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!

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

thanks

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.

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