I purchased an inexpensive SSL Cert from GoDaddy. Right now everything on production is hosted off of
www.domain.com. When specifying the common name would a wildcard (i.e.
*.domain.com) cover the case of a lack of a third-level domain such as domain.com? Just to be sure, I made it for
www.domain.com rather than a wildcard. If it matters, I will be using with nginx and a mod_passenger.
If I want to cover everything including
www.domain.com etc., would a wildcard be the proper cert? Does the inexpensive GoDaddy cert ($12.99 / year) cover wildcard certs (it didn't seem to for me)?
