Certificate types

 

certificate types
 
Here is a short description of the different SSL certificate types:
  • In addition to securing the main domain all certificate types also secure the default domain (e.g. main domain = www.domain.com → default domain = domain.com)
  • Standard SSL Certificate: secures one domain name
  • Advantage SSL Certificate: secures two domain names
  • UC Multi-Domain SSL Certificate: the basic certificate secures up to four domain names. You can have up to 250 domain names secured.
  • EV (Extended Validation) Multi-Domain SSL Certificate: the basic certificate secures up to two domain names. You can have up to 250 domain names secured.
  • Wildcard SSL Certificate: secures all domains under the wildcard specification (eg. *.wesentra.com). Can contain additional individual SAN definitions (eg. www.wesentra.fi or weseblog.com). Can contain other wildcard definitions as SANs (e.g. *.wesentra.se). Allows free-of-charge creation of wildcard duplicates for several servers with each having their own private keys.
