Help with SSL

4 posts in this topic

Posted

I have a website that has a URL like this:

http://domain.com/

I have an images folder like:

http://domain.com/images/picture.jpg

I have mapped a sub-domain called "images" to redirect the client to the "/images" folder like this:

http://images.domain.com/picture.jpg

I did this to help with speeding up multiple server requests. At the moment, I do not have the luxury of multiple servers, and this is a practice Google recommends.

Anyway, I would like to get an SSL certificate for my site. If I assigned the following as the SSL domain:

*.domain.com

Would this allow the SSL certificate to validate everything on the following domains?

https://domain.com/ <--- (Notice no sub-domain, not even "www")

https://www.domain.com/

https://images.domain.com/

https://css.domain.com/

https://javascript.domain.com/

https://members.domain.com/

domain.com = your main domain

images.

css.

javascript.

members.

are all sub domains

Sounds like you might need a UCC SSL cert.

Is that a Wildcard SSL certificate?

Yes, a wildcard SSL certificate is what you need. Namecheap offer a Comodo Wildcard certificate for $85/year.
