Thawte Wildcard SSL Certificate: your ultimate - but affordable - option for identity protection and data encryption

The product in front of you is the baseline Thawte Wildcard SSL certificate - an upgraded version of the company's more affordable SSL123 Wildcard SSL certificate. Featuring support for unlimited sub-domains all covered as part of this single Thawte SSL, 256-bit encryption can now be extended to your entire online presence with ease.

Up-to-date security for your multiple subdomains is a must-have in this day and age, but that isn't to say that you need to overspend on SSL certificates. Quite the opposite, in fact, because Thawte SSL - and Thawte Wildcard SSL in particular - is often the most affordable option of the bunch. Since Thawte has DigiCert backing, however, you can rest assured of the fact that this single SSL certificate will, without a doubt, afford you all the security that a more expensive SSL/TLS might have.

A major difference between affordable and expensive Wildcard SSL, then, lies in features. Though reasonably lean, this Thawte Wildcard SSL foregoes Domain Validation in lieu of full-fledged Business Validation. Subscribers also get immediate access to the tried-and-true Thawte Trust Seal, allowing for improved perceived trustworthiness from your visitors' perspective.

If you need SSL certificates that are cheap, easy-to-use, reliable, and renowned for their quality all at once - Thawte Wildcard SSL will be the way to go.

Wildcard SSL certificates with support for unlimited sub-domains, available now

With the ability to secure unlimited subdomains that are attached to your main domain, the Thawte Wildcard SSL Certificate is a great solution for securing multiple services simultaneously, saving on management time and costs.

In effect, you won't need to deal with multiple SSL certificates, each featuring its own type of validation, issuance and validity, and domain coverage. Instead, you can replace all of your SSL certificates with just one SSL/TSL certificate that does it all, all at once.

If Domain Validation just doesn't cut it for your small or medium-sized business, and if you want to substantially bolster your trustworthiness in the long run, you may well skip the cheaper SSL123 Wildcard option and get the Business Validation Thawte Wildcard SSL, instead.

With this certificate, you can secure mail.yourdomain.com, blog.yourdomain.com, or any subdomain you need. And with the added benefit of unlimited server licenses, you can host these subdomains on multiple servers while securing them all with a single SSL TLS certificate.

Enjoy DigiCert backing combined with Thawte's pedigree in web security

From one of the most trusted brands in online security - a company that has been around since the beginning of SSL Certificates - you know you’re going to be in good hands with Thawte.

This is why they back every product they provide with a substantial warranty package. The Web Server Wildcard SSL comes with a $1,250,000 warranty to assure you and your customers that your information and transactions are safe and secured.

Such a massive warranty backing comes on the wings of Thawte's Digicert affiliation. Namely, Thawte is operating under the DigiCert umbrella, and since DigiCert is the leading international Certificate Authority, their subsidiaries enjoy many of their own privileges.

As a certification authority, Thawte provides its users with top-tier encryption security for secure online transactions, protection from fraudulent site instances, and ultimate browser compatibility. While many Wildcard SSL certificates offer similar feature lists, it's the $1,250,000 warranty and stellar encryption strength that set Thawte Wildcard domain protection apart.

Exceptional browser compatibility and access to the reputable Thawte Site Seal

With a remarkably high browser compatibility rate and support for all contemporary mobile devices, each and every visitor to your website or service will be protected with up to 256-bit encryption. Though there's no green address bar feature attached to this Wildcard domain protection package, your users will still get a wide variety of trust-improving features.

Visitors will, for example, be presented with all the most sought-after signs of online security: the HTTPS:// in the URL bar and the padlock icon in their browser. They will also be presented with the included Site Seal installed on your website, and which can be placed on any of the secured domains and/or subdomains, depending on preference.

This Site Seal will display your business details, assuring your customers that you have been vetted by a third-party security specialist - Thawte. Not just any specialist, however, but one that has been around since the beginning and is widely recognizable and highly respected.

Aggregate data about site protection also suggests that all of these elements come together to vastly improve the users' conversion rates over a long period of time. As your visitors will feel safer visiting your website, they are also far more likely to use your services and become repeat customers.

Rapid issuance with Thawte and SSLTrust

When you create your Certificate Signing Request and place your order for the Thawte Wildcard certificate, it will be issued in approximately 2 business days. During this period, Thawte's security specialists will verify your identity, possession of the domain in question and its referenced sub-domains, and a variety of other crucial information.

It is a good idea to make sure that any local registry or directory in your country is fully up-to-date on all your recent business details. Thawte may reach out to said directories and look into related data, and the more information there is on your business, the more likely it is that the issuance process goes by quickly and smoothly.

Once all this has been confirmed, your new SSL will be issued and you can have it installed within minutes, securing you and your customers. The ability to secure unlimited sub-domains means that all of your Wildcard domains will be covered as soon as the certificate is issued, with the Site Seal ready for implementation at your own behest.

An upgrade to Thawte's SSL123 Wildcard certificate

This WIldcard SSL is a more comprehensive and secure version of Thawte's cheaper SSL123 Wildcard SSL. Depending on whether you care more about a cheap price or validation type, either of these options may work for your specific use case.

Of course, the SSL123 certificate will also be able to cover many web servers to prove ownership over a given domain. If you just need to get a small business or hobby website up and running with a single certificate, the cheaper version should do the trick.

If getting domain validated isn't enough, however, and if you want to cost-effectively encrypt a larger array of more complex services, Thawte's Wildcard Flexi SSL will be the superior option.

I was utterly and totally confused, even buying the wrong type of SSL Certificate that I needed. Trying to work out the intricacies of Wildcard SSL for 3 Servers has been a two week adventure into an area of Domain security that I have never had to venture into in the past.Spending money with our registrar for SSL certs was the wrong way to go first up.Once I found SSL Trust, purchasing and setting up SSL was easy, I just didn't know enough about Sub domains and wildcards to get the right one.Emailing SSL Trust to gain assistance and clarity on what I needed on a Friday evening and having the best support and advice come back within the hour was quite simply, refreshing and unexpected. A bit of back and forth between Paul and myself sorted out any questions I had and gave me the instructions to get exactly what I needed - outstanding!Paul organised for the incorrect SSL to be cancelled and credited which was a nice bonus and helped me feel better that I hadn't wasted money on the wrong certificate unlike the registrar who can't cancel or credit.I won't be doing a lot of SSL Certificates in the future but I have found the one company that I will use when I need to, SSL Trust!

My company needed a code signing certificate as quickly as possible and had a tricky phone setup that was causing us a lot of grief with getting validation. Paul from SSL Trust helped us through it from the get-go with top notch support. Definitely recommend SSL Trust!
