You would like to buy an SSL certificate? Ordering your SSL certificate is very simple. Once you have selected a suitable certificate click on “Order” and tick the desired term in the next step. Afterwards complete your information and select how you wish to pay. You will then receive an order confirmation by clicking on our Key Control Management Centre (KCM). You can let us know any further configuration requirements you may have, add further SAN domains, if you wish and complete the order through the ticketing system.


Thanks to the GeoTrust® RapidSSL Wildcard certificate you can extend the security of a certificate with the aid of wildcard algorithms (asterisks and dot before the top level domain name) to any number of subdomains that are hosted on one server.

The validation of domain names and certificate holders (e.g. checking of Whois entry, email information and telephone number if needed) prior to the certificate being issued, makes this SSL certificate particularly fitting, if website visitors should recognize a high degree of security and trustworthiness.

The GeoTrust® RapidSSL Wildcard certificate guarantees, depending on browser capability and the encryption installed on the web server, an encryption of up to 256 bit SSL. This ensures that data are kept securely confidential between web server and web browser. The lock symbol in the browser additionally serves to highlight the security measures in place. You are covered against misuse of the wildcard certificate to the sum of $ 5,000.

If you buy an SSL certificate from Keyweb, the configuration of your SSL certificates can easily be made via the customer menu (KCM).
