SharePoint 2010 SSL Certificcate

Hello all.  I've worked with MOSS 2007 quite a bit, but I am faced with implementing SharePoint 2010 Enterprise for a client and had just a few quick questions.

What SSL would you recommend?  In the past I have always gone with a wildcard certificate just because SharePoint sites with different FQDNs might crop up as the needs change.  Out of the box I believe you need at least two certificates if you aren't going wildcard?  One for the SharePoint site, and one for the "MySite"?  or can you make the "MySite" a subsite of the primary SharePoint site?  https://sp.domain.com/mysite for example..  Or does it have to be https://mysite.domain.com.  What is recommended?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

GoDaddy certs work well.  But ultimately, as long as you have a somewhat popular Certificate Authority, it won' tmatter.

I typically recommend wildcard, especially if you thnk there is a slight chance of multiple secured sites.  I just deployed a farm with a wildcard, which is used to secure their main site plus two internal sites exposed to the internet, and MySites.
