Unfortunately, there are no Wildcard EV SSL Certificates on the market. The Certificate Authorities refuse to issue EV Wildcard SSL Certificates because of the security reasons, so as they want to have complete control over the subdomains that they issue an EV SSL to. That is why, your only solution is to buy a Multi-Domain EV SSL Certificate that secures multiple domains and subdomains.

The sub-domains that you can secure with one Wildcard SSL Certificate have to be either 1st level sub-domains (e.g.: *.example.com) or 2nd level sub-domains (*.mob.example.com). You cannot secure 1st and 2nd level sub-domains with one regular Wildcard SSL Certificate.

If you want to secure 1st level sub-domains and 2nd level sub-domains, you have to get a Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificate, or 2 separate Wildcard SSL Certificates.

For example, a regular Wildcard SSL Certificate allows you to secure:

  1. One main domain name (example.com) and all its 1st level sub-domains (*.example.com):
    1. my.example.com
    2. test.example.com
    3. dev.example.com
    4. mail.example.com
    5. (etc)
  2. Or, one sub-domain (mob.example.com) and all 2nd level sub-domains (*.mob.example.com):
    1. my.mob.example.com
    2. test.mob.example.com
    3. dev.mob.example.com
    4. mail.mob.example.com
    5. (etc)

In order to secure one domain and all its sub-domains as shown in the first example, you have to include *.example.com as a common name (domain name) when creating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request). If you want to secure 2nd level sub-domains, then you have to enter *.mob.example.com as a common name (domain name) when creating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request).

Business Validation SSL Certificates

To change the domain name in your Business Validation SSL Certificate, you have to go through the same reconfiguration and domain validation process as described under the “Domain Validation” section above. After that, you have to contact the Certificate Authority, to provide them your “Partner Order ID”, and tell them that you reissued your SSL Certificate for a new domain name. They might schedule a callback verification with you, and your SSL Certificate will be reissued within 1 business day after that.

partner-order-idYou can find your “Partner Order ID” on the details page of your SSL Certificate inside your SSL Dragon account. See screenshot on the right.

You can find the contact information for all Certificate Authorities that we work with at this link.

Extended Validation SSL Certificates

To change the domain name in your Extended Validation SSL Certificate, you have to go through the same reconfiguration and domain validation process as described under the “Domain Validation” section above.

After that, you have to contact the Certificate Authority, to provide them your “Partner Order ID”, and tell them that you reissued your SSL Certificate for a new domain name. They will schedule a callback verification with you, and your SSL Certificate will be reissued within 1 business day after that.

partner-order-idYou can find your “Partner Order ID” on the details page of your SSL Certificate inside your SSL Dragon account. See screenshot on the right.

You can find the contact information for all Certificate Authorities that we work with at this link.

For Comodo EV SSL Certificates only, you also have to download the following two forms, fill them in, and enter the new domain name that you reissued your SSL certificate for, and then sign them.
– EV Certificate Request Form
EV SSL Subscriber Agreement
You will need to scan and send these two documents to Comodo Validation at evdocs@comodo.com and mention your “Partner Order ID” in your message.

Unfortunately, domain names that end with .local are not supported from November 1st, 2015. If you request an SSL Certificate for a domain or sub-domain that has .local as an extension, your SSL Certificate will be rejected by the Certificate Authority.

If you want to secure a domain or sub-domain on your localhost, you can create a self-signed SSL Certificate. There is plenty of documentation online on how to do that.

Yes, you can secure an IP address with an SSL Certificate. However, only some specific SSL Certificates will allow you to do that.

If you want to secure an IP addresses with Comodo, then there is one single SSL Certificate offered by Comodo which does that. The name of the certificate is: Comodo InstantSSL Premium. Please note that Comodo InstantSSL Premium is a Business Validation SSL Certificate, which means that you need to have a registered company in order to be issued this SSL Certificate.

Also, you will be able to secure an IP address with any Business Validation SSL Certificate offered by Thatwe, GeoTrust, and Symantec. As you can see, these 3 Certificate Authorities have a larger number of SSL Certificates that can secure IP addresses than Comodo.

RapidSSL does not have any SSL Certificate that secures IP addresses.

multi-domainYou can secure inexpensively and efficiently multiple domains and/or sub-domains with a Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificate. Depending on the SSL Certificate brand and certificate product, the SAN cert will include a different number of additional domains at the price quoted on the SSL Certificate’s details page (see screenshot on the right).

You can find our full list of Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificates at this link.

You can secure multiple subdomains by purchasing a Wildcard Certificate. This SSL was specifically designed for ensuring the security of your main domain, along with its multiple subdomains. For instance, if your site’s domain is ssldragon.com, then the Wildcard certificate for *.ssldragon.com will secure an unlimited number of your first-level subdomains like mail.ssldragon.com, account.ssldragon.com or login.ssldragon.com.

You can find our full list of Wildcard certificates at this link.

multi-domain2When you buy or configure your Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificate, please note that most Multi-Domain Certificates do not secure the domains with and without “www”. With other words if you want to secure both, example.com and www.example.com under one single Multi-Domain Certificate, that will be considered as two different domain names. The screenshot on the right shows you where you can find the attribute that tells you if your Multi-Domain Certificate secures both “www” and “non-www” under one single domain (SAN), or not.

Anyway, that is not a problem so as you cannot have the same website open both as www.example.com and as example.com. All website owners only choose one of these options and make the other option automatically re-direct to the other. For example, you can choose your website to always open at www.example.com and anybody who enters on example.com is automatically redirected to www.example.com. In this way, you only have to secure one domain, and that is: www.example.com.

It is possible that this situation happened to you too. You ordered a Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV, you passed the validation process, Comodo sent you an email where they told you that your certificate was issued successfully, but when you go to your SSL Dragon account to get your SSL Certificate you still see it as “processing”. Here is why:

The Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV comes in two parts:
1) Comodo InstantSSL – which is a Business Validation certificate;
2) The “Free EV” part of the certificate – which is an Extended Validation (Green Bar) SSL certificate.

Sometimes Comodo issues the Comodo InstantSSL (Business Validation) certificate first, and then the “Free EV” certificate comes later. When buying a Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV, customers expect to get the EV Certificate. That is why, most of the times we only display the SSL certificate in users’ accounts when the “Free EV” part of the certificate is ready.

So as Comodo announced you about the certificate being issued, and so as you do not see the SSL Certificate as issued in your SSL Dragon account, in most cases it means that Comodo issued only the Comodo InstantSSL (Business Validation) certificate, and they did not issue the final “Free EV” certificate that we are expecting to get.

We recommend you to contact Comodo and ask them about the status of your “Free EV” certificate and see if there is anything else that is needed from your side for the “Free EV” certificate to be issued. Many times Comodo will ask you to do call back phone verification process for the Comodo InstantSSL (Business Validation) certificate, which you already did if you got an email from them saying that your certificate was issued. But when you talk to them on the phone, you they will ask you to do another call back phone verification process for the “Free EV” certificate.

You can contact Comodo Validation Department at one of the following two numbers:
– USA: +1 (888) 266-6361 Ext. 4
– International: +1 (703) 581- 6361 Ext. 4

Once you pass the second call back phone verification process for the “Free EV” certificate, your Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV will be issued within 1 business day. This being said, we recommend checking your SSL Dragon account the next day, and you should see your Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV as issued.

Yes, you have to pass the Extended Validation every year. However, the process of completing the Extended Validation is easier the following years, so as the Certificate Authority has more information about your company in their system, based on your previous EV SSL Certificates requests.

If you buy your EV SSL Certificate for 2 years, then your certificate will be valid for 2 years, and you will have to pass the Extended Validation again in 2 years when you request a new EV SSL Certificate.

You have to purchase an SSL certificate if your website contains logins or web forms that require personal or credit card information from your customers. The SSL certificate will secure the personal data shared on your website and will make your clients feel safer while performing transactions, knowing that any information shared is within a secure environment and authenticated by a trusted Certificate Authority.

If you have an informative website, we still recommend you to purchase an SSL certificate. By having an HTTPS link, your website will be more trustworthy and Google will rank it higher in its search results.

There are two options of what an EV SSL Certificate can display in the address bar:
1) The company name only, for example: GPI Holding, LLC [US]
2) DBA (Doing Business As) and the company name, for example: SSL Dragon (GPI Holding, LLC) [US]

Certificate Authorities do not allow customers to display only the DBA in the address bar. Such requests came from many customers over the years, and Certificate Authorities never approved them.

2) Go to Services;
3) Then go to My Services;
4) You will see the list of SSL Certificates which you bought from us;
5) Next to each SSL Certificate you will see its “Next Due Date”.

The “Next Due Date” is the date when the SSL Certificate will expire and it will no longer secure your website.

due-date6) If you click on an SSL Certificate which you bought, you will get to the SSL Certificate details page. If you scroll down, you will be able to see the “Next Due Date” written there again.

You want to renew and install a new SSL Certificate before the “Next Due Date”. It is recommended to do that about a week or two prior to that date.

renew-orderRenewing your SSL Certificate means that you have to buy a new SSL Certificate of the exact same type as the one that is expiring, and for the exact same domain name.

You can renew your current SSL Certificate that is expiring by getting new SSL Certificate at the following link: https://www.ssldragon.com/ssl-certificates/

When configuring your newly purchased SSL Certificate, under the “Order Type” you should choose “Renew order” instead of “New order”. This option will go to the Certificate Authority, and they will know that you had an SSL Certificate for this exact domain name previously, and your are renewing the SSL Certificate. They will match your previous information with the new information that you provided, and will issue you a new SSL Certificate.

Please note that if you are renewing a Business Validation SSL Certificate or an Extended Validation SSL Certificate, you will still have to pass the Business Validation or the Extended Validation again. Anyway, the Business Validation and Extended Validation process is quicker when renewing an SSL Certificate than when getting it for the first time.

A Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificate is specifically created to allow users to secure multiple domains and sub-domains using one single SSL Certificate.

NOTE #1: Any Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificate should start with a non-Wildcard domain. This means that anytime you configure and request a Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificate, you need to generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request) for a single domain (such as: example.com), without any asterisk sign “*”. This is a requirement that comes from the Certificate Authorities. All the additional SANs (2nd, 3rd, 4th domains) can be Wildcard domains.

For example, a Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificate that has 4 SAN (domains) by default, allows you to secure the following:

  1. One main domain and multiple Wildcard domains:
    1. example.com – included in the CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
    2. *.example.com
    3. *.mysite.com
    4. *.abcxyz.com
  2. One main domain and multiple Wildcard domains (with both, 1st level and 2nd level sub-domains):
    1. example.com – included in the CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
    2. *.example.com
    3. *.mob.example.com
    4. *.mysite.com
  3. Several domains and multiple Wildcard domains (with both, 1st level and 2nd level sub-domains):
    1. example.com – included in the CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
    2. *.example.com
    3. mysite.com
    4. *.mob.mysite.com

NOTE #2: If you add a SAN item like *.domain.com, you will protect its unlimited sub-domains but not the main domain. For example, if you want to secure secure two domains and all their sub-domains, you have to configure your SSL in the following format:

  1. domain.com – included in the CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
  2. *.domain.com
  3. mysite.com
  4. *.mysite.com

You can add sub-domains to your server and they will be covered by your Wildcard SSL Certificate automatically. You do not need to re-issue your Wildcard SSL Certificate each and every time when you add sub-domains to it. The newly added sub-domains will be automatically covered by your Wildcard SSL Certificate.

An SSL Certificate takes the information that your users provide and encrypts it, so that only a web server can decrypt it and understand it. So as the information on the web is transmitted via HTTP language, your data is not protected, as HTTP itself is not secure. The SSL Certificate takes your information, encrypts it, and passes it securely to the server where the website is hosted, or directly to the payment processor. On the merchant’s server, or on the payment processor’s side, the SSL certificate receives the encrypted HTTP information, decodes it, and safely performs the action you requested (logging you in, processing a payment, etc).

In this way, the SSL Certificate turns your “HTTP” connection into an “HTTPS” (secured HTTP) connection and protects your data. With an SSL Certificate, your information is protected and safe.

The validation time of an SSL depends on the type of certificate you chose to buy.

Domain Validated certificates are issued within 3-5 minutes in 99% of the cases. Only when an SSL Certificate is requested for a domain name that contains a trademark or a brand name, then those SSL Certificates may pass brand validation, and can take up to a business day to be issued.

Business Validated certificates are usually issued within 1-3 business days.

Extended Validated certificates can take between 1-7 business days to be issued. The Certificate Authority does its part of the work very quickly. If all the information is provided to the Certificate Authority quickly and correctly, then the Certificate Authority can issue the EV certificate within 1 business day. We’ve seen situations when the EV Certificate was issued within a few hours. The 1-7 days period depends on how quickly the customer provides the required information to the Certificate Authority, and how quickly the customer responds to the Certificate Authority’s potential requests for additional information.

By doing the Validation process, the Certificate Authority’s is trying to confirm that you are the owner of the domain, and that the company that you are requesting a Business Validation or Extended Validation certificate for is active. That is why it is important that you keep your company’s records (address and phone number) up to date and you promptly respond to the Certificate Authority’s requests.

bv2bv1You can check if you have a Business Validation SSL Certificate by looking at the attributes of your SSL Certificate. Please open the two screenshots on the right in order to see where you can find the information about the validation type of your SSL Certificate.

Different SSL Certificate brands have different Business Validation procedures. Please read the section that applies to your SSL Certificate brand below.

Comodo

You need to provide information about your company and your company’s phone number as a part of the Business Validation process. There are three ways to do that. You don’t have to do all three. Doing just one of them will allow you to pass the Business Validation.

1.1) The first way is to provide your DUNS number to Comodo. You can get your company’s DUNS number from this website: https://www.dandb.com/. If Comodo gets back to you and says that your DUNS listing does not contain a phone number, then you need to contact Dun & Bradstreet (at https://www.dandb.com/) and ask them to add your company’s phone number to their “business directory and on the report”.

1.2) If you don’t have a DUNS number, then the other thing which you can do is to provide your company’s Articles of Incorporation, or Government Issued Business License, or your local organization number. Please make sure that the documents that you provide have your company’s registration number so that Comodo can check your company with your country’s governmental directories (e.g.: Corporation Division, Companies House, Department of State, etc). Please note that Comodo will be looking to see your company’s phone number listed there as well. Not all governmental directories have the companies phone numbers. If the governmental directory allows you to call them, email them, or use their website to add your phone number, then please go ahead and do that.

1.3) If the above two options (1.1 and 1.2) don’t work for you, then the third and last option to validate your company and your phone number is to ask a CPA (Certified Public Accountant), or a Latin Notary, or an Attorney (Lawyer) to write, sign and send a letter to Comodo where they confirm your company name, address and phone number. You can find the sample letters here:
– Sample Accountant Letter
– Sample Form Legal Opinion Letter

partner-order-idPlease send any of the above information (from points 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3) to docs@comodo.com and mention your “Partner Order ID” in your message. You can find your “Partner Order ID” on the details page of your SSL Certificate inside your SSL Dragon account. See screenshot on the right.

If you do not hear from Comodo in the next 3 days after you email them the information from above, then please call +1 (888) 266-6361 (Ext 4) to check the status of your SSL Certificate with Comodo. When you talk to them, you will need to provide them your “Partner Order ID”.

Thawte, GeoTrust, Symantec/VeriSign

If you bought a Business Validation SSL Certificate with Thawte, GeoTrust, Symantec/VeriSign, then the certificate authority will work on validating the legal existence of your company via local public databases, as a part of the Business Validation process. This may take between 1-3 working days. Please wait until one of the certificate authority representatives contacts you about any additional information that they may need you to provide them.

partner-order-idIf you do not hear from the Certificate Authority representatives in the next 5-7 days, then please call +1 (520) 477-3152 (Ext 2) to check the status of your SSL Certificate with the Certificate Authority. Please note that Thawte, GeoTrust, Symantec/VeriSign are all owned by Symanec, and they all have the same phone number provided above.  When you talk to them, you will need to provide the “Partner Order ID”, which you can find on the details page of your SSL Certificate inside your SSL Dragon account. See screenshot on the right.

When requesting an SSL Certificate you have to prove that you own or you have management rights over the domain or sub-domain that you are requesting an SSL Certificate for.

Domain validation by email

If you have an SSL Certificate issued by Comodo, GeoTrust, Thawte, Symantec and RapidSSL, then you can complete the domain validation is by responding to an automated domain validation message sent to your email address. You will be given a list of emails to choose from, and the automated domain validation message will be sent to the email address that you choose.

Always check your email address (including your Spam folder) so as you should receive an email message from the Certificate Authority with instructions on how to validate (prove the ownership of) your domain name. The email message will ask you to copy a unique code and paste it on a specific link provided in the same email message.

If your SSL Certificate is issued by Comodo, there are 2 more ways how you can complete the domain validation:

Domain validation via the HTTP / HTTPS method

The HTTP validation consists of uploading a TXT validation file to a pre-defined location on your website. You have to make sure that you can access this file and link from any web browser. Once you proceed with this domain validation method, Comodo will run a scan of your website and will look particularly for this file at the given link. Your SSL Certificate will pass the domain validation within a few minutes after Comodo’s system finds the TXT file on your website.

The HTTPS validation method is the same validation method as described above. You should choose the HTTPS option if you already have an SSL Certificate installed on your website.

Domain validation via the DNS method

Comodo allows you to to add a pre-defined domain record to your domain registrar (the website where you registered your domain name). Make sure that your firewall doesn’t block Comodo validation robot. Comodo validation robot comes from secure.comodo.net / 91.199.212.132. The user agent should be “Comodo DCV” or “COMODO DCV”.

Please note that newly added DNS records take between 10-48 minutes to propagate. This means that you will have to wait up to 48 hours to pass the domain validation if you go with this method. That is why we recommend the Email, HTTP, and HTTPS methods better, so as they would allow you to pass the domain validation instantly.

How to change the domain validation method?

If you chose one of these domain validation methods described above, and you see that your domain doesn’t get validated, then you can always change your domain validation method. Please go to this link to learn how to do that.

Symantec Code Signing SSL with EV requires As a part of the Extended Validation. As a part of this process, you need to provide information about your company and your company’s phone number.

DUNS number

You need to provide your DUNS number to Symantec, and your DUNS profile needs to display your phone number. You can check your company’s DUNS number / profile at this website: https://www.dandb.com/. If you see that your DUNS listing does not contain a phone number, then you need to contact Dun & Bradstreet (at https://www.dandb.com/) and ask them to add your phone number to their “business directory and on the report”.

Please note that after asking DNB (Dun & Bradstreet) to add your phone number to your DUNS listing, it will take them a few days to do this update. You should expect to receive an email message from DNB saying that your DUNS profile has been updated successfully. Your phone number will start appearing on your DUNS profile on the https://www.dandb.com/ website only after you get that confirmation message from DNB.

partner-order-idAt that point, you should can contact Symantec at +1 (877) 438-8776 (select option #1 and then option #2), and provide them your Symantec Order ID and your DUNS number.

Symantec will proceed with the callback verification process to verify your phone number. Once that is completed, your Symantec Code Signing SSL with EV will be issued to you.

Legal letter

If adding your phone number to your DUNS listing takes too long, you can ask Symantec to tell you what alternatives you have for passing the Extended Validation. Symantec can send you an email message with information about a legal letter which you can write, then take it to a notary for him/her to sign it, and then scan and send it back to Symantec by email. The letter will have your company name, address and phone number. Once Symantec receives it, they will do the callback on the number which you provide in the legal letter, and will issue your Code Signing Certificate shortly after that. Other certificate authorities have this practice too, so providing a legal letter is a common method for passing the business and extended validation.

Some Certificate Authorities (especially Comodo and Symantec) may ask you to update or add your phone number to your company’s DUNS listing, as a part of your Business or Extended Validation process.

After you have contacted Dun & Bradstreet and added your phone number to your company’s DUNS listing, it may take between 5 and 40 days for Dun & Bradstreet to make your DUNS listing update available to the public. When you talk to Dun & Bradstreet over the phone, they may tell you that they added or updated your phone number. However, they only initiated process. Your phone number will appear on the Dun & Bradstreet website (https://www.dandb.com/) in about 5 to 40 days after that.

You will know that your DUNS listing has been truly updated, only when you get an email message from Dun & Bradstreet saying that your DUNS profile has been updated successfully. Your phone number will start appearing on your DUNS listing only after you get this email from them. Also, Certificates Authorities (such as Comodo and Symantec) can verify your phone number based on your DUNS listing only when your phone number is publicly available. That’s why, you or we should contact the Certificate Authority requesting them to check your DUNS listing only after you get that confirmation by email.

In the past, we asked the Validation Department representatives from Comodo and Symantec to contact Dun & Bradstreet directly, and check our customer’s phone number with Dun & Bradstreet. We did that after our customers told us that they added or updated their phone number on their DUNS listing. Each time, Comodo and Symantec were told by the Dun & Bradstreet representatives that our customers’ DUNS listing update is “in progress” and “has not been completed yet”, and were advised to get back to Dun & Bradstreet when the customers receive an email message from Dun & Bradstreet which confirms them that their DUNS listing was updated.

If 5-40 days is too much to wait, we recommend you to go with other methods of validating your company and phone number, such as providing a legal letter written by a notary, an attorney, or a certified public accountant. This method will allow you to pass the Business or Extended Validation within 1-2 days.

It is possible that this situation happened to you too. You ordered a Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV, you passed the Extended Validation process, Comodo sent you an email where they told you that your certificate was issued successfully, and when you install your Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV, your website shows as secured by an SSL, but doesn’t show a green bar and doesn’t show your company name in the URL bar as it should. Here’s why:

The Comodo InstantSSL with Free EV comes in two parts:
1) Comodo InstantSSL – which is a Business Validation certificate;
2) The “Free EV” part of the certificate – which is an Extended Validation (Green Bar) SSL certificate.

Comodo issues both parts of the certificate and offers them to us. Sometimes Comodo issues the Comodo InstantSSL (Business Validation) certificate first, and then the “Free EV” certificate comes several hours later.

So as Comodo announced you about the certificate being issued, you probably got it and installed it on your website. The thing is that you got the Comodo InstantSSL (Business Validation) certificate and installed it, and that is why your website doesn’t show a green bar and your company name in the browser’s URL bar.

Once you notify us about this problem, we place an internal request in our system, and we double check if the “Free EV” certificate was offered to us. If we find that the “Free EV” certificate was issued and reached our system, then we announce you about that, and you have to go to your SSL Dragon account and get your updated “Free EV” certificate from there.

If we see that the “Free EV” certificate did not reach our system yet, then we place an internal request with Comodo for them to provide the “Free EV” certificate to us, and it usually takes a few hours for the “Free EV” certificate to come up. When that happens, your current Comodo InstantSSL (Business Validation) certificate is automatically replaced with the “Free EV” certificate, and we send you an email message notifying you about that.

One of the most common reasons why a website which has an SSL Certificate installed continues to show as insecure, is that your website continues to pull content, images or videos from unsecured HTTP links. You need to change all the links that you are pulling content from to HTTPS links, and your website will start showing as secure immediately.

The second most common reason why a website may show as insecure though you installed an SSL Certificate on it, is that you and other visitors continue to enter your website on an unsecured HTTP link. You should put a redirect in the server configuration file or in the site’s htaccess file, so that whoever enters your website by typing “www.mywebiste.com” should be automatically redirected to https://www.mywebsite.com. With other words, you should put a redirect that sends all users to your secured site. Here are some articles on how to do this.

We recommend you to read our article called: How to move your website from HTTP to HTTPS easily and with no pain. The article goes even further and comes with many more recommendations on what to check and do to have your website open from an HTTPS link correctly.

Another problem might be the incorrect SSL installation. You can check how well was your SSL installed using these tools: SSL Server Test and Why No Padlock? They will offer you a free report on your SSL Certificate installation and detailed information on how to fix any vulnerabilities.

multi-domainA Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificate is specifically created to allow users to secure multiple domains and/or multiple sub-domains with one single SSL Certificate. Depending on the SSL Certificate product and brand, the certificate will include a different number of additional domains (called SANs) at the price quoted on the SSL Certificate’s details page (see screenshot on the right).

For example, a Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificate that has 4 domains by default allows you to secure:

  • Four different domains:
    1. mysite.com
    2. example.com
    3. abcxyz.com
    4. demo123.com
  • Four different sub-domains:
    1. my.example.com
    2. mail.example.com
    3. test.mysite.com
    4. account.mysite.com
  • Four different domains and sub-domains:
    1. example.com
    2. my.example.com
    3. abcxyz.com
    4. mail.demo123.com

sanNOTE: Here is how you should configure your Multi-Domain SSL Certificate on our website: When you generate a CSR (Certificate Signing Request), please include one single domain name or sub-domain in it, such as: www.example.com. The rest of the domains or sub-domains, which are called SANs (2nd, 3rd, 4th domains or sub-domains) should be included in the fields for additional domains. You will see the fields for additional domains on the SSL Certificate configuration form, right under the text area for the CSR (see screenshot on the right).

non-secureYour current SSL Certificate will expire as soon as the “Next Due Date” for your SSL Certificate passes. If you keep your old and expired SSL Certificate on your website, then all the web and mobile browsers will show your website as insecure and will prompt users that your website has a major security problem, and will not let visitors enter your website unless visitors explicitly accept to enter your website on their own risk. You can see an example of these security alerts that visitors will see on your website if you keep an expired SSL Certificate.

The solution to prevent that is to renew your SSL Certificate, and install the newly renewed SSL Certificate on your website. In that case your website will continue to show as secure.

The other, less preferable solution, is to uninstall the SSL Certificate from your website. In that case, visitors will be able to see your website. They will not be stopped from viewing your website as shown in the screenshot from above. However, so as your website will not have an SSL Certificate in general, then visitors will see the “Not secure” message in the browser’s URL bar next to the name of the website.

Whether you accidentally or purposefully enter some incorrect information during the CSR generation process, the CSR and the Private Key will still be issued to you immediately. However, once you use the CSR code to apply for an SSL Certificate, you may or may not be issued an SSL Certificate. It is solely at the Certificate Authority’s discretion to approve or decline your SSL Certificate issuance if you entered incorrect information about you and your company.

If you realized that you entered incorrect information in the CSR while generating it, you simply have to put aside, ignore or delete your existing CSR and Private Key. After that, you should generate a new CSR code (which will automatically generate a new Private Key too), using correct information about yourself and your company. Use the newer CSR when applying for an SSL Certificate, and then your newer Private Key when installing your SSL Certificate on your website and server.

The CSR contains the following encrypted information: your country, state, city/town, name of the organization, department from your organization, the domain name that you want the SSL Certificate to be issued for, and the email address where your CSR code and the Private Key will be sent to once they are both generated.

The Business Validation (BV), also called Organization Validation (OV), SSL certificate is recommended if you have an e-commerce website that is a registered business. Besides the domain validation performed through e-mail, you will have to provide company documentation to receive business authentication. During this authentication process, the Certificate Authority (CA) will verify if your business is carried out by a legitimate, good faith company operating at the provided location. Since the validation is done manually and involves paperwork, you will receive your Business Validation SSL certificate within 1-3 business days.

After receiving Business Validation, the green “https” and padlock icon will be displayed on your website’s address bar. These signs will make customers more willing to entrust you their personal and financial information. Yet, if your website purpose is to perform large sales, offer specific products/services or execute financial transactions, you should consider buying our Extended Validation (EV) certificate. This type of SSL certificate will activate the green address bar and will give your site a higher level of trust.

The CodeSigning certificate was specifically developed for increasing the trustworthiness of your software products. This type of certificate protects your digital downloadable goods, like scripts or codes, by signing them and guaranteeing their authenticity and integrity. This certification brings a greater level of your customers’ trust, by ensuring them that your content is safe and it belongs to your company. Moreover, the Authenticode Technology guarantees that if the code will be damaged after being signed, the digital signature will break and alert the client that the software is no longer credible.

CodeSigning certificates are Business Validation (BV) and Personal Validation SSL certificates. The Business Validation SSLs require Certificate Authority’s (CA’s) authentication through providing your company’s documents, along with performing domain validation by email. The Personal Validation requires personal identification verification of the owner. The entire validation process may take up to 2 or 3 business days to issue your CodeSigning certificate that will serve as a third party guarantee for the authenticity of your digital goods.

You can find our full list of CodeSigning certificates at this link.

“CSR” stands for “Certificate Signing Request”. The CSR code represents an encrypted text message which a person or a company sends to the Certificate Authority through SSL Dragon as a part of applying for an SSL Certificate. The CSR code contains information about you and your company, which will be included in the SSL Certificate that will be issued to you.

The Domain Validation (DV) SSL certificate is the most affordable choice for increasing the security of your blog, personal or small business website. Since there is no required paperwork, the process of acquiring the Domain Validation certificate is very quick and easy: you will have to prove that you are the domain owner just by responding to an automatic e-mail message. After a couple of minutes, you will receive the issued SSL certificate which can be installed immediately. Sites with Domain Validation certification can be identified by the green padlock that is displayed by most web browsers.

This type of SSL certificates is recommended to be used if you need to prove that your site is secured, by having a secured connection. The Domain Validation certificates don’t display the legal entity, as the identity of the website owner is not checked while issuing them. So, if you have an e-commerce website or a site that collects users’ personal data, you should consider buying our Business Validation (BV) or Extended Validation (EV) certificates, which will make your site more trustworthy.

The Subject Alternative Name (SAN) SSL certificate, also called the Unified Communication Certificate (UCC) or the Multi-Domain SSL certificate was particularly developed to secure all your domains and subdomains by owning one single SSL certificate. This type of certificate ensures the security for both, your internal and external domains/subdomains and is fully compatible with your Microsoft Exchange products and Microsoft Office Communications Server.

UCC/SAN SSL certificates are not just easy to be managed but are the most cost-effective option. These certificates give you the opportunity to secure your main domain, for example, ssldragon.com, together with many other totally distinct domains, like ssldragon.net, ssldragonsslcertificates.com and its subdomains mail.ssldragon.com and account.ssldragon.com – all with 1 single certificate. Besides, unlike Wildcard SSL certificates, UCC/SAN certificates are available in all three validation methods: Domain Validation (DV), Business Validation (BV) and Extended Validation (EV).

You can find our full list of Multi Domain (UCC/SAN) SSL Certificates at this link.

A site seal is a security icon graphic showing the name of the issuing Authority of the SSL. The site seal on your website is a proof that your business has been verified by the Certificate Authority.

You will be issued a static or dynamic site seal, depending on the SSL certificate that you buy for your website. A dynamic site seal will usually display a live time and date stamp and/or your company name. Visitors can click on the site seal to display additional verification information.

By displaying the site seal in preeminent place on your website, you will make your clients feel safer while performing transactions, knowing that any information shared is within a secure environment and authenticated by a trusted Certificate Authority.

The Wildcard SSL certificate was specifically designed for ensuring the security of your main domain, along with its multiple subdomains. For instance, if your site’s domain is ssldragon.com, then the Wildcard certificate for “*.ssldragon.com” will secure an unlimited number of your first-level subdomains like mail.ssldragon.com, account.ssldragon.com or login.ssldragon.com. By buying this SSL certificate, you don’t need to purchase other certificates for each subdomain. The Wildcard SSL certificate comes in two options: Domain Validation (DV) and Business Validation (BV).

Besides being a convenient way of securing your site, Wildcard SSL certificates are very easy to be managed because the domains will have the same renewal date. This is why you should consider getting Wildcard certificates if you own a complex website, with different subdomains, IP addresses or server storage options. Yet, if you have level 2 subdomains (like test.account.ssldragon.com) or you need an Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate, you may have to buy a separate SSL certificate for each domain/subdomain or a UCC/SAN SSL certificate for all of them.

The Extended Validation (EV) SSL Certificate is the best choice if you want to build customer relationships based on security and trust. This certificate is issued only after the Certificate Authority (CA) performed an extensive verification of your company and its owner, confirming that your business is trustworthy. The validation process can take a few business days. But if you keep your company’s records up to date, the Extended Validation SSL certificate will be issued quickly, confirming that your company owns the website.

This type of SSL certificate significantly enhances the trust level of your website. Extended Validation certificates are highly effective in providing protection against phishing attacks. By displaying the well-known green address bar, your clients feel safer while performing transactions, and this fact will definitely boost your conversions. This is why Extended Validation certificates are considered the most reputable SSL Certificates for your website.

An SSL certificate warranty is an insurance which covers any damage that you may incur as a result of a data breach or hack that was caused due to a flaw in the certificate. The SSL warranties range in value from $5,000 to $1,500,000. This means that the higher value certificates come with more extensive warranties.

The “SSL Certificate” stands for “Security Socket Layers Certificate”. This protocol was created to protect data travelling between two machines through data encryption.

All the information from the Internet is basically transferred from one location to another in the form of HTTP language (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol). But HTTP by itself is unprotected and susceptible to Internet tricksters and thieves. That’s why SSL Certificates were developed to protect the information travelling on the Internet.

You may know about the SSL Certificates by some common things you see in your browser: the padlock, the browser bar turning green, the “HTTPS” on the browser tab (when HTTP is being protected by SSL it inherits the letter “S”).

These are all indications that the website you are using has SSL encryption and its information is secure against cyber attacks.

The reissue of an SSL certificate means its replacement with a new SSL. The reissued SSL certificate will only be valid until the expiration of the original certificate.

You will need to request the reissue of your SSL certificate in any one of the following situations:

  • You have lost the private key for the certificate;
  • You have changed your web server/hosting provider;
  • You have changed your contact information and you need to update it on your certificate;
  • You feel that your private key is compromised.

The reissue of your SSL certificate is free of charge.

Encryption strength is the size of the keys used to perform the encryption of data during an SSL session. The longer keys provide stronger encryption, and make it difficult for computers to break the code.

All our SSL certificates support up to 256-bit encryption, as it is strongly recommended by the industry experts.

SHA – standing for Secure Hash Algorithm – is a hash algorithm used by certification authorities to sign certificates and CRL (Certificates Revocation List).

SHA-1 is an older version of the algorithm that is no longer considered to be secure by major browsers and industry experts. SHA-1 is no longer allowed to be used during the generation process by the industry.

SHA-2 is the latest version that is widely accepted and considered to be secure by all major industry experts and browsers. The encryption hash used in SHA-2 is significantly stronger and not subject to the same vulnerabilities as SHA-1.

A Wildcard SSL Certificate is specifically created to allow users to secure one single domain name and all its sub-domains. With other words, you can secure one single domain name and an unlimited number of sub-domains belonging to that domain name with one single Wildcard SSL Certificate.

You can add sub-domains to your server and they will be covered by your Wildcard SSL Certificate automatically. You do not need to re-issue your Wildcard SSL Certificate each and every time when you add sub-domains to it. The newly added sub-domains will be automatically covered by your Wildcard SSL Certificate.

NOTE: The sub-domains that you can secure with one Wildcard SSL Certificate have to be either 1st level sub-domains (e.g.: *.example.com) or 2nd level sub-domains (*.mob.example.com). You cannot secure 1st and 2nd level sub-domains with one regular Wildcard SSL Certificate.  If you want to secure 1st level sub-domains and 2nd level sub-domains, you have to get a Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL Certificate, or 2 separate Wildcard SSL Certificates.

For example, a regular Wildcard SSL Certificate allows you to secure:

  1. One main domain name (example.com) and all its 1st level sub-domains (*.example.com):
    1. my.example.com
    2. test.example.com
    3. dev.example.com
    4. mail.example.com
    5. (etc)
  2. Or, one sub-domain (mob.example.com) and all 2nd level sub-domains (*.mob.example.com):
    1. my.mob.example.com
    2. test.mob.example.com
    3. dev.mob.example.com
    4. mail.mob.example.com
    5. (etc)

In order to secure one domain and all its sub-domains as shown in the first example, you have to include *.example.com as a common name (domain name) when creating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request). If you want to secure 2nd level sub-domains, then you have to enter *.mob.example.com as a common name (domain name) when creating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request).

The validity of an SSL certificate varies between 1 and 3 years, depending on the certificate you choose to buy. The Extended Validated SSL certificates are valid for 1 or 2 years. The Domain and Business Validated SSL certificates offered by Comodo, RapidSSL, Symantec, GeoTrust and Thawte can be issued for up to 3 years.

You can save between 7% and 15% when purchasing an SSL certificate for 2 or 3 years ahead.

due-dateIf you have a Domain Validation SSL Certificate, you can renew your SSL Certificate closer to the time when your current SSL Certificate expires. Your SSL Certificate expires on its “next Due Date”. However, you should plan to have the SSL Certificate renewed enough time ahead so that you manage to install it on your website and server before your current SSL Certificate expires.

If you have a Business Validation SSL Certificate or an Extended Validation SSL Certificate, then we recommend renewing your SSL Certificate as as much ahead of time as possible, taking into account that you have to pass the Business Validation or Extended Validation again. The Business Validation or Extended Validation process is quicker when renewing an SSL Certificate than when getting it for the first time. Anyway, it is always good to do this as early as possible, in order to assure the continuity of your website being secured by an SSL Certificate.

There is no place in your SSL Dragon account where you can download the SSL Certificate from. We provide you the SSL Certificate in the exact same form in which we get it from the Certificate Authority.

Anyway, if you need your SSL Certificate as actual files, then you can use any text editing tool such as Notepad and create the actual files that you need.

If you go to your SSL Dragon account, then to your SSL Certificate details page, you will find the 3 large pieces of codes that your SSL Certificate is made of:
1) The CSR code is the one which you generated along with your Private Key, and which you used to configure your SSL Certificate. You can copy and paste this file in Notepad, and then save it as a .csr format file.
2) The CRT code which is your actual SSL Certificate code. Save this one as a .cst format file.
3) The CA Bundle code has the root and intermediate certificates in it. Save this one as a .ca-bundle format file.

If you generated your CSR code on the CSR Generator on our website, then the CSR and the Private Key were both shown to you when you generated your CSR. They were also sent to your email address that you included in the CSR form that you filled in on our website. The message that was sent to your email address came from support@ssldragon.com and it had the following subject: “Your CSR code and your Private Key”.

If you generated your CSR on your server, then your CSR code and your Private Key were both provided to you by your server. You had to copy both on your computer or email, and store them in a safe place. In some cases, some servers may show the CSR code and the Private Key, and at the same time store both these pieces of code for you on the server. In other cases, the server only provides you the CSR code and keeps the Private Key hidden on the server.

Also, your CSR code will be displayed to you again when your SSL Certificate is issued. Once the SSL Certificate is issued and shown in your SSL Dragon account, it will also show you the CSR code that you used to configure your SSL Certificate.

This is one of the most frequent questions that we get. Unfortunately we cannot send you the Private Key, because it is private, and we do not store it anywhere in our system and database. The Private Key is always confidential, and it is only you as the SSL Certificate owner who should have it. If we were to have or store your Private Key, this would compromise the “security” of your SSL Certificate.

If you generated your CSR code on the CSR Generator on our website, then the CSR and the Private Key were both shown to you when you generated your CSR code. They were also sent to your email address that you included in your CSR. The message that was sent to your email address came from support@ssldragon.com and has the following subject: “Your CSR code and your Private Key”.

If you generated your CSR on your server, then your CSR code and your Private Key were both provided to you by your server. You had to copy both on your computer or email, and store them in a safe place. In some cases, some servers may show the CSR code and the Private Key, and at the same time store both these pieces of code for you on the server. In other cases, the server only provides you the CSR code and keeps the Private Key hidden on the server.

re-issue-certificateThis being said, please look for the Private Key in your email address or on the server. If you cannot find it, then please generate a new CSR code on your server, or on the CSR Generator on our website. The CSR code will come with a Private Key. Once you generate a new CSR code and Private Key, then please go to the SSL Certificate details page inside your SSL Dragon account, and click on the “Reissue certificate” button from the left side bar on the page. You will have to pass the domain validation again, and once you do that, the SSL Certificate will be re-issued to you based on the new CSR code that you entered. Also, the re-issued SSL Certificate will pair with the Private Key which came along with the new CSR code.

If you cannot find the “Reissue certificate” button on the SSL Certificate details page inside your SSL Dragon account, then please send us the new CSR code via a Support Ticket inside your SSL Dragon account, or directly at support@ssldragon.com and we will re-generate the SSL Certificate for you, using the new CSR code. Please do not send us the Private Key, so as only you should be the one to have it. Store it in a safe place in your email or computer.

After installing an SSL Certificate on your website, you can also let your visitors and customers know that your website is secure by adding a site seal somewhere on a prominent place on your website. You can choose to place the site seal in the footer of your website, or on the checkout page where customers have to enter their credit card information, or in both these places.

Site seals are of two types: static and dynamic. All Domain Validation SSL Certificates come with a static site seal, which is basically an image. All Business Validation and Extended Validation SSL Certificates come with a dynamic site seal which can be hovered or clicked on, and they will show the name of your company, will confirm that your website was issued a legitimate SSL Certificate, and will prove that your website belongs to your company.

BV SSL Certificates issued by GeoTrust, Thawte and Symantec have a quicker and easier Business Validation process compared to those issued by Comodo.

With GeoTrust, Thawte and Symantec, the Certificate Authority does most of the company validation process all by itself, and in rare cases requires the customers to provide additional information and legal letters signed by a notary, certified public accountant, or an attorney.

On the other side, Comodo relies a lot on the customer to provide all the information about his/her company, as well as updating the company’s DUNS listing (on the Dun & Bradstreet website) and providing legal letters signed by a notary, a certified public accountant, or an attorney.

This article will help you determine which multi-domain SSL Certificate you should get. We have categorized the multi-domain SSL Certificates in 4 groups, and we would recommend you to read about each group and then chosee a multi-domain SSL Certificate from the group that meets your preferences best:

  1. Domain validated multi-domain certificates. There are two certificates in this category: Comodo PositiveSSL Multi-Domain and Comodo SSL UCC DV. These certificates will secure your websites by making it open from a permanent HTTPS link, will display a green padlock icon next to the URL bar, and will make your website show as “Secure” in all web and mobile browsers. These multi-domain certificates are the quickest ad easiest to get, so as you only have to prove the domain ownership.
  2. Business validated multi-domain certificates. You need to have a registered company to be eligible for a business validated SSL Certificate. Besides the HTTPS link and and the green padlock icon near your website’s URL, the people who visit your website will be able to see your company name when they search whom the SSL Certificate was issued to, and they will also see your company name and address when they roll over or click on the dynamic site seal which comes with your SSL Certificate and which you can add to your website. This type of certificates are issued within 1-3 days.
  3. Extended validated multi-domain certificates. These certificates are considered to be the highest standard in the SSL Certificates industry. They have all the other security elements described above, plus the famous green bar which shows the name of your company directly in the browser’s URL bar. This type of certificates are issued within 1-7 days.
  4. Multi-domain Wildcard certificates. These certificates allow you to secure one main domain and multiple wildcard domains using one single SSL Certificate. You can get a Comodo PositiveSSL Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL if you want a domain validated SSL, or a Comodo Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL if you prefer a business validated certificate. You can learn more about how multi-domain wildcard certificates work at this link.

1) Domain Validation SSL Certificates – are the least expensive SSL Certificates. They are the easiest to get, and are issued within 3-5 minutes. More info…

2) Business Validation SSL Certificates require you to have a registered company. When users click on the green padlock icon for your certificate, they will see your company name.

3) Extended Validation SSL Certificates come with the famous Green Bar which displays the name of your company right in the URL bar of the browser. They also come with a dynamic site seal similar to the one from the footer of our website. Just like the Business Validation certificates, the Extended Validation SSL Certificates require you to have a registered company. They are issued within 1-5 business days. More info…

Also, based on how many domains or sub-domains you want to secure, you can look at One Domain SSL Certificates which will secure only one single domain name or sub-domain, Multi-Domain (SAN) SSL Certificates which secure several domains and/or sub-domains at a time, and the Wildcard SSL Certificates which secure one domain and all its sub-domains under one certificate. Finally, don’t forget about the Code Signing SSL Certificates which will sign, secure and protect your software from being infected with malware and then distributed online.

Please note that all these SSL Certificates types come with the same exact security level and encryption strength.

When you buy a multi-domain SSL Certificate and you include several domain names and/or sub-domains in it, the Certificate Authorities require you to pass the domain validation for each and every domain name and/or sub-domain that you included in your multi-domain SSL Certificate, and only after that the multi-domain SSL Certificate will be issued to you.

POSSIBLE PROBLEM: Sometimes the email addresses, or your HTTP options, or the DNS records that you choose for your multi-domain certificate do not get set correctly when they reach the Certificate Authority. You will know that when you see that you only got one single domain validation message to your email address instead of getting several domain validation messages, or your multi-domain SSL Certificate’s status still shows as “Awaiting Validation (Full)” even though you passed the domain validation for one of the domains.

partner-order-idHOW TO FIX: There is an easy way to fix that, and that requires getting in contact with the Certificate Authority’s Validation Department. When you contact them, please provide them your “Partner Order ID” (see screenshot on the right), and then tell them about the domain validation method that you chose to go with: HTTP, DNS or Email. If you chose to pass the domains validation by email, then double check with the Validation Department representatives what email addresses are set in their system, and ask them to send you the domain validation messages to your desired email addresses.
