Why opt for a SAN Wildcard Certificate

The biggest advantage of a Wildcard SAN is the ability to secure both domains and subdomains with a single OV certificate. It doesn’t matter if you need to secure IP addresses, domains, internal domains or sub domains, the Wildcard SAN certificate can secure any combination of up to 100 domains and subdomains – meaning you can forget the hassle of installing, managing and renewing multiple SSL certificates.

Another advantage of the Wildcard SAN option is that the certificate is Organisation Validated (OV), which means visitors can verify your site’s legitimacy quickly and conveniently without ever having to leave the browser.

On top of this, if you wish to secure additional domains or subdomains later in the future, it can be secured by the same certificate so you can keep adding up to a maximum of 100 domains and sub-domains at no extra charge or administration.

This solution is an incredibly flexible addition to your web security portfolio. Multiple services can be covered with one certificate; as long as the Common Name (CN) of this certificate is not a Wildcard. This means one single certificate will, for example, secure an email server, a remote service, a domain and more.

Example:

CN (Common Name): www.example.com Regular SAN: dev.example.com Wildcard SAN option 1: *.support.example.com Wildcard SAN option 2: *.test.example.com

And since it is only one certificate, you only need to go through the vetting process once, which makes it one of the most convenient and manageable certificates on the market.

Key Features:

  • Greater SSL flexibility
  • Reduced administrative costs
  • Simplified SSL certificate management
  • Effortlessly secure (100 maximum) FQDNs and subdomains
  • Secure multiple services under a single OV certificate
  • Requires only one vetting process
