Remember, the web page on which you place this QuickSSL Premium seal must use exactly the same domain that is in your QuickSSL Premium enrollment application. For instance, if the enrollment is for www.example.com, then the QuickSSL Premium registration is for that site, and does not include other fully qualified domains like www2.example.com.
