Wildcard SSL Certificates

Secure Multiple Subdomains

Unlimited Licensing Thawte Wildcard SSL Certificates secure multiple subdomains with a single SSL certificate, reducing management time and cost. Using the wildcard notation (an asterisk and period before your domain name) allows you to extend security to different subdomains based on your top-level domain name.

For example, if your company runs yoursite.com, a Wildcard certificate could also secure news.yoursite.com, blog,yoursite.com and shop.yoursite.com.

Thawte Wildcard SSL Certificates include full organization validation, the Thawte Trusted Site Seal, free reissues and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

The right SSL certificate depends on the level of assurance your customers need and the minimum security level your organization requires.

Assurance and Authentication

Authentication means that a trusted third party (such as Thawte) has verified the identification information contained in your SSL certificate, assuring customers that your site is actually your site.


You are considering: Wildcard SSL Certificates with full organization validation. However, your domain name listed in the certificate includes an asterisk and may not fully assure users.


For more assurance, SSL Web Server Certificates with full organization validation include your domain name and validated organization name in certificate details and verification pages.


For the most assurance, SSL Web Server Certificates with EV turn the address bar green in high-security browsers, showing that your organization has met the industry’s highest standard of authentication. Extended Validation (EV) includes your domain name, organization, and location in certificate details and verification pages.

1 Minimum Assurance.   2 More Assurance.   3 Most Assurance.

Security and Encryption

Encryption is the "secret code" used to keep online communications private when a web browser and web server talk to each other.


You are considering: Wildcard SSL Certificates with standard encryption


You are considering: Wildcard SSL Certificates with 128-bit or 256-bit encryption in the latest operating systems and web browsers. However, certain older browsers and operating systems only connect at 40-bit or 56-bit.


For strong encryption in the most browsers with server-gated cryptography (SGC) enable older browsers and operating systems to step up to 128-bit or 256-bit encryption.

1 Standard encryption.   2 More encryption.   3 Strong encryption.

If you need both Extended Validation and SGC, consider a Symantec Secure Site Pro with EV SSL Certificate.
