A new certificate would need to be issued for each domain/sub domain.  This
can become very expensive, and tedious.  All links would also need to be
hard coded to use the SSL/HTTPS.  Most home users, or small shops would not
be willing to make the investment as there is no return.

Just my 2 cents...

Subject: questions on SSL

I'm lookig for some comments regarding using SSL to encrypt connectivity to
entire website as opposed to just certain critical connections such as an
online banking link at a financial institutions. is this a more common
practice now? Bandwidth wouldn't seem to be as big an issue as it was in the
past with dialup connections. 
Can one SSL certificate be used to encrypt multiple links originating from
the same site:
https://x.domain.com
https://y.domain.com

thanks for the feedback
