Wildcard SSL Certificate from GlobalSign

Wildcard SSL for DomainSSL & OrganizationSSL

A single SSL Certificate to secure unlimited subdomains

Save time, administration and money by adding the Wildcard SSL option. Typically a standard SSL Certificate is issued to a single Fully Qualified Domain Name only, which means it can only be used on the exact domain (including sub-domain) to which it has been issued. With the Wildcard SSL option activated you easily get around this restriction by receiving an SSL Certificate issued to *.domain.com. 

The * character allows the Certificate to be used on any number of different subdomains, replacing the usual single fixed subdomain of standard SSL Certificates.

How does a Wildcard SSL Certificate work?

It's simple - we issue a Certificate with a "Common Name" of *.yourdomain.com. This "Wildcard" SSL Certificate can then be used on any subdomain belonging to the yourdomain.com domain name. For example, a Certificate application for:

*.yourdomain.com

can be used to secure...

www,yourdomain.com
secure.yourdomain.com
webmail.yourdomain.com
owa.yourdomain.com
anything.yourdomain.com
