More domain security support

The SSL certificate supports SAN/UC technology (Subject Alternative Name/Unified Communications), which enables you to secure more domains (subjects) by one SSL certificate. In this way the purchase price to achieve SSL security for more web projects can be significantly reduced.
The certificate enables obtaining 100 additional domains (subjects) to the primary domain. Together you can secure up to 101 unrelated domains. At least 4 SAN/UC can be ordered.
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 domain with www, the certificate will be valid for the separate domain without www too. The certificate then contains two alternative names of the subject: and This option is not valid for other combinations (e.g.

Usage examples

  • (FQDN - Fully Qualified Domain Name)
  • (subdomain)
  • (Microsoft Exchange service)
  • (internal domain name)
  • EXCHANGE01 (internal server name / NetBIOS name)
  • (private IP address)
  • (public IP address)
Notice:For EV certificates, it is not possible to use an internal server name or IP address as SAN.

Certificate validation method

To ensure maximum security, the EV SSL certificate issue method is more exhaustive during the validation phase, and it takes more time to issue it than for a general OV certificate. Information is validated against more sources and certified documents have to be sent. The domain owner's details for which the SSL certificate will be issued are checked, the applicant's organization is verified, and the contact person and their employment relationship are verified too.
The organization‘s data is checked in the Commercial Register, the contact data in public phone books, and the domain owner is verified against the available domain operator databases.
The contact person's employment relationship is verified using the form supplied by the certificate authority, which must be confirmed by an authorized person in the organization (HR manager, head). In turn, this person is validated by phone. Final validation is performed by phone with the authorization person listed in the order. If the certificate authority cannot 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

Certificate issuance time

If you enter a correct CSR file to your order and make the payment, the validation and issuance process of your SSL certificate is generally finished in two working weeks.

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 (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.

Certificate seal display

Information about security on your website can be supported by displaying the seal generated by the GeoTrust certificate authority. It is a dynamic image from which the user can immediately recognize that the site is secured by an SSL certificate. By clicking the seal, it is possible to verify all the information about the certificate authority and the SSL certificate validity. You can select one of three graphic variants of the seal. We strongly recommend using the seal on your website!
