    Logo in the SSL Certificate

    Hello,
    I recently installed an SSL certificate for our company webstite. How do I get to show the logo on my company in the SSL certificate like other companies do?
    What is the easiest way?

    A few examples below:

    Please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Those are called Extended Validation (EV) certificates and they usually run a bit more than standard SSL certificates.

    Looks expensive.
    How does it work?
    Is the installation similar to other SSL certificates?

    Installation is exactly the same as any other cert.

    You simply just pay more and they give you a signed EV cert.

    The logo is probably just from a normal favicon on a webpage..

    Nice.
    What if I already have a 'Standard SSL' certificate already installed?
    Will I still need it (Standard SSL)?
    Can I use both?

    Please advise.

    With most providers, you can just ask to upgrade it for $$$ and they will re-issue the cert based on your previous CSR.

    there are sooo many different types of SSL certs now. Its becoming a joke.

    Is it possible to have more than one installed for the same website?

    Thanks.

    I just heard that I don't really need the EV Cert unless I want the address bar to be green.
    EV cert is not responsible for your logo in the address bar. That is a favicon.ico file in the root on the hosting for the site.

    In the first picture, you highlighted the favicon. That has nothing to do with SSL.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon
    [GB ≠ GiB] [MB ≠ MiB] [kB ≠ kiB] [1000 ≠ 1024] [Giga ≠ gram] [Mega ≠ milli] [Kelvin ≠ kilo] [Byte ≠ bit]
    There is no millibit. There is no gram-bit. There is no Kelvin-Byte.

    You are right; I was a little confused because I thought it had something to do with it. Also coincidentally, most of the sites that use favicon also have SSL.
    Thanks for the help.
