How to Secure Your Primary Domain for Free When Ordering an SSL Certificate

banner-howto

When you order an SSL certificate from us, your primary domain name will be secured for free. So, if you order an SSL certificate for www.HostingAccountDomain.com, then HostingAccountDomain.com.com will be added as a Subject Alternative Name automatically.

So you can secure both www.HostingAccountDomain.com and HostingAccountDomain.com with just one certificate.

This works for any subdomain, not just for the www. prefix. You can order a certificate for login.HostingAccountDomain.com and HostingAccountDomain.com will be added to the certificate.

Here’s a sample certificate where you see both the subdomain and the primary domain secured:

Certificate Example

Note that this is only applicable to single-level domains. For example, www.test.HostingAccountDomain.com will not secure test.HostingAccountDomain.com.

This works for all of the certificates available through Winhost!
