I understand what a wildcard SSL does for multi-site. I am understanding domain mapping.
1. If I have a wildcard SSL covering subdomains, with domain mapping, will the server read the subdomain or the mapped domain. If it reads the mapped domain, will the user experience a warning that it is not secure if I force https?
2. My hosting service is advising that if I have a wildcard SSL, I will have to request an SSL change everytime a new subdomain is added at $5 per addition. This could really complicate things. I was wondering how Wordpress.com handles this or if anyone else can chime in to see if this is normal course for other multisite users.
Thanks for any help,
