Using Wildcard SSL certificate which cover many subdomains (*.mydomain.com) is a good way to avoid browser side warning. But they can't cover same domain names with different tlds (mydomain.org, mydomain.com).

    SSL wildcard certificates don't work reliably in all browsers, and so their use is not often encouraged.

      We have been using wildcard certificates for the past year+ with no problems. It greatly reduced our cost for certificates and has made management of the certificates easier. I have yet to see a browser that did not support it.

      I haven't found any they don't work in from this century... we use them extensively on heavily trafficed sites.

      If I'm missing something, I'd sure appreciate more info. :)
