Anatomy of a Wildcard SSL Certificate
Every Wildcard begins with an asterisk * or "star". The star represents the wildcard part of the SSL certificate. The star can be any sub domain that shares the same base domain. All fully-qualified-domains using a Wildcard must share the same base domain. Every virtual site that you want to use the Wildcard on must be of the form something.base_domain.com (or just plain base_domain.com).

Q: How quick can I get it?
A: True BusinessID Wildcard SSL takes about 1-2 days to complete.
Q: Will I have to submit any documentation?
Q: Can I use one IP address with all the sub domain names?
A: Yes, because the same certificate will be used to secure all the sub domains associated with a domain name you can share one IP with all the subs. You can configure name-based virtual hosts instead of IP-based virtual hosts.
Q: Do all of the domains using the Wildcard have to have the same base domain?
A: Yes, a Wildcard certificate issued to, say, *.example.com will only work for anything.example.com.
Q: Can you recommend an SSL certificate that doesn't require all sites to have the same base domain?
A: Yes, the True BusinessID Multi-domain will allow you to secure up to 25 mixed domains.
Q: Will a Wildcard work for just the base domain?
A: Yes! GeoTrust will add a Subject Alternative Name (SAN) to the wildcard for the base/root domain. For example, a Wildcard issued to *.example.com will also work for just example.com.
Q: When I generate the CSR for a Wildcard, what do I enter for the domain?
A: The Common Name (domain) in the CSR should be *.yourdomain.com. The * is literal and must be included in the CSR request.
