What is the SAN limit on my Akamai certificate?

There is a hard limit of 100 hostnames on a SAN, both for the Let's Encrypt, Symantec or Third-party certificate options.

 

 

We do however recommend a max of 40-50 hostnames as the number of packets increase during the SSL handshake with increasing hostnames, which can negatively impact performance of a site. This is for performance-driven customers.
