I have purchased a wildcard subdomain for one of my domain names. Here is the issue I am running into:
I have a WordPress plugin that integrates with a 3rd party membership site. The membership site issues a member alias that is interpreted into a subdomain url....example Member "John Doe" get "JohnDoe.domain.com". These subdomains are not redirected, just used as a member identifier by my plugin. I have thousands of members.
***Note***these subdomains are not expressly inserted into my bluehost subdomains listed. There is simply too many subdomains to easily do that.
Should I expect my wildcard cert to still "secure" my "unnamed" subdomains or will I have to expressly write in my subdomains into my hosting service (Bluehost)?
Ultimately I want to have any subdomain, anyone ever creates, to automatically be secured under my domain name with no effort on my part.
