Cloudways is a leading cloud hosting platform that provides trusted and secure managed hosting solutions to its clients. Security is an important consideration of websites with multiple subdomains. In this context, SSL certificates are an essential requirement for subdomains.

Let's Encrypt SSL Certificate

In April 2016, Cloudways introduced Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates to secure clients’ online communication, authentication and encryption processes. Now, on the request of our customers, we are introducing single SSL certificates that can work on multiple domains simultaneously.

Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificates Save Time and Money

Mid and large websites (particularly ecommerce stores) usually operate on multiple subdomains. If you have a multi-domain website or online store, you are well aware of the fact that you need separate SSL certificates for every sub domain. This means spending a significant amount of money every year for ensuring the safety of the subdomains. Another important issue is the time required to keep track of the validity of these certificates. Each individual certificate needs to be renewed individually. In short, multiple SSL certificates for subdomains are a huge hassle that drain valuable time and resources.

Cloudways solves all these issues through Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates that could be deployed on multiple domains. This means that the Cloudways users could now install a single Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate and then use the certificate across all their domains and subdomains. In this scenario, there is just one SSL certificate to update. The best part is that since Let’s Encrypt certificates are free, Cloudways users do not have to spend a dime on adding these certificates to their domains and subdomains.
