Wildcard SSL certificates guard your website URL including an endless number of subdomains related to the main domain. For example, you could secure www.forexample.com, tool.forexample.com, me.forexample.com with one certificate. Wildcard certificates guard the main domain name and all subdomains at the domain level, the organization level you specify. You can choose the security of your domain or go up higher to OV and EV when you submit your request. Just insert an asterisk (*) to the left of the main domain name while submitting your request in the subdomain area.

Wildcard SSL certificates guard websites similar to the regular SSL certificates. Your SSL requests are issued using the same validation processes. Still, some web servers may need customers to get a unique IP address for each subdomain while using a Wildcard certificate. Install a wildcard certificate to strengthen your domain and countless sub-domains just with one SSL certificate purchase. If you have many sub-domains to secure, then ordering one Wildcard SSL can save you a lot of money. It is better to buy one certificate vs. the cost of getting many individual SSL certificates.

Getting Wildcard SSL Certificates have helped businesses get one certificate to secure all their sub-domains. It will save you money rather than get each of your tens of subdomains one SSL each. It also saves time having to manage only a single certificate. Wildcard certificates give you the same protection, work the same way as a regular SSL Certificate. It allows you to secure connection between your customer’s Internet browser and all your websites with your sub-domains. A single certificate will incorporate all of the sub-domains of your primary domain.
