Here you can use a basic or standard SSL Certificate.
For any website that store sensitive information, personal detail or any online transactions, a higher level of protection is required to increase security and trust. An Organization Validation (OV) SSL Certificate is the best solution for these types of website that contain the verified name of the entity. A Certificate Authority checks the official name of the organization and physical presence through third party.
