    What is it? What does it do? Can users actually see that you have it apart from if you stick it on the website?

    PS: I dont mean a SSL certificate.

    A Certified Domain provides visible evidence (in the form of the Domain Origination Certified seal) that a domain has been validated and its registrant's credentials have been verified. For this reason a Certified Domain is useful to owners of business websites and other sites that offer transactions and other activities of a sensitive nature. All site owners, however, can improve their site's legitimacy and trustworthiness by displaying the Domain Origination Certified seal.

    It is cow dung IMHO. If you are talking about SSL certificates, GD is a provider.. Other stuffs? Cow dung... Let me just quote my previous poster:
    Not trying to hurt him by any mean, but wtf man? You mean other domains might be fake? ICANN controls every domain. They even have service where you can report fake WHOIS data. It is total cow dung. Do not invest into it..

    OP: If you want something secure, get an SLL cert and advertise the seal on your site.

    Thank you for this! You guys b*tching at each other has made it much easier to understand actually. I am with Gogol on this one, I did want a outside perspective to see if the service was actually worth investing to in too, I did have a strong feeling it was money grabbing BS which had no value.

    Thanks guys, have a kiss and make up!

    Another piece of useless stuff from GoDaddy, don't buy it. It is of no value. Just certifies that the website owner is the actual owner of the domain WTF!
