Wildcard SSL (DV)


Product description

A Wildcard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a type of SSL/TLS certificate that provides encryption for a domain and its unlimited subdomains using a single certificate. The “DV” in “Wildcard SSL (DV)” stands for Domain Validated, indicating the level of validation performed by the Certificate Authority (CA) before issuing the certificate.

Here’s how a Wildcard SSL (DV) certificate works:

  1. Domain Validation (DV): The CA verifies that the applicant requesting the certificate has control over the domain name for which the certificate is being issued. This validation process typically involves sending an email to an address associated with the domain or requiring the applicant to upload a verification file to the website’s server. DV certificates do not require extensive validation of the organization behind the website.
  2. Wildcard Feature: The wildcard feature of the certificate allows it to secure the main domain and all of its subdomains. For example, if you have a Wildcard SSL (DV) certificate for “*.example.com,” it can secure “www.example.com,” “mail.example.com,” “blog.example.com,” and any other subdomains of “example.com.”

Wildcard SSL (DV) certificates are commonly used by organizations that have a main domain with multiple subdomains and want a convenient and cost-effective way to secure all of them. They are suitable for personal websites, blogs, small businesses, and other non-sensitive applications where encryption is needed for multiple subdomains without the need for extensive validation.

It’s important to note that Wildcard SSL (DV) certificates do not provide information about the organization behind the website, and they do not display the organization’s name in the browser’s address bar. They simply encrypt the connection between the user’s browser and the website, showing a padlock icon to indicate that the connection is secure.
