Comodo Premium Wildcard SSL is designed to secure your main domain name and all its associated subdomains with the standard 128 / 258 bit encryption. It is a very cost effective solution compared to buying multiple certificates for each of your subdomains separately, because it saves you time on management, configurations and renewals.

This certificate is a Business Validated (BV) SSL, which requires a verification of your business and its owner. Your company has to be legally registered with the appropriate Government Registration Agency in the country or state where you apply from. The Certificate Authority will use a third-party business directory or a public telephone listing to find and call your company, and confirm that it performs its activity at the provided location. After the authorization process is completed, the SSL certificate will be issued to you within 1 to 3 business days.  

After the certificate is installed on your website, it will display the distinctive trust indicators: the green “https” in the address bar, a green padlock icon next to the URL, and the Comodo dynamic site seal which you can put anywhere on your website and which will display real-time company data when a visitor hovers the mouse over it. All these signs of a verified business and secured website will enhance your users’ trust and confidence, and will make them feel safe when entering their credit card details or their personal information on your website.

Another great benefit of this Wildcard SSL is its high compatibility with most desktop browsers, mobile browsers, and server platforms. You will also be allowed to re-issue this SSl Certificate for as many times as you need, and install it on an unlimited number of servers.

Your website will also benefit from getting a higher ranking in Google Search Engine, according to Google’ newest “HTTPS everywhere” policy. According to this policy, Google will give a priority to websites which have an SSL certificate.

For your full contentment, we will offer you a 7% or 15% discount if you buy this wildcard certificate for 2 or 3 years, and 25 days money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with your purchase.

Comodo Premium Wildcard SSL is the ideal security solution for any company and online shop which is willing to secure multiple subdomains efficiently and at an affordable cost.

Here is a list with the most common questions our customers have when buying a Wildcard SSL Certificate with Business Validation:

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.

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 [email protected] 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.

bv2bv1You can check if you have an Organization Validation SSL Certificate by looking at the attributes of your SSL Certificate. Business Validation equals to Organization Validation. This being said, wherever you see “Business Validation” it also means “Organization Validation”. 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 Organization Validation procedures. Please read the section that applies to your SSL Certificate brand below.

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 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).

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.
