Jelastic Wildcard SSL Certificate

| January 10, 2013

If you have multiple sub-domains to secure then a Wildcard SSL can save your money and time as it doesn't presuppose buying individual certificates. Wildcard is a type of SSL that allows securing multiple hostnames of a single domain name on a single server. Buying one wildcard SSL certificate is definitely cheaper than buying multiple traditional certificates. One more advantage of this type of certificate is the fact that you have to install and later on maintain only a single SSL certificate. Just imagine that you have to deploy 20 different individual SSL certificates. It's not so easy and rather time-wasting. And don't forget that you have to do it all over again, when it comes time to update them. A wildcard certificate quickly solves a large amount of tasks. These certificates are appropriate for large organizations or e-commerce web sites.
