The Comodo Answer To A Free Wildcard SSL Certificate For Testing

It is very natural to hesitate before committing to a long-term purchase of a Secure Sockets Layer product if there is no past experience with the Certificate Authority. One way to get around this is to offer an option for a free Wildcard SSL certificate for testing out the service or to look to any SSL/TLS product to allow the IT administrator to try out the system.

At Comodo, we offer two different options to satisfy these needs and this natural hesitancy in buying something for one, two or three years and not knowing how it will perform. Before talking specifically about a free Wildcard SSL certificate for testing, let's take a few minutes and look at our free certificate option.

The 90 Day Free Comodo SSL

One of our most popular options for testing out Comodo SSL/TLS products is our free 90-day certificate. While this is not a wildcard, it does give you the option to test a site for free for up to three months if you want to run extensive testing before launch. Most of our competitors only offer 30 days for these products, which may not provide you the time and the ability to run the tests you require or to actually get a good feel for the value of a Comodo SSL certificate.

Of course, if you don't need that much time for site testing, you still have the full use of the product for the full 90 days. During this time, you can review our other products and make a determination if a Wildcard, Multi-Domain (SAN) or even a UC certificate may be the best option for your needs.

Our free 90 day option offers you all the security of our other products. This means 2048 bit keys, up to 256 bit encryption and full customer service and support. We are confident that you will continue to use Comodo products, so this investment in your website is our way of introducing you to the benefits of having us as your Certificate Authority.

It is also important to mention that you will also enjoy 99.9% recognition of our free SSL by browsers and devices. Our root certificates have long been embedded in trust stores on browsers and devices, eliminating the trust problems found with some of the cheap SSL/TLS products on the market today.

Move Up to Wildcards for Testing

While many people think of wildcards just as an SSL/TLS product for securing a website, it can also be through of as a free Wildcard SSL certificate for testing.

In other words, if you are constantly testing new subdomains or creating demo or trial sites, you can see the free Wildcard SSL certificate for testing as a great option. You will just need to purchase the wildcard product and then add on as many additional testing subdomains, demos or other types of trial websites at absolutely no additional cost. All these add-ons can be done for free without the need to purchase a separate SSL/TLS product to run the tests.

Our Refund Policy

Another consideration that isn't a truly free Wildcard SSL certificate for testing, but it is certainly an important factor, is our customer-friendly refund policy. On all of our SSL certificates we offer a full 30 day refund option from the date of generation of the files from your Certificate Signing Request.

With this thirty days you have the time needed to complete the install, migrate the certificate and keys to all servers on the network and then experience the advantage of using the most trusted certificates online. Throughout this time, as well as the full one, two or three years of the certificate we provide tech support and customer service through our website or by phone, whichever is most convenient.

Customers that have used Comodo in the past keep coming back. We offer SSL/TLS technology and website security, from small to multinational sized businesses, just look for our Comodo TrustLogo site seal on the page and our name on the SSL certificate. Once you start looking and noticing the Certificate Authority you will be surprised at just how frequently we are the CA for the sites you use frequently.
