The Multi-domain SAN (Subject Alternative Name) SSL Certificate secures multiple domain names. You can secure up to 100 different domains with a single SSL. It is best to use Multi-Domain SSL with you have related websites, and if you don’t want your websites to seem connected to one another, then you shouldn’t use the SAN SSL.

This type of SSL can also be used with shared hosting, or rather any kind of hosting. If you have more than one website, consider using a SAN SSL to secure all of your websites. It is cost-effective than when having to buy separate SSLs.

Remember it will cost less when you purchase one SAN SSL than to purchase multiple SSLs. And setting SSLs can be time-consuming, and thus have one SSL for multiple websites is actually time effective.

SAN SSL lets you add more websites on a later stage when you create more sites – as you are able to add up to 100 websites. You can add a website in increments of 5’s 10’s 15’s etc.
