In this competition between two popular wildcard SSL certificates, which will come out on top?
(Cue our announcer-style voice.) In a battle for the heavyweight title of the best wildcard SSL certificate, we have two competitors. In corner one, our first contender is an AlphaSSL wildcard certificate. In the other corner is our second competitor, Comodo SSL wildcard certificate. Which type of wildcard will be victorious and why?
It’s always a good idea to know where your SSL certificates’ private keys are located, as they are the key (pun intended) to authorizing that your domain is the real deal. Whether you’re using a Comodo SSL certificate private key or one from another certificate authority (CA), it’s vital that you know where it is and keep it safe. Why is it so important? Because anyone who gets access to your private keys can spoof your website since it will now be “authenticated” with the compromised private key.
Nowadays, every website needs an SSL certificate. Google saw to that with one of its browser updates last year. In 2019, if you’re still serving your website via HTTP, your users are seeing “Not Secure” next to your URL in their address bar.
