Your question, our answers

  • What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate?

    Wildcard SSLs secure your entire website, including the primary domain name and all of its subdomains. For example, a single Wildcard Certificate can secure, and

    Wildcard SSLs protect websites just like regular SSL certificates, using the same encryption and validation methods. However, some web servers might require a unique IP address for each subdomain on the Wildcard Certificate.

    Wildcard Certificates are available in Domain Validation (DV) and Organization Validation (OV), but not Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificates.

  • Who should get Wildcard SSLs?

    Since a single Wildcard Certificate secures as many subdomains as needed, they're ideal for any website with subdomains to protect.
  • What are the advantages of Wildcard SSL Certificates?

    There are several advantages to using Wildcard SSLs:

    • There’s no limit to how many subdomains you can protect. A Wildcard Certificate covers unlimited subdomains under a single certificate.

    • If you have a website with multiple subdomains to secure, it costs less to buy one Wildcard Certificate than multiple individual certificates.

    • It is much faster and easier to install one Wildcard Certificate than multiple single certificates. And don’t forget this process repeats itself when renewal time comes around.

  • What are subdomains?

    Subdomains are extensions of your domain name that you can use as a shortcut to specific sections of your website. For example, you could create a subdomain for a picture gallery on called "pics." In this case the subdomain would be Subdomains make it easy for customers to go straight to the part of your site they love most, without clicking through from your home page.
  • What is the longest term I can get with a Wildcard SSL?

    Wildcard Certificates, either Domain (DV) or Organization Validated (OV), are available in 1-year, 2-year or 3-year terms. The Certificate Authority sets this.
