"Cheapsslsecurity is really flexible product for company starters including long term companies. Cheapsslsecurity offers affordable SSL Certificates. Which are really great product. Myself, I use Wildcard SSL by Comodo over a year with zero issues which is really surprise for so cheap Wildcard SSL. I would recommend this product to anyone."

"Very fast delivery. Installation was easy with no problems. If you are installing a wildcard SSL certificate on cPanel, you need to specify the actual domain name, don't try to install it on *.domain.com , you have to install it on each subdomain such as admin.domain.com, shop.domain.com,..etc. Use the same certificate for each subdomain you install. Good luck!"
