Symantec™ Secure Site Wildcard
Secure Multiple Sub-Domains on a Single Certificate from Symantec™
A Symantec Wildcard SSL Certificate is quite a convenient solution, it allows SSL encryption on multiple sub-domains using a single certificate, only of course if these domains are controlled/owned by the same company and are sharing the same base domain name. For example, a wildcard certificate issued to Company XYZ using the Common Name ("*.CompanyXYZ.com") may be used to secure the following domains:

Symantec Wildcard SSLs are a common high-level standard of security across all types of configurations that is better achieved when you do not have to share or copy certificates among multiple servers. Wildcard certificates are extremely convenient and can be extremely cost-effective; however some limitations do exist and we thought we would share them with you:
- If for whatever reason, your wildcard certificate must be revoked, all of your sub-domains will also need a new certificate.
- Sometimes wildcard certificates do not work perfectly with some older server-client configurations. Not typical, but still exists.
- Unfortunately, Symantec Wildcard SSL Certificates are not currently covered under Symantec's NetSure® Protection Plan.
Symantec™ Secure Site Wildcard can now secure unlimited subdomains as well as your root domain!
Note: You can specify wildcard coverage at any level, but the root will only be covered if the wildcard is being used at the first level (“*.domain.com)
