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.) a single 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 names (or SANs) is what enables SAN certificates to secure so many domains with a single cert. When you purchase a SAN SSL certificate, you'll have the option to choose how many domains you want to secure. The initial SAN certificate price will typically include 2-4 SANs. From there you can add as many as you want up to 2,000 (for additional fees).
During the generation process, you will come across a SAN field. This is where you can fill out all your domains, subdomains, etc. you want secured. 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, your website and customers are highly susceptible to data that's in transit being stolen by cybercriminals.
Even if your website is not an ecommerce website or doesn't have any other types of communication tools, such as forms, etc., 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.
