Multi-year certificates

With multi-year certificates, you will benefit from attractive discounts. However, the validation and request for the certificate must be made annually despite the multi-year term.


  • With Wildcard, in addition to the main domain (domain.com), you also protect sub-domains such as, for example, info1.domain.com, info2.domain.com and admin.domain.com. Please note that sub-sub-domains (e.g. sub.*.domain.com) are not covered by this certificate. For the protection of multiple sub-sub-domains we recommend the SSL Gold Multi-Domain Certificate.
  • The Wildcard Certificate is issued based on one Certificate Service Request (CSR) or attributes entry and one private key. In case you need more private keys with the same subject please order additional certificates.
