Some services already allow for wildcard certificates so that a "single"
server serving multiple subdomains would be covered by a single, more
Thus you can have as many FQDNs as long as they all end in mycom.com for one
low, low price. Combine this with an SSL infrastructure product and it
sounds like you come up with the cheapest possible solution.

Because of this, I'd like to see someone use something like the F5 BIG-IP to
really screw with Verisign. If you combine F5's SSL termination and their
HTTP header parsing you could do the following:
Instead of having www.mycom.com and service.mycom.com and sales.mycom.com,
www.mycom.com and www.mycom.com/service and www.mycom.com/sales.
The header parsing would allow all of those to operate on different
servers - with different support, development, etc - but technically, they
are all the same FQDN!!! I would love to see this! :-)
