RapidSSL certificates are a cost-effective alternative to other certificate solutions if data
encryption is the only feature that is required. All these certificates use domain validation.
Certificates are issued within just a few minutes.
RapidSSL offers domain-validated SSL certificates. RapidSSL lives up to its name: the issuing of the SSL
certificates generally takes no more than a few minutes.
The RapidSSL product issues one certificate for a single domain. Certificates are recognised by most
popular web browsers.
RapidSSL Wildcard is a certificate that covers all subdomains within a domain. For example:
news.mywebsite.co.uk, blog.mywebsite.co.uk, ... The number of possible subdomains is unlimited.
