Industry standards compliance reminder

For public and private certificates, Certificate Authorities (CAs) don't accept abbreviations for these parts of an address in your certificate orders or organization pre-validation requests:

  • State or Province*

To configure the domain validation scope for your account, in the sidebar menu, click Settings > Preferences. On the Division Preference page, expand Advanced Settings. In the Domain Control Validation (DCV) section, under Domain Validation Scope, you'll see the new settings.


We fixed a bug where we were limiting the maximum allowed number of SANS to 10 on Wildcard SSL certificate reissue and new certificate orders.

Now, when reissuing or ordering a new Wildcard SSL certificate, you can add up to 250 SANs.
