I want to protect the login form of my blog application with an SSL certificate and I'd also like to have some subdomains set up for things like the Mint web stats package. Is this even possible using a non-wildcard certificate, e.g. the GoDaddy "Turbo" one that costs about $20? I don't really want to fork out for the cost of a wildcard certificate.
To be clear, the only place where I want to use SSL is within the main blog application and not on any of the subdomains. I think I read somewhere that you can't do this because if you're using SSL the Apache virtual hosts have to be configured to use IP addresses. I'd like to get a definitive answer on this.
