i have a project where i need to use dynamic subdomains for each user account over https, lets say:

So as long as i understand i should buy a Wildcard SSL certificate, i was doing that on rapidSSL but before i buy it I read on some forums that it requires a unique IP for each subdomain, that is impossible for me since i will have thousands of thousands of users.

This is true? what should i buy? this will work for me:?

Yes, wildcard SSL certificates are real thing, it will work. See on the apache wiki how to configure it.
