Address for SSL Certificate registration
« on: August 12, 2014, 07:48:38 AM »
Hi,

I would like to get a SSL certificate for my personal website, which is hosted by Lunarpages. My website domain has anonymous domain registration to prevent my personal home address from being exposed. In order to request the SSL certificate, I need to provide an address. Do you I need to provide my personal home address, or may I use the anonymous domain address, which is Lunarpages' address: 1360 N Hancock St., Anaheim, CA 92807?

Thank you.

Here is a follow-up to my original post. I sent this question  to support@lunarpages.com. The response I received was: You would need to use your personal address for the SSL certificate.

Hmm. That's not good if the address is exposed to the public, such as with whois. I can see a need for a domain registrar to know your actual name and address, in case they (or the authorities) need to track you down, but do SSL certificate issuers ever need to contact you? Is that information automatically hidden from the general public, regardless of whether you use anonymization for your domain registration itself, or is it at least hidden if your domain is hidden? This needs to be clarified.

Thanks for that. Just to clarify, so to get an SSL certificate, information like address needs to be published as well? I mean, are there any way to get around this?
