VeriSign Trust Seal



The VeriSign Trust Seal assures Internet users that your web site is safe.

The Trust Seal provides assurance at a broader scale and in a different setting than SSL certificates. It appears in search engine results in enabled browsers, and appears on every page of your web site. It announces-before search engine users even visit your web site-that VeriSign has verified your business and that your web site has passed a daily malware scan.

If your web site uses an SSL certificate to transmit sensitive information securely, it benefits from the added assurance that the Trust Seal provides on every page and in search results.

If your web site does not need an SSL certificate, it still benefits from the Trust Seal by showing search engine users and site visitors that it represents a reputable business.


The VeriSign Trust Seal can be applied to any web site, whether or not the domain name is registered or hosted with us.

If a customer configures the Trust Seal with an administrator contact designated as an individual rather than an organization, the administrator's address must be in the United States.
