Single Domain

Single Domain SSL certificates (SD)  allows you to secure a single domain name (with and without www).

Validation and authentication of queries for content (web or email) is only done on the domain name.

For example the SD SSL  for mydomain.co.za would also protect:

  • mydomain.co.za
  • www.mydomain..co.za

 

Wildcard

WildCard SSL certificates (as denoted by a *)  allow you to secure unlimited number of first-level subdomains on a single domain name.

Validation and authentication of queries for content (web or email) is done on the domain name and its subdomains.

For example the WildCard SSL for *.mydomain.co.za would also protect:

  • mydomain.co.za
  • www.mydomain.co.za
  • shop.mydomain.co.za
  • mysubdomain.mydomain.co.za

 

R

Extended validation

Extended Validation SSL certificates (EV)  allows validation and authentication of queries for content (web or email) to be done at the organisation or legal entity level.

For example the EV SSL certificate for Google would be checked against the operational status and registration documents supplied by the company, and the domains, hosting servers and any other services would be queried and authenticated against this.
