    How to fill in the domains bound to an SSL certificate during the application?

    After purchasing the SSL certificate, you need to go to the SSL Certificate Service console to submit the materials for review. The SSL Certificate Service console will prompt you the type and number of domain names based on the certificate you purchased, as shown in the following figure:

    Note:

    To ensure that your SSL certificate can be issued and HTTPS can be used properly, please fill in information about the bound domains correctly.

    Based on the brand of your certificate and the domains bound, SSL Certificate Service will offer the corresponding parent domain for free. Details are described as follows:

                   Certificate Type
    Rule
    GlobalSign TrustAsia (OV/EV) TrustAsia (DV) GeoTrust
    If the bound domain is not prefixed with `www.`, the `www.` sub-domain is offered for free. No If the bound domain is a primary domain, the `www.` sub-domain is offered for free. If the bound domain is a primary domain, the `www.` sub-domain is offered for free. If the bound domain is a primary domain, the `www.` sub-domain is offered for free.
    If the bound domain is a general or wildcard domain, the parent domain is offered for free. Yes Yes Yes Yes
    Note:

    • If the bound domain is a primary domain, some brands will offer the www. sub-domain for free. For example, if the bound domain is tencent.com, the www.tencent.com sub-domain will be offered for free.
    • If the bound domain is a general or wildcard domain, some brands will offer the corresponding parent domain for free. For example, if the bound domain is *.tencent.com, tencent.com will be offered for free.
    • A parent domain will only be offered for free if the general or wildcard domain is of level three or above.

    Wildcard domains

    A wildcard domain is one with a wildcard, for example, *.tencent.com and *.cloud.tencent.com. It includes all sub-domains at the same level.

    Note:

    Cross-level domains are not supported. For example, *.tencent.com does not include the *.cloud.tencent.com child domains.
