Free Wildcard SSL Certificates

CMS Wales is very pleased to announce that we now offer Free Wildcard SSL Certificates for all our hosted clients as standard.

CMS Wales has been issuing Free SSL Certificates to all hosted clients for over a year (since March 16th 2017) and have been working towards providing free wildcard certificates ever since. We are therefore very pleased to announce the service is now active and we now offer Free Wildcard SSL Certificates for all our hosted clients as of today (March 23rd 2018).

What is a Wildcard SSL Certificate?

While a standard SSL Certificate secures your main domain, a Wildcard Certificate allows you to secure all your subdomains too, with a single certificate!

So instead of having getting separate certificates for subdomains, you can now use a single wildcard certificate for all main domains and subdomains

A wildcard certificate can secure any number of subdomains on our base domain (e.g. *.mywebsite.com). 

All clients already using one of our free SSL certificates will automatically be converted to a wildcard certificate at their next automatic certificate renewal. If you need to convert a certificate immediately, please contact the office and we will convert it for you, free of charge.
