RapidSSL Wildcard certificate
RapidSSL Wildcard is the cheapest "asterisk" SSL certificate in the DigiCert family of CAs. The popular RapidSSL WildCard SSL certificate secures not only the main domain, but especially all its subdomains. This "unlimited" feature of WildCard SSL certificates is used by companies to secure many sub-domains with a single SSL certificate on the server. The RapidSSL certificate is very popular among administrators and can be distributed to unlimited servers. Another advantage of the RapidSSL Wildcard certificate is its quick issuance, which can be done in a matter of minutes.
Secure all subdomains with RapidSSL Wildcard
The RapidSSL Wildcard certificate can secure an unlimited number of sub-domains under the main domain. The Wildcard SSL/TLS certificate contains an asterisk () before the main domain name, which is also inserted in the request when generating keys for subsequent certification. It can secure the domains www.domain.com, admin.domain.com, mail.domain.com, abc.domain.com, xyz.domain.com and so on. If you need to secure multiple subdomains on your domain, then a RapidSSL Wildcard SSL certificate is the most practical and cost-effective solution.

What you should know before you place an order.
Domain Validated SSL certificate
All you need to do is provide proof of ownership/administration over the registered domain
The applicant for the SSL certificate is verified by sending an e-mail message to the selected e-mail. According to the rules there are fixed addresses to choose from admin@, administrator@, webmaster@, hostmaster@ or postmaster@. We recommend creating one of the addresses, or having it set as an alias, ev. use the domain basket and retrieve the confirmation e-mail from it.
Instead of e-mail confirmation, alternative validation offers inserting a TXT record into a DNS domain zone. We support DNS alternative verification method and is set in the order detail.
Note i: It is not possible to send a validation email to a personal address e.g. email@example.com.
How long it takes to get the RapidSSL Wildcard certificate
DV SSL - Fast domain verification, almost immediate issuance
Place your order and pay. After inserting the CSR (Certificate Signing Request), we will immediately order the certificate from the authority. To issue a new certificate, you only need to confirm the validation.
Our customers are able to obtain an SSL certificate within 10+ minutes when paying by card.
WildCard SSL can secure unlimited sub-domains
Wildcard SSL certificates can secure your fully qualified domain name and its sub-domains.
In the case of a request to secure a 2nd level domain, i.e. .domain.com, a SAN extension will be added for a separate domain, i.e. https://domain.com. Thus, one RapidSSL Wildcard certificate will secure the website for the main domain and all its subdomains at the same time. On the other hand, in case of a requirement for security of subdomains of the 4th and n-th level, for example admin.domain3rdlevel.domain.com, it is always necessary to obtain a separate WildCard SSL certificate .domain3rdlevel.domain.com. This then again allows HTTPS security for unlimited domains at that level.
Renewing your certificate
You need to renew RapidSSL Wildcard certificate before it expires
You can start renewing an expiring SSL certificate 30 days before it expires. It is recommended not to leave the renewal to the last minute, unused validity of the certificate will be added to the renewed one.
You can renew your RapidSSL Wildcard certificate with us without any problem even if you originally ordered it from another supplier. We always have better prices than the certification authority!
Unlimited free reissues for orders at our store
During the validity of the certificate, you can re-generate the certificate at any time free of charge. This is called REISSUE and is useful in case you do not have a private key for migration to another server or the keys have been deleted and there is no backup. Reissue is possible with a new request that contains the same data as the initial order.
Note i: Best practices are to generate a new certificate signing request (CSR) when reissuing your SSL/TLS certificate. Generating a new CSR creates a new, unique key pair (public/private) for the reissued certificate.
Note ii: It is not possible to reissue SSL while it is processing or another reissue request pending.
In order to provide you the lowest cost per year, we offer 2-5 year certificate packages
As of 1 September 2020, Apple, Google and Mozilla browsers and devices do not accept new SSL/TLS certificates that have a lifetime of more than 398 days. To comply with the latest security requirements, multi-year SSL certificates are issued for 1 year (max. 398 days). You'll need to re-issue the certificate once per year. We'll send you email notifications starting 30 days before expiration. Of course, REISSUE is free of charge. Plus you can reissue your certificate at any time and as many times as you like!
After the certificate is issued, you cannot shorten the validity period, request a refund of the unused period or change the domain name! If you decide to get an SSL certificate for 3 years or more, we recommend that you first consider whether you will need it for the entire period.
Note i: Re-issue requires revalidation.
Note ii: You can insert new CSR or use last one during reissue.
