All About Wildcard SSL

Last Updated: Aug 24, 2016 05:39PM CDT

A Wildcard SSL Certificate enables SSL encryption on multiple subdomains using a single certificate. Subdomains on the certificate must all share the same primary domain.

For instance, example.com, www.example.com, blog.example.com, store.example.com and billing.example.com could all be secured using the same wildcard SSL, as they all use the same primary domain. However, billing.yoursitesdomain.com could not be used with this certificate, as it is using a different primary domain.

A Small Orange offers SSL certificates from Comodo, providing a range of options to secure and protect your sites.

The Positive Wildcard SSL

We are pleased to offer Comodo's Positive Wildcard SSL. This offers 2048 bit signatures and up to 256 bit encryption to protect both your domain and unlimited subdomains. Installation is free  and Comodo backs the Positive Wildcard SSL with a $10,000 limited warranty!

The Positive Wildcard is only $149 per year. Get in touch to find out more.

Subdomain Reissuing for Comodo

Each time you wish to have an additional subdomain load securely with https, the virtual host entries for the subdomain need to be added manually by our administrators. This is true even for new subdomains created through cPanel. Anytime you would like a new subdomain to load securely with the wildcard SSL send us a re-issue request via Live Chat.

We can also install this type of SSL on multiple servers. Just ask!
