      I don't see wildcard available, am I missing something? I think you are talking about multi-domain certs, which are different than wildcard certs.

      So please, be careful, as your certs can be revoked, and probably no refund will be....

      Fair enough. Everyone should avoid losing $3 by purchasing yours at $58 instead. /s

      I think it lets you add up to 100 valid domains/subdomains to one cert, so yes. :D Unfortunately I never received my certificate after giving them the csr. :(

      Thanks to Silvenga as well. The cheapest SSL I ever got so far and HostMyBytes support was very quick for me as well.

      Have to say the same although I might have confused the support team so now I'm waiting. Let's see how it goes.

      You can also get a @VMbox VPS, and they give you a 1 year wildcard cert for free. They used to have VPS a plan for $3/mo, but now the lowest is $5/mo. Also $20/year is still available.

      Edit 2: Wow, awesome!! Really working and they were much faster with issuing than estimated (which had been next monday)! I think I'll grab one more for some more subdomains. Very recommended and thanks a lot, @pr0be!

      It's not 100% the same since there are much more work to do than create a CSR for *.domain.com. Good thing is that it will support a.domain.com, b.help.com and c.billing.com in one cert.

      Anyone know if it's possible in the future to add more domains/subdomains to the same cert?

      Certs, once issued, are obviously non-editable. You just request a new one from them with a different (expanded) set of domains. As a bonus that way you also shift the expiration date some months into the future.

      Ya, that's what I thought. But if I get a new cert, can it be part of a tld that's been issued? Like I have a.domain.com in the first cert then 2 months later I need b.domain.com, would that work with their system?

      Sure, they don't check if they already issued you certs with some of the domains you add to a new one.

      Another way of doing this, is e.g. if you added 50 domains, now want to have 51, but also want to avoid re-verifying them all, is to just get a cert for that 1 extra domain, and then use SNI on your server to figure out whether to send the 50-domain cert or the 1-domain new one depending on which domain is requested. And keep getting new certs as you go, each for a small number of domains. Might get hard to keep track of all the expiration dates, though.

      (inb4 yes SNI is well supported in all browsers and OSes that matter, there is no reason to avoid it).

      That, my friend, is too much work for a couple of dollars a year. I would rather sleep 2 more hours than to save a couple of dollars and get cans of monster or red bull to keep me awake through the day.

      Yeah, but up until recently the "couple of dollars" wildcard certs weren't as widely available.

      And if you were going to do the recreate cert thing to add domains with WoSign, what I described is just a simpler way to achieve the same, at least if you had a considerable number of domains on it in the first place.

      Do not spread misinformation. You're making people lose money.

      I guess your target market does not include WinXP or Android (older devices) then? You can't just say "they should upgrade if they want to see my site" if I'm losing money for each visitor that can't see my site.

      Everyone, there is still a big traffic share whose clients do NOT support SNI and thus SNI shall not yet be relied upon for production/money sites.

      Unless you like losing money, of course.

      The only problematic combination that is even remotely relevant today, is not just WinXP, it's Internet Explorer on WinXP. Yes, people can use SNI just fine on WinXP if they install Chrome/Firefox/etc.

      As for IE, I just checked https://top.mail.ru/ global stats, Windows XP is 7.6% overall, IE is 5.8% overall (combined for all versions, including those which afaik will not install on WinXP). So how much is the SNI-problematic group, a simple estimate tells us 0.076*0.058 = 0.0044, less than a half percent at most.

      Not to mention that if a person still uses old IE on old WinXP, something tells me they are not in the most profitable group around, no matter what you sell.

      Not willing to upgrade your computer does not mean not having money to do so. And 0.5% is not a value low enough to simply discard. That is what I meant - not that they're my target market.

      That might be the traffic you want - how would you know if they can't even access your site?

      I locked out almost all Mac OS users by using a 8192 bit rsa key. Turns out Apple broke compatibility with a patch in 2006(!) and still has not fixed it. I don't know if Chrome relies on the same libraries, but it works with Firefox (brings its own I think).

      I don't understand why they won't fix it? Is this some NSA plot to weaken cryptography or wat :D [/conspiracy]

      Yet again you've proven you know nothing about business.

      Every extra client matters, moreover when each one can make you in upwards of $1k.

      EDIT: If you're such a traffic management expert, who can predict and analyze trends and data properly, what are you doing here instead of making a killing on CPAs? This is getting ridiculous...

      I'd guess that people who're willing to stay with XP are also more likely to stay with the vanilla IE as well. So an estimate would be, like, 25% of XP users are using vanilla IE, make it 1.9% overall.

      According to Baidu Statistics1, IE 6.0 is 4.69% overall.

      You could have chosen to receive the Chinese version of the certificate, then it would say "CA 沃通免费SSL证书 G2" :) Still says "free", but now in Chinese, so not plainly obvious. I chose this option, to me this way it looks unusual, more interesting and perhaps even carries a certain charm (in the past I learned a kanji or two, albeit for Japanese). However I don't use this to secure an eCommerce website, just my hobby one.

      That looks pretty strange in my opinion, like "Certificate made in China" (what's correct and nothing wrong with this in this case but you know, the "Made in China" Stuff :) ). But how I already wrote to dragon2611, for non-commercial stuff it doesn't matter much because it's something special as itself that such a site got a SSL.

      Is there something to select to get a wilcard certificate or are all certificate wilcard ones? I don't see the option on their website...

      If they give away wilcard certs for all free certs then do you know what's their business model? I mean startssl give free ssl for one year and one subdomain and you have to pay if you want more but if you get 3 years free wilcard then what more would you buy? :)

      Sigh, try to read already. WoSign supports 100 arbitrary domains/subdomains in one cert, StartSSL supports 1 domain + 1 subdomain in one cert.

      Spent 20 minutes validating domains with WoSign, only to get a 504 Gateway timeout when submitting the order...

      Waited a bit and tried again (using "Website control verification"+wget the second time around...much quicker than waiting for email delivery!), and the order went through the second time. About 2 hours later, I got an email saying the cert was ready.

      Any idea if I need to validate each domain all over again if I want to add a new domain in the future?
