    SSL Certificates

    Ok, I am somewhat confused on what kind of SSL Certificate I need.

    I have a backbone domain I run all my billing and helpdesk software one. With this domain I also use it as the server hostname (I think that's what it's called, I am kind of tired) and for my email system as well. It's the abbreviation of my website domain just as a .us TLD that is only 4 characters long.

    If I did, what kind of SSL Certificate would I need? I think I just want to have the SSL on my billing area and not my helpdesk or anything of that nature. So it would be and that is it.

    If I can get away with buying a single SSL Certificate instead of a wildcard SSL Certificate that would be best, $29.99 is a lot more appealing than $199.99.....

    Your help is greatly appreciated!

    A single domain SSL setup for would work fine.

    Also, namecheap are giving away Comodo SSL's with any domain purchase

    I purchased the GeoTrust QuickSSL from and it works fine for my domain, but I have not tried it with a subdomain yet.

    Thanks for the replies, I now know what I am doing (Somewhat!). I purchased a regular SSL certificate from for just the billing aspect of my domain.

    Once again, thanks for your help!

    Wildcards can be good later on when you got a bunch of servers. A great way to offer shared SSL on all your servers without having to buy tons of individual certs.

    But yeah, if all you want to do is have a secure billing area, you will want to check out the standard SSL certs from GoDaddy
