DV Wildcard SSL Certificates

Wildcard SSL (One Domain & All Sub-domains)

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 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 SSL 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 Certificate for all of them.

Domain Validation SSL

The Domain Validation SSL Certificate (DV SSL) 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 SSL 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 DV SSL certificate which can be installed immediately. Sites with Domain Validation SSL can be identified by the gray 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 SSL 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.
