Hi
Do you know if goddady permits with the Multiple Domains UCC  to add 5 total names to one certificate.

Typically I want this list of names (with external and internal server and dns):

    SERVERNAME

    SERVERNAME.COMPANY.LOCAL

    AUTODISCOVER.COMPANY.COM

    MAIL.COMPANY.COM

Thanks,

Regards,

Fabien

A Subject Alternative Name (SAN), also known as Unified Communications (UC), certificate does allow multiple names. The maximum number of names you can add depends on whatever limit the provider enforces. At GoDaddy, you can buy a UC certificate which supports 5 names, or 10 names and so on.

If you purchase a 5 name certificate, then you can certainly list the above 4 names quite happily on that certificate. You will want to specify mail.company.com as the Common Name ("CN") of the certificate, and the other three names as the alternative names. This maximises support for any older devices which do not support SAN certificates, as they will typically just read the common name.

You should certainly be cognisant of the fact that "intranet" names, such as .local, .lan, .internal etc are not going to be permitted on SSL certificates beyond 2016 - and GoDaddy will actively prohibit you from purchasing one if the expiry will be after November 2015. The SSL certificate industry opted to eliminate intranet names, so your inclusion of "SERVERNAME" and "SERVERNAME.COMPANY.LOCAL" may not work depending on the length of the certificate you purchase. If Exchange is properly configured and the necessary changes to DNS have been made, then those names are certainly not required, and you can simply add autodiscover.company.com and mail.company.com to your certificate. You MUST have made the proper settings changes to the URLs Exchange is using, and ensure those can be properly resolved, for this to work though.
