More domain security support

The SSL certificate secures all subdomains of the primary domain listed in the certificate. The primary domain can't be changed during the validity period and the domain is listed in star form * in the certificate.
It means it is notthe SAN/UC (Subject Alternative Name/Unified Communications) technology which enables to secure more domains (subjects) under one SSL certificate.

Validation process

The SSL certificate issue process is fully manual and means validation of the owner of the domain for which the SSL certificate will be issued, validation of the organization of the certificate applicant and telephone verification of the contact person. Organizationdata is checked in theCommercial Register and organization contact data inpublic phone books. Final validation is performed by phone withthe authorization person listed in the order.
If the certificate authority can't find certain information publicly, it requests an additional form validation. The time to issue the certificate increases by the time needed to make additional verifications.

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