued SSL certificates and had the entire PKI infrastructure. In 1999, Thawte was sold for $575 million (VeriSign acquires Thawte Consulting of South Africa for $575 million).

With the sale of VeriSign, the CA continued to offer SSL certificates, still under its own brand. Since 2010, with Symantec's acquisition of VeriSign's PKI division, Thawte, along with other CAs such as GeoTrust and RapidSSL, have moved under the Symantec CA group. As Symantec's CA went through a dynamic period in 2017 when it had to deal with Google's requirements to restore trustworthiness to its services, all the CAs were acquired by DigiCert in 2017.

The Thawte Certificate Authority, or rather the Thawte brand, still continues to issue quality SSL certificates.

Domain Validated SSL certificates

SSL certificates issued in minutes

The applicant for the SSL certificate is verified by sending an e-mail message to the selected e-mail. According to the rules there are fixed addresses to choose from admin@, administrator@, webmaster@, hostmaster@ or postmaster@. We recommend creating one of the addresses, or having it set as an alias, ev. use the domain basket and retrieve the confirmation e-mail from it.
Instead of e-mail confirmation, alternative validation offers inserting a TXT record into a DNS domain zone or a text file into the data space on the server (FTP). We support both alternative verification methods and are set in the order detail.

Note i: It is not possible to send a validation email to a personal address e.g.
Note ii: WildCard SSL supports only e-mail or DNS validation.

Company Validated SSL certificates

Company Certificate increasing user trust in your website and its credibility

Verification of the applicant for an OV/EV SSL certificate is based on the CA/B Forum guidelines and each CA must follow the set process.
First, the domain is validated as for domain SSL certificates. Next, the existence of the company is verified and the address is checked. If the Authority can not confirm legal, operational and physical existence the validation time is extended. The final validation is done by a phone call to a phone number that is traceable in public authority databases.

CA Thawte verifies that the organization requesting a certificate is in good standing. This includes confirming good standing and active registration in corporate registries. It also includes verifying that the organization is not listed in any fraud, phishing, or government restricted entities, or anti-terrorism databases. Additionally, it verifies that the organization requesting a certificate is the organization to which the certificate will be issued and also verifies the organization's contact.

Note i: It is not possible to send a validation email to a personal address e.g.
Note ii: EV SSL are more consistently validated. In addition to the existence of the company, the applicant (contact) for the certificate is also verbally verified.

Multi-Year Certificates

We offer SSL certificates for up to 5 years in order to provide the lowest cost per year

As of 1 September 2020, Apple, Google and Mozilla browsers and devices do not accept new SSL/TLS certificates that have a lifetime of more than 398 days. To comply with the latest security requirements, multi-year SSL certificates are issued for 1 year (max. 398 days). You'll need to re-issue the certificate once per year. We'll send you email notifications starting 30 days before expiration. Of course, REISSUE is free of charge. Plus you can reissue your certificate at any time and as many times as you like!

After the certificate is issued, you cannot shorten the period of validity, ask for a refund of the unused period! If you decide to get a multi-year SSL certificate, we recommend that you consider whether you will use it for the entire period.

Note i: Re-issue requires revalidation.
Note ii: You can insert new CSR or use last one during reissue.
