We can install a free wildcard certificate for your (sub)domain with www and for all first-order subdomains on this domain.

What is a wildcard certificate?

If you have many subdomains on a particular domain, wildcard allows you to install SSL faster, skipping the limits (10 per week for one domain).

For example, if you have multiple subdomains, like landing1.your-domain-here.com, landing2.your-domain-here.com and so on, we can install a SSL for all subdomains (already existed and all created in the future) in *your-domain-here.com domain.

Note: Before you can add a CNAME record that will enable us to install the wildcard certificate, make sure that the CNAME records for your subdomains are redirected to cname.landingi.com. 

Add a wildcard CNAME record

1. Log in to your domain provider's account.

2. Find your domain and edit the DNS zone.

3. Add a new CNAME record. Copy and paste the following values:

Type CNAME
Host: _acme-challenge.yourdomain.com
Points to: _acme-challenge.landingi.com

Note: some domain providers require that you add a dot at the end of the record.

Your records should look something like this:


4. After adding this CNAME record, let us know via chat that you want to install wildcard Let’s Encrypt certificate.

5. It takes up to 3 days to install the certificate.
