    This will be my very first purchase and installation of a certificate and I have a very basic question.

    When I purchase the certificate will I be able to use it under every domain on that server?

    How will the server know that it needs to go to https://www.domain.com or https://subdomain.domain.com?

    Hello :)

    You will need to purchase the certificate for the domain name you want to use it on (including whether you prefer to use it on the www or non-www prefix). You can then setup a redirect so that all requests to the non-www prefix are redirected to the www-prefix for secure connections, or vice-versa.

    Thank you.

    Does this include all subdomains too?

    SO, will I purchase the certificate for domain.com to "cover" all subdomains?

    first.domain.com
    second.domain.com
    etc.
