Acmetek’s Platinum Partnerships With Symantec & Thawte Brings You A Free SAN With Purchase of Your SSL

Acmetek’s Platinum Partnership with the worlds leading Certificate Authorities (CA’s) Symantec and Thawte are able to bring to Acmetek Clients a Free domain SAN with the enrollment
of an SSL/TLS Certificate.

 

This means your website will work when your clients visit your website by either www or without. No more forwarding of website traffic or paying extra for an extra Subject Alternative Name (SAN) domain. Something that should automatically come by default. Many CA’s the world over do not provide this functionality to their clients which causes a technical nightmare to web developers, and Network administrators. But Acmetek is able to provide you with a simpler solution.

Here is how it works:

  1. When enrolling for a standard Symantec or Thawte SSL product with a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) Common Name of www.domain.com (example) Symantec/Thawte will automatically add the base domain of domain.com as a free SAN to the certificate.
  2. If the Common Name of the CSR has only domain.com then Symantec/Thawte will automatically add www to the Certificate.
  3. For Wildcard Certificates products, when your CSR has the Required Common Name of *.domain.com, Symantec/Thawte will add the base domain of domain.com as a free SAN.

Products benefiting from free SAN from this change:

Symantec                            Thawte
