What is a 6-in-1 SSL Certificate?

Last Updated: June 27, 2006 12:50 PM

A 6-in-1 SSL Certificate is an SSL certificate that can be used to secure the requestor's main Web site (e.g., yourpersonaldomainname.com) and up to six top-level domain variations that point to the same IP address as the main site - e.g., yourpersonaldomainname.net, yourpersonaldomainname.org, yourpersonaldomainname.info, yourpersonaldomainname.biz, yourpersonaldomainname.us.

Because an SSL certificate only works properly with the domain for which it is issued, pointing a domain to an IP used by another SSL-secured site normally will cause a certificate security error. The SSL 6-in-1 Certificate solves this problem for customers who have multiple domain names aliased to a single hosting account (i.e. DNS records for multiple TLDs point to the same account). A 6-in-1 SSL Certificate thus eliminates security warning errors that may scare off potential customers and other visitors to a supposedly secure Web site.

6-in-1 SSL Certificates are available as Turbo SSL and High Assurance SSL certificates. Note that domain-control validation must be completed for each of the domains supported by the certificate.
