    Hy,

    I had an ssl cert for a few bucks for a year form alphassl.

    It was good for one domain and its subdomains like this:

    domain.tld

    *.domain.tld

    How should I reference those? :)

    //as ive seen all sorts of certs labeled as wildcard..

    The other -important- question would be how much do these cost today?

    I'm only interested in to experiment for now..

    and yea ive google-d and got startssl already :).

    Thanks for your help!

    well i paid no more than 10$ for it. guess it was a special offer of some kind.

    am i right to see that certs cannot be renewd just need to ask for a new-one?

    thanks

    VMBox or almost any other SingleHop reseller can offer them for free.

    If you got an AlphaSSL wildcard for $10 a year that's pretty good! We resell Geotrust SSLs (which include AlphaSSL wildcards) and pay more than $10/year for them.

    Wait, how do they do that?  It looks like you can get one with the purchase of a $6.00 per month vps.  Are they just losing money on the deal until you've stayed a fairly long period?

    I'll offer you a GlobalSign AlphaSSL Wildcard Certificate for $55/year. If you find it cheaper, let me know, we can work something out.

    Right, but same question--how does SingleHop do that?  Are they connected with GlobalSign somehow?  Are wildcard certificates as scammy as domain validation certificates, where resellers pay just a few dollars for them but they're usually retailed at $50+?  It looks possible, though not nice, to get a $50 certificate by buying a $6/month vps for just one month.

    It's likely that they are under those "unlimited issuance" programs from GlobalSign: https://www.globalsign.eu/partners/resell-ssl.html

    They are listed as a Platinum partner, at least: https://www.globalsign.com/partners/platinum-partners.html
