Order an SSL certificate with WC subdomain protection. This is a convenient solution if you have a main site with a large number of subdomains of the same level. For example, shop.example.com, support.example.com, news.example.com
An SSL Certificate with Wildcard (WC) protects the main domain and all of its subdomains of the same level.
For example, one certificate from WC can be used for example.com, shop.example.com, support.example.com, news.example.com, and so on.
The easiest and fastest to get. It is issued within a few minutes of the order. Provides an initial level of trust and does not confirm the legitimacy of the site owner's business.
OV certificate can be issued only for one organization. It takes from a few hours to three days to receive. Provides a basic level of trust for users.
It's cheaper to install a wildcard (WC) certificate than to buy individual SSLs if you have many subdomains.
Easier to manage
One certificate – one installation and one renewal for a domain and its subdomains.
Easily connect new subdomains
You can create a subdomain at the protected level anytime and it will automatically be covered by SSL.
Wildcard - This type of certificate allows you to protect the main domain and an unlimited number of next-level subdomains.
No, a WC certificate only protects the main domain and subdomains of the same level.
When you order a WC certificate, you choose the subdomain level it will protect. This level is indicated by an asterisk ( * ) in front of the domain. For example, a certificate issued for *.google.com will work for:
But it will not work for subdomains such as:
However, you can specify multiple wildcard values in a certificate with the SANWC (SAN Wildcard) option. This allows you to protect subdomains at multiple selected levels at once, or even the subdomains of different domains.
