Wildcard SSL Certifcates are Available Now
It was announced last year by Let’s Encrypt that they would be supplying free Wildcard SSL Certificates in January 2018 but it took a little bit longer. 20i.com tweeted today that they were available on their Web Hosting platform as long as you host with them and use their DNS.
Quoted by 20i.com:
All our free SSL certificates are now wildcard certificates, meaning that one wildcard SSL can now secure all subdomains on a single domain.
What are Wildcard SSL Certificates?
In a nutshell every domain name i.e. yourdomain.com can have unlimited Subdomains set up like sales.yourdomain.com. With a normal DV SSL certificate that just secures and encrypts the main domain name but with a DV Wildcard SSL certificate it includes all the Sub Domains as well.
Let’s Encrypt says:
We will initially only support base domain validation via DNS for wildcard certificates.
