Essential SSL Wildcard

Essential protection for your domain and all its accompanying sub-domains.

The Essential SSL Wildcard provides essential protection to your website and all of its accompanying sub-domains—no maximum. If you have 50 sub-domains, it covers 50 sub-domains. Have 1,000? It covers 1,000. And if you ever add a new one, it covers that new sub-domain too. Best of all, the domain validated Essential SSL Wildcard certificate leverages the world’s leading Certificate Authority brand, Sectigo, on its static site seal. That means you get top-notch security and all the benefits that come from aligning your brand with the best.

  • Up to 256-bit encryption strength
  • Protects one domain and unlimited sub-domains

Domain Validated

This SSL certificate can be yours in just minutes. Simply prove ownership over your registered domain to Sectigo and you’re on your way! Proof of ownership can be established in a couple of ways. It takes just a few minutes—quick and easy.

Secures All Sub-Domains

The Essential SSL Wildcard certificate doesn’t just secure your main domain. It secures all your sub-domains, too. Simply use an asterisk at the sub-domain level in the common name you wish to secure during the CSR generation process and the Essential SSL Wildcard will do the rest.

Static Sectigo Secure Site Seal

The Sectigo Secure Site Seal is among the most trusted indicators on the internet. It is synonymous with safety. This product comes with a dynamic, clickable site seal. Independent research has proven that trust seals like Sectigo’s increase consumer trust and boost conversion rates.

Get Your Website Marked “Secure”

Google is penalizing websites that are still being served over HTTP by flagging them with pesky warnings and negative indicators. Essential SSL allows you to serve your entire website via HTTPS, which gets rid of the warnings and labels your site “Secure.”

Assurance & Authentication

The Essential SSL Wildcard offers essential security for your domain and all of its accompanying sub-domains. And for many small to mid-sized businesses, that’s all that’s needed – the basic essentials of encryption. But if you’re looking business-level authentication – or to put it another way, if you’re looking to build trust – then the Essential SSL line may not be your best option. If offering customers greater assurance is a consideration, we recommend investing in the InstantSSL line or even Sectigo’s flagship line of products.
