DV SSL (Domain Validated SSL certificate) encrypts the data between a web browser and a server. It is the lowest validation level, therefore it does not provide ownership information and COMODO is not checking the legitimacy of the company, it is being issued to.
This is the required information for getting DV SSL :
DV certificates are generally inexpensive. Issuance of DV SSLs is an automated process, which allows Certificate Authorities to reduce their price.
While checking the WHOIS database for ownership information on a domain, the corporate identity of that organization is not involved in that process. In other words Certification Authorities will not check who is the organization, standing behind a certain website. Simplifying the purchase procedure for DV SSLs, to just having a domain name, puts a risk for customers who trust and shop on websites, using this type of SSL. GetSSL always recommend buying high assurance certificates for your company.
