What Is a UCC?

what is a ucc certificate

A Unified Communication Certificate (or UCC ) is a digital security certificate which allows multiple hostnames to be protected by a single certificate.

UC certificates are also known as Subject Alternate Name (or SAN ) certificates, multi-domain certificates or Exchange certificates .

All UCCs:

  • CAN secure up to 2000 entries. (The first 3 non-wildcard are free, with an additional charge per entry after that.)
  • CAN  be used on unlimited multiple servers concurrently.
  • CAN  be reissued to change domains at any time without extra fees or costs.
  • CAN  be used on unlimited IP addresses with multiple, concurrent private keys (which is great for hosting and virtual hosts).

The entries in any UCC:

  • CAN be a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).
  • CAN be a “common name” (a single-worded server name) but the certificate will not be effective past November 2015  per CA/B Forum guidelines.
  • CAN  be a wildcard domain name (i.e. * or * ) but NOT  a multiple-level wildcard (like *.* ).
