Why do subdomains
need a Wildcard SSL?

Search engines visually identify sites
and pages that are not secure, often
with red letters and warning
messages.
If only the primary domain is covered,
visitors will see inconsistent coverage
and will not trust
that your site—or their
data—is secured. Wildcard Certificates
comprehensively secure your
primary
domain as well as an unlimited
number of subdomains.

FAQs

  • What is an Organizational Validation SSL Certificate?

    The encryption provided by SSL Certificates helps to prevent hackers from stealing private and confidential information sent via the Internet. A website secured with an SSL Certificate provides a safe place for customers to enter sensitive data such as credit card information, bank account numbers, etc.

    Organizational Validation and Extended Validation are business level validations and are included in products such as the Basic, Advanced, Wildcard, and Extended SSL Certificates. The type of validation needed depends on your budget, organizational size and number of subdomains.

  • What is 256-bit Encryption?

    Because computers and servers are networked and maintain an ongoing connection with the web, protecting private data and information while it’s stored or sent online requires an extra measure of security. Encryption changes data into a form that can only be read by the intended receiver.

    256-Bit Encryption refers to the size of the decryption key used to unscramble encrypted data. 256-Bit encryption is considered computationally infeasible to crack and is known as a very strong SSL certificate.

  • Why is there a monetary guarantee for Organizational Validation SSL Certificates?

    Security vulnerability is a liability. A monetary guarantee assures your customers that their transactions are protected on your website. Wildcard comes with a $1 million guarantee—so should they incur losses resulting directly from an online credit card transaction while visiting your website and the loss is a result of a misissued certificate, your customer will receive reimbursement up to $1 million.
