i am wondering, if one has a valid wildcard cert for *.mydomain.com, in order to host multiple secure subdomains from that cert would one need a static ip for each subdomain?  i think the answer is 'yes' but i figured i'd ask to make sure as i could find nobody stating this explicitly anywhere.

so, with a wldcard cert and two virtual hosts on the same ip:

x.mydomain.com -> 111.111.111.111
y.mydomain.com -> 111.111.111.111

is a no-no, right?

instead they all still need to be ip-based sites:

x.mydomain.com -> 111.111.111.111
y.mydomain.com -> 111.111.111.222

thanks.

Yes - you'd need a separate IP address, but only one cert.  So, x.mydomain.com and y.mydomain.com would need separate ip addresses.
