Protecting Multiple Domains and Sub-domains

Protecting Multiple Domains and Sub-domains
Simplify and Save with Future-proof SSL Solutions

As your organization grows, chances are you’ll add domains and sub-domains. We know how challenging—not to mention expensive—it can be to try and keep track of multiple SSL Certificates, possibly bought from different providers, issued by different Certificate Authorities (CAs) and all expiring at different times. Not to worry—there are solutions specifically designed to simplify your life and save you money. Before we dive into these solutions, let’s cover a few basics.

Domains vs. Sub-domains
In case you’re not familiar with this terminology, having multiple domains means you have multiple root domains, such as:

www.yourdomain.com
www.yourdomain.org
www.yourdomain.net

Sub-domains are part of a larger domain, for example:

mail.yourdomain.com
members.yourdomain.com
ftp.yourdomain.com

Wildcard Certificates


A Wildcard Certificate allows you to cover an unlimited number of sub-domains all with just one certificate. Simply put an asterisk in front of your domain name on your CSR. Wildcards save you money and simplify SSL management. They grow with your organization and allow you to secure any new sub-domains you add in the future. Wildcards also enable always-on SSL, so your visitors enjoy a secure experience across your entire website.


Multi-domain Certificates
A Multi-domain Certificate makes it easy and affordable to protect up to 100 additional domains with a single certificate. Also referred to as SAN Certificates (Subject Alternative Name), they’re a good fit for securing different domains, UC environments, internal IP addresses and more. Simply fill out a SAN for every additional domain you wish to cover. Multi-domain Certificates offer more flexibility than Wildcards as they’re not limited to the same domain or number of levels. They’re available in all three validation types: Domain Validation (DV), Organization Validation (OV) and Extended Validation (EV).

Multi-Domain Wildcard SSL
So, what if you have both multiple domains and multiple sub-domains? That’s what the Multi-Domain Wildcard is for. It can secure multiple domains along with an unlimited number of sub-domains and, depending on the brand, up to 25 or 100 all on a single certificate. Available in both DV and OV, these certificates save you significant time and money.

HTTPS Phishing: 49% of Phishing Websites now sport the green padlock

We need to have a clearer discussion about HTTPS and the green padlock. Every month it seems like we hit a new milestone in the internet’s mass migration from HTTP to HTTPS with more and more websites adopting SSL/TLS and securing their connections. Unfortunately, today we’re reporting a far more dubious milestone: nearly half of all phishing websites are now using HTTPS , too. And while this was always inevitable, given the fact that HTTPS has become the new standard, it still casts a light on an issue that is going to plague this industry until we start to have a more frank discussion about HTTPS: Secure ≠ Safe. If you’re a regular reader of Hashed Out you know this is a point we’ve belabored, but one that still bears repeating. So, today we’re going to do that. We’ll talk about HTTPS, people’s misperceptions about it and what we need to do better as an industry to correct those misperceptions moving forward. Let’s hash it out. Nearly half of
