Over the years, publicly-trusted CAs have issued SSL certificates with domain names of different types. The most common is the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). This is a certificate that has been issued with a name registered with an entity that manages a top-level domain (TLD), for example server1.domain.com.

There is one controller of domain.com and that controller determines who can have any name under that root, such as server1.domain.com
