Below you will find important information to consider before you begin the process of purchasing an SSL certificate for your domain:
- To ensure that your SSL certificate is valid for both www.yourdomain.tld as well as yourdomain.tld, you must have your hosting provider generate the CSR with the common name www.yourdomain.tld
- The Wildcard SSL option allows you to secure the main domain as well as sub-domains, such as blog.domain, mobile.domain, etc.
- If you selected the Wildcard option, the CSR should be generated with *.yourdomain.tld
- For the Alpha and Domain level SSL certificates it will be necessary to choose an approver email from a pre-defined list. For more detail, please visit our support article Which email addresses can I use for SSL validation?
