    If I set up a main domain called DOMAIN.COM, then underneath that I have 5 other subdomains added as "add on" domains, for example:

    APP1.DOMAIN.COM
    APP2.DOMAIN.COM
    APP3.DOMAIN.COM
    APP4.DOMAIN.COM
    APP5.DOMAIN.COM

    Then I want to give the main domain and the sub domain an SSL certificate.

    Do I need to buy ONE SSL cert or 5? (I would assume 5).

    What about IP address? Can they all share the same ip address if they have ssl certs and are add on domains?

    SSL is issued on domain and dedicated IP is mandatory requirement for it. For subdomains you will have to purchase separate ssl certificate and each will have to assign dedicated IP.

    Yes, you are totally right.

    But I am getting wildcard ssl cert to take care of the ssl requirements and assigning each sub domain to a unique ip.

    In order to set it up though and give the subdomains a unique ip, I have followed this tutorial from cpanel: Assigning Dedicated IPs to Subdomains

    This will all make my life easier I think!.

    LOL famous last words.
