What is the difference between a standard SSL & a SSL Wildcard?

Last updated January 7th, 2019

While a single standard SSL certificate covers one single domain a wildcard certificate covers not just your domain, but all sub-domains for the chosen domain.

For Example:

  • A standard SSL Certificate would work on one domain only, such as exampledomain.co.nz.
  • A wildcard Wildcard SSL Certificate would work on, support.exampledomain.co.nz and info.exampledomain.co.nz etc, along with exampledomain.co.nz.
