Wildcard SSL Certificates
wildcard SSL certificates allows you to secure multiple sub-domains (within
the same domain) though a single certificate.
Depending on your budget, level of authentication and encryption as well as brand recognition and trust you require, there are multiple solutions available to match your business needs.
- The Digicert Wildcard Secure site or the Digicert secure site wildcard pro (most secure with *ECC encryption) are the top of the range wildcard certificates dedicated for financial institutions and government as they provide the highest level of security as well as additional security feature such as daily malware scan on your website.
- The Thawte Wildcard SSL, Geotrust wildcard SSL or Sectigo SSL are all mid-range SSL recommended for SMEs, they all do provide an adequate level of security for your website transactions.
- The Rapid SSL wildcard or Positive SSL wildcard are the lower end of the ssl security and are more recommended for internal and non transaction website as they are only validated through the domain ownership and tend to not be trusted as they have reportedly been use on fraudulent websites.
