Domain Mapping in SSL

Good-morning!

OK, ... we are using a Wildcard SSL Certificate on this site and that means that all the sub-domains will uses SSL.

When we want to map a domain we are going to use this:

http://sub-domain.oursite. **/

What is the right thing to do here? Map it as it is or ....? Shouldn't there be an option to use https?

Your guidance will be much appreciated.

Thank You!

    Good-morning, Mr.Tom!

    Please can you and Mr. Barry take a look at this link: http://yoast.com/wordpress-ssl-setup/#comments

    Maybe he may find a way to implement a feature that can help us deactivate https for mapped domains. Obviously this is something I'm pretty sure you know but options such as these will be great.

    Thanks for the link! We will try to learn as much as we can with it.

    Have a great day!

    Greetings KnightHawkXIV,

    I am chiming in here as Tom had mentioned me but first and foremost when looking at that other post about yoast - you mentioned W3TC and that is asking for serious trouble.

    Any chance you could point out to me one instance where W3TC mentions the word MultiSite or any other indication that it is MultiSite compatible?

    Is your hosting indeed so bad and slow that it requires this type of caching?

    Or is the site getting a million plus hits a month?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Good-evening, Mr. Joe!

    Thanks for the wisdom! And no ..our hosting is world-class I must admit. And no ..the site is not even launch yet so we don't have more than 7 users. So I think you are right: W3 TC is not multi-site. compatible as I have found out already.

    We are grateful to Providence that W3 Total Cache offered us the warning when we tried that. Hate to think what would have happen if we didn't see that and keep trying to force multi-activate it.

    So we are going to remove it and run the site without any cacheing. Just hate to see good dollars that we spend on our MaxCDN account going to waste. The reason we want to integrate all that we think we need into the site now is that I have seen where making these major changes to a live site brought the whole thing down. Hope we can avoid this in the future.

    Thank you and have a great evening!

    Greetings T-chan,

    Thank you for your additional input.

    I am sorry to disappoint you and all respect to you, but there is no way that anyone can convince me that Host Gator is world class hosting no matter what the sales rhetoric claims.

    The proof is in the pudding and they are just a maximize profit corporate hosting farm like so many others without regard to performance.

    I have run one of their reseller plans for fun and to see what they were doing and often server load was very high and the sites were very slow during those times.

    I have seen loads (indicated in the cPanel upon log in) to be well above 5+ and on occasion above 20+ - which the the few sites we had there for testing were dog slow.

    On our servers not only do we configure and optimize for WordPress, even during a recent DDOS attack our servers fought them off with a load never going above 1.5 - I cannot remember the exact number right now ... lol

    However, all in all if your happy then I am happy and if some day you want to test this out just let me know and I will show you real performance the likes of which you have probably never experienced before.

    Cheers, Joe
