DV and OV SSL certificates from most brands are issued for a maximum of 3 years.

What is domain control validation?

CAs need to confirm domain ownership by sending an email to the contact details listed with the domain’s registrar. If the listed administrator of the domain does not reply to the first email, a second email is sent. The second email from the CA is sent to the email address that is created with the domain such as info@domain.com or support@domain.com. (You are given a choice to give a secondary email address for verification during the enrollment process.)

How do visitors know if websites are secured by Domain Validation SSL Certificates?

A browser connecting to a secure website retrieves the site’s SSL Certificate. It checks whether or not the SSL has expired. The browser checks whether the SSL has been issued by a trusted certificate authority. It also checks whether the certificate is being used for the domain that it has been purchased for. If any one of these checks are not satisfied, the browser warns the end user by giving them a “not secure” warning. If a browser succeeds to get the security indicators
