Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to deploy my application with following domains:

domain.com, www.domain.com - no ssl required, static pages only

sub.domain.com - ssl required

Can I buy SSL cert only for sub.domain.com or do I need to buy wildcard cert for my case?

The short answer is: Yes you can. The item you need to look for is Subject Alternative Names (SANs) you can purchase one of these from VeriSign, from 1-3years.

Hope this helps you!
