WILDCARD SSL

Encrypt and protect your website conveniently and cost-effectively with Sectigo Wildcard SSL certificates. This type of SSL/TLS certificate allows you to secure your main domain and an unlimited number of subdomains under your main domain with just one single certificate.

For example, www.yourwebsite.com, login.yourwebsite.com, and mail.yourwebsite.com do not need separate certificates but rather one Wildcard SSL. This type of digital certificate offers full encryption for all subdomains and servers under a single domain, making it an affordable and effective solution for most websites. Nisse, one of the longest-running commercial Certificate Authorities, offers Wildcard SSL certificates in Domain Validated (DV) and Organizational Validated (OV) validation options.

Validation

Requirements

The time required to validate and issue a wildcard SSL certificate depends on the validation option you choose. DV SSL certificates are typically issued within minutes, while OV SSL certificates can take 1-5 days. These steps and tips will help guide you through the validation process.

Domain Validated SSL certificates are the most basic and easiest to validate using a single step to verify the person or organization who owns the registered domain.

To complete the validation, the domain owner must prove that they own the domain that was submitted with the order.

The easiest and preferred method is completing the verification with email-based authentication. Using this preferred method, we will send an email to the WHOIS registrar email address asking you to verify that you purchased a DV certificate. Once you positively respond to our email, the requirement is considered satisfied and the certificate can be issued within minutes of a completed order.

As an alternative to the WHOIS registered email, we can send the authentication email to one of five pre-approved email addresses associated with the website domain. The five pre-approved addresses are:

If the email Domain Validation does not work for your particular situation, there are alternative methods.

  • File-Based Authentication – we will provide you with a text file that you will need to upload to the root directory of your website. We will then verify your website via HTTP or HTTPS.
  • CNAME-Based Authentication – we will provide you with two unique hash values (these are MD5 and SHA1). You, in turn, must enter them in your CNAME DNS record.

Organization Validated or OV SSL certificates require more validation than Domain Validated (DV) certificates, but provide more trust. With an OV certificate, we confirm the business associated with the domain name is registered and legitimate by checking details such as the business name, location, address, and incorporation or registration information. This makes the OV certificate a more suitable option for public-facing websites that represent companies or organizations. OV’s are usually used by corporations, governments and other entities that want to provide an extra layer of confidence to their website visitors. OV requirements for an organization include:

  • Domain Ownership/Authentication
  • Organization Authentication
  • Locality Presence
  • Telephone Verification (Organization phone number found on an online database
  • Final Verification phone call

For legitimate organizations, this process goes smoothly and quickly. Remember, an OV certificate differentiates the legitimate businesses from the pretenders—including scammers and hackers.

  • OV SSL certificate for an individual requires the identity and address is validated on the certificate. Individual identity is verified by the applicant providing one of the following documents:

    • Legible copy of a government-issued photo ID. Such as a valid driver’s license, passport, military ID, or National ID
    • Copy of a recent major utility bill (i.e. power bill, water bill, etc.)
    • Copy of a bank or credit card statement

A wildcard certificate will secure a primary domain and secure unlimited subdomains under the primary domain. A subdomain is a subdivision of a base domain, and in a URL comes before the main domain name. It’s available in both DV and OV validation options.

A wildcard SSL from Nisse® starts at $312 for the DV option when you choose a six-year subscription and the OV option starts at $558 for the six-year subscription.

While the wildcard type secures all subdomains under one single domain, a multi-domain certificate (also known as UCC or SAN SSL) secures up to 250 unique domains and their subdomains with one certificate.

Multi-year plans provide instant savings and consistent coverage in a simplified, long-term solution. While you will have to reissue your certificate each year per industry standards, you’re guaranteed the lowest price today, and locked in with coverage for multiple years.

What are people saying?

Alex Byrne

I validated and installed the SSL/TLS cert in about 5 minutes. Overall I give them a thumbs up

Jordan

The SSL certificate worked good as I expected but the service I was given was outstanding. TomZ one of the nisse-ssl.com representatives guided me for about an hour or more and led me to having a fully secured site.

Javier

It took us about 30 minutes to get SSL and now we are good for 5 years
