SAN SSL Certificates – Save 52-89% on Comodo SAN Certificates
Save Time & Money by Protecting Multiple Domains with a SAN Certificate
A Subject Alternative Name certificate (aka SAN certificate, SAN SSL certificate and Multi-Domain SSL certificate) allows you to secure up to 2,000 domains, subdomains, external IP addresses, and other environments on a single certificate.
This means you only need to go through the SSL lifecycle (shop, purchase, get validated, install, renew, etc.) one time for all your newly secured domains. It's also a more affordable option than purchasing a certificate for every domain!
How SAN Certificates Work
The subject alternative name (or SAN) field lets you secure many domains from a single certificate. Typically, the initial SAN certificate will include somewhere between 2 to 4 SANs, but when you purchase the certificate, you’ll have the option to select the number of domains you want to secure. From there, you can add up to 2,000 domains (for additional fees).
During the generation process, you’ll see the SAN field. This is where you can fill out all your domains, subdomains, etc. that you want to secure. The good thing is that additional SANs can be purchased at any time going forward.
Still think you need help? Not to worry! We have an SSL installation service that's very affordable! Our experts will install your SAN certificate for you, including adding all of your additional SANs.

SAN SSL Certificate FAQ
What Happens if You Don’t Have an SSL Certificate?
Well, an SSL certificate of any sort serves the purpose of encrypting the communications between your website and browser. For those of you who don't know, encryption ensures that communications (such as credit card numbers, passwords and so on) can securely travel through the web.
Without SSL, cybercriminals can easily steal data that’s in transit, leaving your website and customers vulnerable to threats.
Even if your website is not an e-commerce website or doesn't have any other types of communication tools, such as forms, by not having SSL, your users are still susceptible to cyberattacks because cybercriminals can watch what your users engage with on your website and possibly use that against them in a cyberattack. Therefore, SSL certificates, whether SAN certificates or another type, go a long way in keeping both you and your users safe.
How Much Does a San Certificate Cost?
The PositiveSSL Multi-Domain certificate stands as our most affordable SAN certificate. With its quality and our best-in-class customer service, you won’t find a better deal.
Some SAN certificates created with large enterprises in mind can cost upwards of $3,000 per year. But not with us. Take our Enterprise SSL Pro with EV Multi-Domain for example, which was designed to cater to enterprises and beats competitor pricing. We guarantee it!

How To Install an SSL Certificate on a WordPress Website
Need to install your SAN certificate on a WordPress website? Lucky for you, we have a detailed guide for you in our blog. We also have several helpful posts detailing how to install your SSL certificate on other platforms and tools.
What Is the Difference Between a Wildcard Certificate and SAN Certificate?
They are similar but used for two different purposes. As we mentioned, a SAN certificate secures up to 2,000 domains, subdomains, external IP addresses and other environments on a single certificate.
A Wildcard SSL certificate encrypts a single domain and all its associated subdomains. So, if you have a single website and will be adding additional subdomains, a Wildcard certificate is perfect for you! But, if you plan to secure multiple subdomains, domains, and IPs, you’ll need a SAN certificate.
What Is a Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificate?
These are very versatile certificates that can secure up to 250 domains and all of the accompanying sub-domains from one certificate.
