Help with SSL

Question

Posted

I have a website that has a URL like this:
[color=#0000ff]http[b]:[/b][i]//[/i]domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][/color]

I have an images folder like:
[color=#0000ff]http[b]:[/b][i]//[/i]domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][color=#ff0000]images[/color][i]/[/i]picture.jpg[/color]

I have mapped a sub-domain called "images" to redirect the client to the "/images" folder like this:
[color=#0000ff]http[b]:[/b][i]//[/i][color=#ff0000]images[/color].domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i]picture.jpg[/color]

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:
[color=#0000ff][color=#ff0000][u]*[/u][/color].domain[b].[/b]com[i][/i][/color]

Would this allow the SSL certificate to validate everything on the following domains?
[color=#0000ff]https[b]:[/b][i]//[/i]domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][/color] <--- [i](Notice no sub-domain, not even "www")[/i]
[color=#0000ff]https[b]:[/b][i]//[/i][color=#ff0000]www[/color].domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][/color]
[color=#0000ff]https[b]:[/b][i]//[/i][color=#ff0000]images[/color].domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][/color]
[color=#0000ff]https[b]:[/b][i]//[/i][color=#ff0000]css[/color].domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][/color]
[color=#0000ff]https[b]:[/b][i]//[/i][color=#ff0000]javascript[/color].domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][/color]
[color=#0000ff]https[b]:[/b][i]//[/i][color=#ff0000]members[/color].domain[b].[/b]com[i]/[/i][/color]

domain.com = your main domain

images.
css.
javascript.
members.

are all sub domains

Sounds like you might need a UCC SSL cert.

Yes, a wildcard SSL certificate is what you need. [url="http://www.namecheap.com/ssl-certificates/comodo.aspx"]Namecheap[/url] offer a Comodo Wildcard certificate for $85/year.
