SSL Silver Wildcard - SSL Silver encryption for an unlimited amount of subdomains
The domain validated SwissSign SSL Silver Wildcard Certificate allows you to protect and manage any number of subdomains for a defined domain name using a single certificate: *.domain.com.
Important change: Browser producers are reducing the validity of SSL/TLS certificates to one year in their browsers (find out more).
SwissSign licences with a two-year validity can therefore only be ordered and redeemed until 20 August 2020 (certificate activation must be completed by 30 August 2020 at the latest).
Wildcard certificates are suited to protecting several websites that share the same domain or to cope with frequent additions of subdomains. The SwissSign SSL Silver Wildcard Certificate includes all advantages of the silver category including both cost effective basic protection and rapid issuance. The domain-validated SSL Silver Certificate is the right choice wherever digital communication has to be conducted securely and at a minimum cost.
