Yes. Wildcard SSL certificates provides strong encryption for a main domain (TDL) and its multiple sub-domains. While purchasing the wildcard SSL, you need to place an asterisk before the domain level that you want to encrypt. This will allow all of its sub-domain variants to automatically be covered, no matter how many sub-domains you add later.
For example, for *.website.com, the wildcard certificate will also cover sub-domains like blog.website.com, support.website.com, or any other.
If your website has a single sub-domain and you don’t intend to add any more, you should use a domain certificate. However, if your website has multiple sub-domains and you want to secure all of them, a wildcard certificate will be a lot more reasonable. Read our blog post on types of SSL certificates where we explained all significant SSL certificates and their features.
A key part of protecting your website from hackers is to ensure that your organisation has been verified and is legitimate. This is why our extended SSL and higher level security certificates require organisational verification.
In simple terms, a CSR or Certificate Signing Request is a small file that contains information regarding the organisation that has applied for an SSL certificate. It is recommended that the customer generates the CSR before ordering the SSL certificate, as once generated, the respective CA or Certification Authority uses the CSR to issue a new SSL server certificate.
A Certificate Signing Request Code is created in a Base-64 Coded PEM Format, which can be accessed by using a text editor wherein the —–BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST—– and —–END CERTIFICATE REQUEST—– tags have to be mentioned.
Generating a CSR or a Certificate Signing Request is a mandatory aspect in the process of obtaining an SSL Certificate. Even though it might be little, this encoded text file has the authority to make your SSL Certificate null and void.
Just keep in mind that while generating a CSR for a Wildcard certificate, the common name must ALWAYS start with an asterisk (*) for example: *.abc.com).
In this way, the Asterisk character (*) – which is sometimes known as a wildcard character –can be utilised for any name later on.
Here’s what you’ll need to do it yourself:
- Go to the IIS (Internet Information services) manager in your cPanel.
- Identify and select your current server.
- Go to the section called server certificates.
- Complete the prompt to create a certificate request under actions on the right.
- Fill in your CSR details.
- Add the encrypted bit length for you SSL provider.
- Complete and save.
- The CSR will generate in plain text format. Save it in Notepad.
- Return to form on the website then copy and paste the CSR.
