More domain security support

The SSL certificate supports SAN/UC technology (Subject Alternative Name/Unified Communications) which enables you to secure more primary domain subdomains with one SSL certificate. In this way the purchase price to achieve SSL security for more web projects can be significantly reduced.
The certificate enables you to secure both the primary domain and 4 more subdomains. Altogether up to 5 domains can be secured.
However, unlike other SAN certificates in our portfolio you cannot secure unrelated domains and names. The reason is the lowest validation method (DV), where the authority verifies just the primary domain via an email message sent to it and can't verify other, unrelated domains automatically.
The price for SAN/UC extension is for one subject at a time and the number of domains (subjects) is entered when placing the order. During the certificate validity period SAN domains can be changed or added. The primary domain cannot be changed during the validity period.

Alternative names
When ordering a certificate for a second-level domain with www, the certificate will be valid for the separate domain without www too. The certificate then contains two alternative subject names and However, this feature is not supported in other combinations (e.g.

Usage examples

  • (FQDN - Fully Qualified Domain Name)
  • (subdomain)
  • (primary domain subdomain)
  • (Microsoft Exchange service)
  • EXCHANGE01 (internal server name / NetBIOS name)
  • (private IP address)
  • (internal domain name divided by dots)
  • (other domain name)
  • (public IP address)

Note:GeoTrust QuickSSL Premium certificate enables the use just main, validated domain subdomains as a SAN domain. Is in conjunction with the certificate validation which is only of a domain type (DV certificate) and is automatic.
If more different (unrelated) domains must be secured, use a SAN certificate with a higher level of validation, e.g. GeoTrust True BusinessID.

Validation method

The SSL certificate issue process means sending an email message to a previously selected domain email address from the SSL certificate request (admin, administrator, hostmaster, webmaster, postmaster), or to the domain owner e-mail address (from the domain register; for a CZ domain, the CZ.NIC register). You can just confirm every detail about the requested SSL certificate in the received message and the verification process is finished and, in turn, the SSL certificate is issued and sent to the technical contact of the customer.

Certificate issuance time

If you enter a correct CSR file to your order and make the payment online (credit card), your SSL certificate will be issued automatically in a couple of minutes.

Notice: In rare cases, the issuance can be delayed due to one of the following reasons:

  • the authority performs a random security check of verified certificates and this can delay DV certificate issuance until the check (performed by an authority employee) is finished.
  • The domain for which the certificate is ordered contains a forbidden word (e.g. bank) or phrase, or a name protected by a trademark (e.g. Facebook, large enterprise or corporation names). In this case, the authority can carry out additional applicant verification or reject the certificate order.
  • The owner email address which serves to send the verification message cannot be automatically determined

If the certificate is not issued in the above-mentioned standard time, feel free to contact our Customer Support, which will help you to resolve the problem.

Certificate validity

The SSL certificate is valid from the date when its validation is finished and the certificate is issued. The validity period runs from this date for the period (of years) selected in the SSL certificate order.

Certificate reissue

You can have your certificate reissued (if, for example, you delete your private key) any time and for FREE, if necessary. To successfully reissue the certificate it is necessary to supply a new CSR file which contains the same data as the original order.

Certificate renewal (RENEW)

The SSL certificate renewal process can be started 90 days before the end of the validity period. Do not worry about losing the remaining time of the certificate validity. This period will be added to the renewed certificate and the unused days will be rounded up to months. The remaining period can only be added when you order the SSL certificate renewal and pay for it at least 17 days before expiration.
