What is a wildcard certificate?

 A wildcard certificate secures domain names along with unlimited one-level subdomains of the domain. For example, a Wildcard certificate issued to *.mydomain.com can be used to secure the following host names:

  • mydomain.com
  • www.mydomain.com
  • login.mydomain.com
  • secure.mydomain.com
  • support.mydomain.com, etc.

Namecheap offers PositiveSSL Wildcard, EssentialSSL Wildcard and PremiumSSL Wildcard certificates.
