Multi-Domain SSL Certificates
Secure 250 separate domains, IPs or SANs with one Multi Domain certificate
A Multi-Domain SSL Certificate gives you complete versatility – it streamlines management. Easily secure multiple domains, sub-domains, external IP addresses, and other environments on a single certificate throughout its entire lifecycle. This streamlines the management of your certificates by syncing up certificate expiration dates and reducing the need for multiple installations.
What Is Multi-Domain SSL?
Plain and simple, it's certificate management made easy. Secure 250 different domains/IPs on a single certificate – it doesn't get any easier. Whether you have a small web presence with just a few domains and sub-domains or manage a massive infrastructure, certificate management can become a significant challenge.
How Does Multi-Domain SSL Work?
When you generate your Certificate Signing Request (CSR), you list each additional IP in the Subject Alternative Name (SAN) field. Here is where you can fill out up to 250 SANs. That's the most in the industry-by far. You can do this at any time during the certificate's lifecycle, you'll just need to reissue.
Subject Alternative Names (SAN)
The SAN field functionality allows you to secure your entire web presence in one certificate. Typically, when you purchase a Multi-Domain certificate, it includes 2 to 4 Subject Alternative Names (SANs) bundled with it. And additional SANs can be purchased separately as needed. Best of all, throughout the certificate’s lifespan, you can add, change, or remove SANs, allowing the certificate to grow with your business.
