What SSL Certificate types are on offer from Geotrust?

There is a range of SSL Certificates from Geo Trust that can first be categorized into three groups:
Domain Validated
The Domain Validated range is suitable for individuals or organizations needing an SSL Certificate fast and with a low cost. You will only be required to prove ownership of your domain name prior to the Certificate being issued. You can have your new SSL issued within 15 minutes from your ordering and configuration.
Business/Organisation Validated
The Business validated range is for organisations needing to provide that extra level of trust to their customers. It will show your validated business details in the certificate and provided Site Seal.
Extended Validated
The Extended Validation 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 show your organisation details to your customers, and let them know you have gone through an extensive verification process. The EV range also has the highest warranty on offer from GeoTrust.
You then have the Certificate to choose from, for the features you require:
Single Domain
This will secure a single domain name. If you secure the root domain, it will also secure the www-version of your domain for free. Example: It will secure domain.com and www.domain.com
Wildcard
This Certificate will allow you to secure your main domain (domain.com) and unlimited sub-domains (*.domain.com). So it is a great choice when you have multiple sites or services such as: mail.domain.com, ftp.domain.com, shop.domain.com, blog.domain.com etc.
Multi-Domain
When you have multiple domains, or sub-domains, a Multi-Domain SSL will allow you to secure them all without having to issue multiple certificates. You can secure completely different domains under different TLDs, or sub-domains under the same root. Some are also compatible with wildcards to allow for unlimited sub-domains. You could secure: domain.com, domain.com.au, sub.domain.co.nz, *.domain.com

A Short History. What is GeoTrust?

The GeoTrust Inc Security business started in 2001 and grew fast to become one of the Global Certificate Authority Leaders with a large offering of Security Products. 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 larger Security brands allowed for their growth in their product range with broader use and recognition.

They are now a highly trusted brand which their Site Seals easily recognisable and associated with secured websites.
